Summer is almost upon us at BOCA! For many, that means taking a well-deserved vacation, but we’re also excited to get out to several hot tech events. Without further ado, here’s what we have on our list for the summer:
Date: Thursday June 4th, at 6:00pm
Location: Geekdom San Francisco by Rackspace
620 Folsom St #100, San Francisco
The monthly Tech in Motion event brings many different tech professionals from various industries together. Not only do you meet different people at each event, but the venue and the theme change every month. For instance, past themes included VR, successful women in tech, tech education and more. All events are free, and you don’t have to be in a specific tech industry like engineering to attend. Check out the Meetup page for more details on this refreshingly unique tech event.
Date: Wednesday July 8th, at 6:00pm
Location: General Assembly
225 Bush Street 5th Floor, San Francisco
Uncharted Minds is a leadership series that invites prominent tech industry professionals to discuss their strategies and successes in front of a live audience. Past themes included Bitcoin growth, a debate about the future of wearables and innovation in food startups. Like Tech in Motion, it’s a recurring event with new meetups typically scheduled on a bimonthly basis. Although it’s a paid event, you’ll learn a lot and have the opportunity to interact with tech experts.
Date: July 13th and 14th 8:00 am-6:45 pm
Location: Hilton Union Square
333 O’ Farrell St, San Francisco
VentureBeat, a popular publication for tech aficionados, also provides a comprehensive tech conference lineup throughout the year. We’re most excited for MobileBeat though, which takes place in July. MobileBeat focuses not only on the growing role of the smartphone, but also how companies who don’t adapt to mobile risk being left behind. MobileBeat includes dozens of industry speakers discussing current tech trends, and with thousands of attendees it’s a great place to network.
Date: May 28th-29th and June 8th- June 12th from 9:00 am- 5:00 pm
Location: Moscone Center West
747 Howard St, San Francisco
The tech giants Google and Apple have a profound effect on the rest of the industry. That’s why we’re excited to see what new products and announcements make headlines at Google I/O and WWDC15. Will VR continue to be a big focus for Google? Is the Apple Watch a failure? No matter the outcome these two conferences will provide us with a taste of each tech giant’s future strategy and how new technological breakthroughs will impact our lives. Even if you can’t attend, remember you can read all the breaking news stories and watch select live panels online.
Date: Saturday, May 30th, 2015 from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm
Location: Mitchell Park Community Center 3700
Middlefield Rd, Palo Alto, CA
Middlefield Rd, Palo Alto, CA
San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area are already futuristic cities. However, it’s exciting to imagine what life will be like here 15 years from now. That’s the focus of Palo Alto 2030 The Summit, a free event open to the public. If you’re interested in sharing your vision for the future and how to solve current tech problems then let your voice be heard on May 30th, 2015.
This is just a small sample of the tech events we’re excited about this summer. Hopefully you can make it to at least one of these for the opportunity to learn something new and meet interesting people while you enjoy your summer.
