SIG VP, Mark Scrano recently set up a Minecraft server for SIG members. If you are a current member, and want access, all you need to do is buy Minecraft for the PC/Mac/Linux, and talk to Mark about getting permissions on your user name. If you aren't a SIG member - but you would like to participate - you will have to wait until the spring, when we open it up to the public. If you are a SIG member - the land-grab has begun! Get your account today.
After a weekend long battle between team PyStand and team Awesome!, the votes have been tabulated and a winner has been chosen. Congratulations team PyStand for pulling together an impressive piece of software in 48hrs! I would also like to thank everyone who participated in this weekends events. It was a blast getting to know everyone.
Pictures are up on facebook!
Just wanted to shout out in recognition of esigns.coma custom online print shop who was kind enough to donate a large dry-erase street sign for use by the guild. Esigns has many great products for very good prices and I am very happy with the quality and size of the sign they sent us. I took a couple of snapshots of the sign in action, should be very useful to draw people into the space!
In no particular order:
* SIG member Jeff Mahon has finished work on his wooden workbench at the guild and it is looking really solid (both literally and figuratively). Looking forward to when the workshop is full of them!
Glad to say the e-recyling day last Saturday was a success. We had a few guild members show up to help sort through and inventory drop-offs and help clear the way for the next batch. Really looking forward to the next one! Next, be sure to checkout this promo video for the CNY Artists art gallery which the guild will be visiting the Saturday after next (09/10/11 @3pm).
Hey all, be sure to checkout these upcoming events being put on by various groups in the Syracuse Community.
We've got some great events planned for later on this week at the Guild. First off, this Thursday night (08/04) at 7PM, Jeff Mahon is holding a beer making workshop covering beer history, the basic of brewing, and tips / tricks to making the best brew.
The following night, Mark Scrano is holding the next class in his Information Security series, and will be discussing a Live Linux distribution called Tails which integrates Tor and I2p networks.
Both events are looking to be fun and informative times, hope to see everyone there!
As a followup to the night of lightning talks, I will be giving a presentation / walkthrough of the Ruby programming language on the night of Wednesday July 13th at 7:00PM. The event will be held at the Syracuse Innovators Guild's new home at 3650 James Street. All are welcome, the event will be free of charge, though a $5 or $10 donation is suggested for non-members.
The Syracuse Innovators Guild invites everyone to attend our first night of lightning talks! Currently scheduled for Tuesday Jun 21st at the Tech Garden, this is a night of informal 5-10 minute presentations where anyone is invited to stand up and talk about something they are passionate about! We already have a few presenters lined up around web development, project management, gui development, the C# and Ruby languages and there is alot more to come! All are welcome!
