It has been six months since we began hosting meetups regularly at SingleStore. Our office is located in the heart of SoMa, two blocks from the Caltrain station. At the new San Francisco epicenter of tech startups, we want to meet our neighbors and see what other cool technologies are out there! What better way than over cold brews, local pizza and deep tech talks.
In honor of the first official meetup of 2016, we decided to take a look back at the meetups of 2015, and share highlights from each one. Hope to see you at 534th St on January 21st for an intimate conversation with Chandan Joarder on Building Real-Time Digital Insight at Macys.com!
Without further ado, we present Meetups: A Year in Review.
