Sharing is one of the few ideas we can all access - something that directly affects our day-to-day lives. The more technology we build to share our moments, perspectives, and lives, the better equipped we are to engage and redefine the human experience.
Nowadays, this idea is at the heart of the world's hottest startups. Snapchat, Uber, and Airbnb - they define the media’s buzzwords du jour: ride sharing, file sharing, sharing economy. Directly or not, they connect people to one another. And with the technology we have today, it's only a matter of time before even more brilliant ideas come to fruition.
We've prepared a weekend full of new learning opportunities for you. Get ready to get your hands wet with new technologies, pushing your limits, and making new friends. Just show up ready to go, and we'll handle the rest!
