And a year later, the general name New Tech Community seems to have just stuck. It was started so that folks in Palm Beach County had a way to network with other Web developers and tech entrepreneurs (without having to drive to Fort Lauderdale or Miami). With meetings typically held around Boca Raton, the group celebrates it's 1-year anniversary tonight.
Group moderator Elesha Gabrielle Aflalo told me that about 50 to 100 people are now coming to meetings. It's just one of several networks around South Florida that meet every few weeks to boost South Florida's Silicon Beach tech scene dreams.
At tonight's meeting, the New Tech Community is giving away some prizes. And they will feed you food.
It's from 6:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the The Wyndham Garden Hotel Boca Raton. More info here: http://newtechsept.eventbrite.com/
