D.C. TechBreakfast is back this week with a chance to win two tickets to a Washington Nationals game. If you can’t make it to Chevy Chase, head to Columbia instead for a Lean Startup Meetup discussion on using technology to improve healthcare, where four panelists from different businesses will be speaking. On Wednesday evening, the PHP Meetup will discuss the creation of PDF documents over pizza. And on Thursday, head to the University of Maryland BioPark for a discussion on the convergence of medicine and engineering, and how engineers are transforming the healthcare industry.
