TechFriday in July… TechFri(edApple)day in August

July 10, 2007

TechBirmingham ordinarily hosts our TechFriday meetings at New Horizons on the 2nd Friday of each month from 7:45am to 9:00am. But, next month (August) we’ll be doing things a bit differently. With the opening of the new Apple Store in Birmingham, we’re going to hold the August 10th event there. The good folks at the Apple Store will do an iPhone and a cross platform presentation, then offer breakouts. More details soon here on the TechBirmingham Blog.

In the meantime, please join us THIS Friday, yes the 13th <oooooh>, for our regularly scheduled TechFriday breakfast meeting. Hosted by New Horizons Birmingham, this event includes free breakfast and serves as an “open table” for discussing the technology ecosystem here in Birmingham. Arrive and mingle at 7:45am – directed discussions usually begin around 8:15am.

Please RSVP to Bill Ivey at 533.9714 or by email to william.ivey@newhorizons.com. See you there!
