It’s been a long and good year in the Brooklyn tech world and it’s now time to go to holiday parties and hear about the projects, successes and setbacks from your fellow technologists.
There’s a lot of parties out there, so we’ll help you get the lay of the land and make the most out of where you spend your time drinking wine out of little plastic glasses held on top of tiny napkins.
