Eventbrite - Silicon Halton Meetup #69: Homebrew Developers ProjectsShare, learn, talk, demo and network with fellow developers meet up on July 14th at the Halton Hive. This meetup has been built around suggestions and ideas from SH members that code and create software and applications. It's designed for them.

We want developers to see and talk about their homebrew projects. Developers can formally or informally demo the "stuff" they're working on at this meetup. That app you've been developing on the side, in your basement or garage! 

Slidedeck here: 


  • 7:00 - 7:30 : Show up and settle in for a great night!
  • 7:30 - 9:00 : Homebrew demos (we're thinking 10 minutes per of about 7-8 demos)
  • 9:00 -        : Networking, informal homebrew demos, ping-pong, fooseball...
