Technology events for August 2020

This may be our shortest event listing ever, with just 5 entries. 😐

Here is the good news: WordCamp Asheville is happening in 2020. The organizers have announced that they will be holding a virtual event next month, on September 11 & 12. I'm loving the "Home Sweet Home" cross-stitch theme; check out the official website for more goodness. The calls for volunteers and for speakers are open now.

Here's a new resource, free for 6 months in The Time of COVID™: the WNC Tech Finder (AKA "WTF"). This is a tool built by Alyx Perry and brought to you by Meet the Geeks for connecting organizations with talented folks in the tech industry for jobs, contracts and projects of all kinds of projects. Post your info, your job or your project and start making connections!

Take care of each other.
