Technology events in Asheville, NC for November 2019

As we move out of our candy comas and into "The Holiday Season™," tech events start to thin out around here. We've still got plenty on the docket, but the details are a little scant for now. Here are a couple of notables:

  • The Hatch This! hackathon begins tonight and runs all weekend. More information and tickets available here.

  • The Asheville Area WordPress Group will host an introduction to Git on Wednesday evening. See below for details.

I'll see you out there.
