Current Events Tampa Bay Uncategorized

What’s happening in the Tampa Bay tech/entrepreneur/nerd scene (Week of Monday, June 24, 2019)

Every week, I compile a list of events for developers, technologists, tech entrepreneurs, and nerds in and around the Tampa Bay area. We’ve got a lot of events going on this week, and here they are!

This weekly list is posted as a voluntary service to the Tampa tech community. With the notable exception of Tampa iOS Meetup, which I run, most of this information comes from, EventBrite, and other local event announcement sites. I can’t guarantee the accuracy of the dates and times listed here; if you want to be absolutely sure that the event you’re interested in is actually taking place, please contact the organizers!

Tampa’s Women Who Code chapter is holding a two-part event this week featuring Tampa Bay tech evangelist Russ Fustino. Part one covers Xamarin Forms, a cross-platform UI toolkit that’s also one of the simplest ways to create native applications for Android, iOS, and the Universal Windows Platform. He’ll demonstrate building an app and deploying it to Android, iOS, and Windows devices. Part two covers the blockchain system made by Algorand, which boasts throughput on par with large financial networks and immediate transaction finality. He’ll explain Algorand’s protocol, demonstrate node management with command-line tools, and show how to build layer 2 applications using Algorand’s SDK.

“Secrets of the Undercroft” may sound like the title for a Harry Potter novel, but it’s an open house for a new player in the Tampa Bay tech scene. The Undercroft is a guild whose goal is to grow the area’s individual, organizational, and economic security by advancing innovation, creativity, and security knowledge. Their space, located in one of Ybor City’s charming old buildings, will features training rooms, a media studio, conference rooms, shared workspaces, rack space, and even an ISOC (information security operations center). They’re opening soon, and this is your chance to get an early look at their space and find out more about them.
