Where To Find Techies In Charlotte
Posted on January 29, 2012 by James Stewart Jr
If you like technology startups, technology hacks, or overall interested in technology here are 5 places to start looking.
- Are you excited by tech startups? Do you read Hacker News? Want to meet other people in Charlotte who are like you? Charlotte Hackers and Founders is for programmers, designers and entrepreneurs in the area who are interested in founding and discussing tech startups. We plan on meeting regularly to socialize, have a few drinks, talk about awesome new technology and share ideas that we’re excited about. If you’re interested in spreading your entrepreneurial wings, you’ll fit right in. Please note this meetup is about tech startups, not computer security.
- TechCLT was created by and for Charlotte’s tech and startup community. Many people ask the question “Why aren’t there more people like me in Charlotte?” TechCLT wants to answer that by providing a connection point for the silos and individuals that make up our community. There are many groups in Charlotte that are doing amazing things within the tech/startup community and TechCLT wants to point you to who those people are. Look them up. Connect with them on what they’re doing. Let’s build our future together.
- Hackerspace Charlotte is a location where people with common interests, usually in computers, technology, or digital or electronic art can meet, socialize and/or collaborate. Hackerspace Charlotte can be viewed as an open community lab incorporating elements of a machine shop, workshop and studio where hackers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.
- Full Time Geeks is a place where all different types of geeks can network, learn, explore different niche geek groups, collaborate on projects, hang out, make friends and have fun. If you are a geek and you want a base for the geek universe this will be the place to go. You can be a geek first and find your niche later. For now the site concentrates on local geeks, mostly the immediate Charlotte area, eventually it will expand to other areas.
- Packard Place is located in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, across from the future location for Romare Bearden Park. We are becoming the hot spot for entrepreneurs, as we are the first true home in Charlotte for entrepreneurs built by entrepreneurs. We have space for meetings and events and are currently leasing out space for high growth, entrepreneurial businesses.
