If you’re a developer or tech-minded person in the Tampa Bay area and you’re looking for some fun conversation this evening, join us tonight from 6:30 to 9:00 at New World Brewery in Ybor City for Ybor Tech’s June OpenHack!

OpenHack Ybor, held once a month, is run by local Ruby developer Tony Winn and Jessica Arango for techies of all stripes who want to get to know their local peers, see what they’re up to, and enjoy some craft beer and free pizza.

We usually gather on the patio of New World Brewery, a brewery-turned-bar in Ybor City, Tampa’s historic warehouse district that was once home to a large cigar-making industry and is now one of those hip mixed-use areas with schools, offices, bars, restaurants, and alas, the Church of Scientology. You can’t win ’em all.

Some of us are just happy to converse, and some of us like to pull out our computers and show off their latest project or gear. Either approach works just fine, and Tony usually brings a wifi hotspot for those of you who need to get online. There are tables a plenty to “set up shop”, and the covered part of the patio has outlets.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention New World’s excellent selection of beers…

…and for you Marvel/pinball fans, their current selection of distractions is pretty nice too:

It’s also worth mentioning that whoever’s in charge of the music at New World has eclectic, excellent taste.
