HackREGINA Spring 2014 Kickoff Party!

This event’s kickoff party will be hosted by GB Internet Solutions.  GB is proud parents to GasBuddy.com and OpenStoreLoyalty.com, and while they don’t like to play favorites, the GasBuddy app has over 30 million downloads!  Check out opportunites to work with GB on their careers page.

The HackREGINA kickoff party will be Friday, March 14th starting at 7 PM at Slow Food Pub on Albert St.  Our kickoff party is a great opportunity to network with other participants, sponsors, and judges before everyone gets serious at the event the next day.  There’s a few reasons you’ll want to come:

  • Stickers! – We’ll be making some of the stickers we’ve received over the last few events available to anyone who wants them.  Your laptop can finally be complete with its own Twilio sticker!
  • Vendor Loot! – Speaking of which, we’ve got some extra goodies to hand out at the party.  We’ll try to think up some creative games so people can win t-shirts and other prizes
  • Free Food! – Snacks will be provided for everyone.
  • Free Beer! – A free drink will be supplied to everyone who shows up thanks to our good friends at GB.
  • Networking! – Hang out with other participants, our event sponsors, and perhaps even some judges.  I hear the judges enjoy free drinks ;)

See you there!
