“IN THE CAPITAL PRESENTS” HACKER HUSTLER DESIGNER
6 – 9 PM
Lost Society| 2001 14th St NW; Washington, DC
We wanted this meetup to revolve around the people that are in the trenches getting things dones. That’s the Hackers, Hustlers and Designers. Hackers: It’s tough out there for a ninja. We know. You are coding all day and need the right team to help you make it pretty and take it to market. We heard you loud and clear. Hustlers: 007 couldn’t hold a candle to you once you get off the ground running. That $10-$15k burning a hole in your pocket? You are looking for the right group of guys who you can trust, get the job done and you can have a beer with? You my friend have come to the right place. Designers: All dressed up and nowhere to go? Now you do! No longer does your beautiful work have to live and die in photoshop. You are among friends. We have partnered with the good folks over at Kojami to ensure that you get checked in and tagged the right way. Upon entry you will be tagged as a Hacker Hustler Designer with the #ITCMeetup.
