See you tomorrow night at 6pm at (South Entrance)!


We’re really looking forward to seeing you and your friends tomorrow night. You are welcome to come for just Friday night or for the whole weekend. If you stay, you’ll be able to begin development of applications that can help transform Burlington and the rest of Vermont in areas such as health care, education, clean energy, and public safety, not to mention enjoying BBQ flown in from Kansas City. And you’ll be able to use the platforms listed below, as well as “drive” a Beam robot in San Francisco.

Bring your imagination, your A game, and your appetites!
