Social data is exploding and scientists, like Hilary, are gaining new insights into human behavior. But how can we use this data to create something meaningful? How can all of us - scientists, developers, artists, and other innovators - work together to build tools or products that make the world more productive, interesting and beautiful?

Join 501c3 Urban ReThink for an inspirational day with a leading creative mind. May 6th, 2012 at 1:30pm at Urban ReThink, 625 E Central Blvd. There will be a special luncheon at noon before the talk for sponsors of the event. See Urban ReThink for sponsor opportunities.

Born from the desire to share and learn in an open environment, BarCamp Orlando is back and better than ever.

What is it?

BarCamp Orlando is an annual community-building event which aims to bring people from different backgrounds together for cooperative learning. Technologies such as Ruby, PHP, Java and C will be present alongside graphic design, music, photography, and other new media. We hope to provide free t-shirts and lunch to all attendees, but can only do so with assistance from sponsors.

Florida Creatives Happy Hour

Location

Lazy Moon Pizza
12269 University Blvd
Orlando, FL 32817
Phone: (407) 658-2396
Community or Meetup: 
Jan 16 2012 6:00p - 9:00p

Join Orlando's longest-running creative meetup to celebrate our 5th year of bringing likeminded people together. You can get great benefits out of meeting new people, like stimulating your brain, having a safe (non-judgemental) place to talk shop, finding someone to help you build that next startup, or just making friends. Lazy Moon is a local hot spot (if you live in East Orlando) with awesome pizza, great deals, craft beers and a "punk as f**k" vibe. If you're a UCF student you get a discount for skipping class.
