We already did a guide for college kids, now we’re doing a guide for developers. Here’s where to meet likeminded folks during Delaware Innovation Week.

  • East Coast ReBoot at Wilmington University (Nov. 11 – 13, various times): This conference invites you to “reboot your creative genius.” It’s a chance to get all those ideas out of your head and into practice. The idea is to channel creativity into technology.
  • Startup Weekend Delaware at Venture Development Center (Nov. 11 – 13, various times): Sixty seconds to pitch and 54 hours of code, this conference will put your startup ideas to the test. The first night will include pitching, while the rest of the weekend will be reserved for creating.
  • Dev Intro Workshops at Delaware Technical Community College’s Wilmington Campus (Nov. 15, 8:3 0a.m. – noon): This is where you can beef up your dev skills. Just show up with a “fully-charged laptop,” breakfast will be provided.
  • Dev Talks at Delaware Technical Community College’s Wilmington Campus (Nov. 15, noon – 4:30 p.m.): Here’s where over 10 experts will drop some knowledge. There will be lightening presentations and longer talks, make sure to take notes.
  • Dev Happy Hour at Merchant Bar (Nov. 15, 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.): Ah, you can finally relax here. Bring some business cards. You can talk to the people you didn’t get the chance to talk to earlier. This is where your notes will come in handy, they could make for great ice breakers.
  • Tech2gether at World Cafe Live at the Queen (Nov. 16, 10 a.m.): Here’s a quick recap of everything you need to know about this event. It’s a great catalyst for breaking into the tech community and will include a panel of founders, along with a student pitch contest.
  • #DIW16 Innovation Celebration at 1313 Innovation (Nov. 18, 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.): Here’s one more more chance to do final networking, exchange contact info and lock in those new relationships. This would be the time to reflect on the week, talk about future projects and hand out friendship bracelets … I mean, more business cards.
