Meetups Tampa Bay

Thursday in Tampa: High Tech Connect Fest *and* Tampa Devs meetup!

High Tech Connect’s January Tech Fest (4:30 – 7:30 p.m. @ Wine & Wood)

High Tech Connect’s next get-together happens this Thursday in swanky Hyde Park at Wine & Wood, a wine bar that also makes wood-fired pizza. It starts a little early — 4:30 p.m. and runs until 7:30 p.m..

High Tech Connect is organizing this event in collaboration with:

High Tech Connect’s happy hours are perfect for getting to know the movers and shakers of Tampa Bay’s growing tech scene. One of them was particularly life-changing for me; I attended one back in 2019, ended up on StartupBus days later, ended up on a finalist team taking the stage in New Orleans shortly after that, and I used that win as part of my application for my current job in Okta’s Auth0 division.

Tampa Devs’ Meet & Greet (6:00 – 9:00 p.m. @ Armature Works)

Tampa Devs’ next get-together also happens on Thursday at Armature Works, Tampa Bay’s premier food hall. It’s a big place, so they’ve designated a meeting spot: outside on the green lawn near the giant outdoor chess/checkers boards.

Tampa Devs is an exceedingly popular meetup group, and over 100 people have already RSVP’d for this event (don’t worry — Armature Works is a huge space, and unless it rains, they’re planning to keep the gathering outside). If you want to get to know people in Tampa’s tech community, you’ll want to go!
