Dear Fellow Refresher,
Thank you for signing up to be part of our community through our website, Facebook, LinkedIn, the Google group, and BarCampMiami.
Our next meetup marks our third anniversary! Miami has come a long way techwise and you helped make it happen. We look forward to celebrating with you next week at the party.
Alex de Carvalho - @alexdc and
Brian Breslin - @brianbreslin
Come join us for the third anniversary of RefreshMiami! We will be celebrating on April 29, 2009 at 7:30PM at the new Brikolodge.
Over a hundred and people have attended each of the past three RefreshMiami meetups and we’re expecting even more next Wednesday for the party. So if you haven't attended yet, this is a great opportunity to meet the community.
There will be food, wine, beer, sodas, and other snacks and refreshments. We will also be joined by a local band! So bring a friend with you, but make sure you RSVP at the facebook page.
RefreshMiami events are free thanks to the generosity of these awesome sponsors!
3301 NE 1st Ave Unit L207

Who said South Florida has no tech community? Have you seen this list of upcoming new media events? To judge from the local media, though, nothing's happening. Craig Agranoff wrote a landmark article about the lack of coverage:
Doesn’t it seem odd some local companies fly to Austin to meet fellow tekkies, but don’t come to local events? This is most likely due to the fact that they just don’t know!
Until the time when our local media covers the tech scene, it is up to us as a community to spread the word. Have a look at this list and tell your friends about these great events, including:
Facebook Developer Garage Miami: Learn about Facebook from a development perspective, marketing perspective, and social perspective as well.
LaidOffCamp Miami, an ad-hoc gathering of job seekers and self-employed people (including entrepreneurs and startups) who want to share ideas and learn from each other.
