Before you begin contemplating popping the cap off of a fire hydrant, consider this week’s tech events calendar. This week is packed with events you won’t want to miss. Although we can’t promise anything, there will likely be free air conditioning, too.
This week get the low-down on what’s hot and new in Mac on Tuesday, check up on the folks at Hive76 on Wednesday and join Technically Philly at the Supernova Forum 2010 on Thursday and Friday.
Tuesday, July 27: If you need something to do in between waiting in line at the Apple Store, the Macintosh Business Users Society monthly meet-up is the event for you. Head down to Dorrance Hamilton Hall on Broad Street and get a speak-peak at new hardware and software. You’ll see product demonstrations of the hot new Apple stuff, often before their general release to the public. 6:30 p.m. South Philly. INFO[view more events]
Wednesday, July 28: Just like they do every week, the kind citizens at Hive76 are opening their doors to all of us this Wednesday. Drop by to work on hardware or software projects, or come early for the Hive76 planning, or “scrum,” meeting at 7:00 pm. Not that you need the added incentive, but they also have free pizza. 8:00 pm.
