I am putting together a Processing workshop at the Hive this coming Thursday (April 4th). The workshop will run from 6pm to 10pm.
The focus is to introduce designers, artists and people who are not super technical to the Processing framework. We have a nice group put together so far - a lot of different creative professionals with a few programmers to help out.
There is approximately 10 seats left. The workshop is by donation to help cover the cost of the space (suggested $20) - if you are broke I would rather you come than give me any money. Any money past the cost of the space will go towards beer and/or pizza.
I will talk and do some demos for about an hour and then we will all build stuff. You will need a laptop to attend.
I think that is it… get at me if you want to come. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org

There are four upcoming tech events that need some community support to get off the ground. If any of these are appealing to you, please get in touch with the organizer directly.
Startup Grind The team from Startup Grind just completed a successful run in the Valley (http://startupgrind.com/) and are looking to replicate the magic in Vancouver. They had some heavy hitting speakers in SFO including: Clayton Christensen and Steve Blank. If you are interested in joining this project fire Cheryl an email at: email@example.com
Startup Weekend Vancouver The next edition of Startup Weekend is coming up in May and the Lead Organizer, Yaniv Talmor will need hands on deck to make it awesome.

Sports Hack Day I just got back from Sports Hack Day (http://sportshackday.com/) Seattle during the Superbowl and had an amazing time hacking on APIs from ESPN and others building sports related apps and visualizations.

Hey fellow entrepreneurs,
Some of you may have already heard about FounderDating (no, it’s not romantic), but for those of you who haven’t I wanted to let you know about it. FounderDating (FD) is an invite-only, online network for entrepreneurs to connect with cofounders in Vancouver and elsewhere. Why FD?
If anyone is interested in working on some serious side projects or collaborating with other entrepreneurs, there’s an online curated network called FounderDating that’s accepting applications by February 27th for Vancouver.
Here’s a link with more information: http://bit.ly/WjXq5K
