For those about to party, we salute you.
Drop your networking plans. Leave your business cards at home. This week is about having fun. Saturday will see you through two geekified parties that are sure to be ‘off the hook,’ as those darn kids are saying these days.
Join 8Static for its first chiptunes and classic video gaming-inspired party since May. And if you’re not down to dance, Philly Geek Party launches its inaugural and hopefully monthly party for the nerds out there. Both should be a trip. That is, if the G Lounge just ain’t your style.
Earn that ‘five o’clock somewhere’ philosophy with a handful of other events happening throughout the week.
Wharton Small Business Development Center will host a conference call Tuesday afternoon to talk you through how it can help you launch your dream biz. On Wednesday, learn intuitive interfaces with a joint meeting of PhillyCHI and UsabilityNJ. Also Wednesday, Philly Startup Leaders will help refine DocASAP, an online doctor’s appointment scheduling platform that we covered last week, in one of its informative fishbowl sessions.
All events listed on the event calendar are free to attend. Be sure to check our complete calendar for more information, or follow us past the jump.
Tuesday, July 14: The Wharton Small Business Development Center will host a conference call to discuss how it can help your small business. This event would be par for the course, but we’ve seen some great projects come out of Wharton, including many of the projects in its business plan competition which we covered in April. Bonus, you don’t have to wear pants to this one. 12:00 p.m. Virtual. DETAILS. [view more events]
Wednesday, July 15: Philly CHI and UsabilityNJ will host a joint event led by presenter Jared Spool discussing intuitive user interfaces. Spool is a big dog in the user interface world, one that the two organizations aren’t shy to explain in their meeting promo. Real world advice from someone that is sure to be much more helpful than the iPhone UX stencil we’ve been eying up. 6:00 p.m. University City. RSVP. [view more events]
Wednesday, July 15: We already sent some love Wharton’s way, but it’s no coincidence that one of its entrepreneurs is making its way ’round these southeastern Pennsylvania parts. Philly Startup Leaders will host a fishbowl for DocASAP, a competitor in Wharton’s biz plan competition. We covered DocASAP last week, and we’re taking bets on where they end up next. New York? San Francisco? We certainly hope not! Head out to the fishbowl to give ’em a dose of your entrepreneurial knowledge and advice. 5 p.m. Center City. DETAILS. [view more events]
Saturday, July 18: The crew at 8Static must be antsy for Saturday. Their chiptunes music event was pushed back from June and anticipation has only been building. Anticipation which, for me, started back when I spent an entire weekend trying to play through Maniac Mansion on a busted console. I still have those tunes stuck in my head. Dance the 8-bit night away before those NES warranties expire. 8:00 p.m. West Philadelphia. DETAILS. [view more events]
Saturday, July 18: If there’s one thing Technically Philly been thinking about a lot lately, it is a regularly scheduled geek-oriented party in Philadelphia. Sometimes, we just wanna drop the business manners and let loose. But where? Philly Geek Party has got us covered. On Saturday, leave the business cards at home, order a drink for each hand and be the nerd that you are at the inaugural event. 9:00 p.m. Center City. DETAILS. [view more events]
