Weve been deeply moved by all the volunteers who have come together to help with Sandy Relief efforts in the past month. We are dedicating Queens Tech Meetup 5 to explore how technology has played a role in NYCs recovery. Come and learn how to give back for the Holidays.
Following the demo portion, QTM5 will lead into a Holiday Party with music by DJ Spooky and co-hosted with See | Me & Origin magazine. Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
