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.
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!
Recently some of the members of our group have been organizing a few trips to local destinations and ones further away. Back in February some of us visited NorthEast Surplus and Materials, an erecycling outfit run by Jim Moltion a very knowledgeable and friendly retired engineer who operates the non-profit out of a warehouse on Geddes right in the Syracuse West Side.
I'm pleased to invite everyone to our first workshop @ the Syracuse Innovators Guild, which will be an introduction to developing web applications with Ruby on Rails. The presentation and walk-through will be starting tonight at 7PM, though I will be at the space a little earlier, starting @6PM to help people setup their environment.
Another exciting month at the Syracuse Innovators Guild, many fun projects are underway, we've held several open houses with many attendees from many different backgrounds, hosted movie and game nights to get people together and socializing, all the while having a blast at the same time.
