My friends at O'Reilly passed along word that another Ignite Boston is coming on September 11th. I went to the last one (some pictures below), and it was a blast! A great chance to hear about a wide variety of topics and chat with fellow New England techies.
The Fourth Ignite Boston will be on Thursday, September 11, from 6 to 10pm at the Hooley House, one block from Faneuil Hall in Boston, MA. This is a larger venue, so the acoustics will be better than our last event and there will be room to sit, stand and mingle.
From 6:00-6:45 pm, mingle and talk tech with your fellow FOOs (Friends of O'Reilly), alpha geeks, and techies from the greater Boston area.
After the mingling and social stuff, we'll have a couple of special keynote presentations to kick off our Ignite talks. Then, on to guest speakers who'll catch you up on the cool, new, innovative stuff going on in technology today. Don't blink or you'll miss their lightning-fast, five-minute presentations. During intermissions, get a cold beer and chat with speakers, sponsors, and O'Reilly's own editors. Join us Thursday, September 11th, for a fun, energetic evening of talking, learning, collaborating and drinking!
Check out the events and activities of our previous Ignite events. RSVP if you plan to attend by emailing IgniteBoston at oreilly dot com.

For anyone that's never been to Ignite, you may find it useful to see a talk or two. Here's a few good examples from Ignite Boston 3.
Thanks to O'Reilly for bringing these events to our area!
