Limited Capacity filling up

You have an idea and need help building it. First you need to learn what Python, Ruby, JVM, and C# means for launching your new company. Pitch your startup concept to a panel of programming language experts. Our panelists will make a case for their favorite tech tools to form the basis of your startup. 
You may have heard about Python. Did you know Kevin Systrom used Python to make Instagram worth $1bn? Learn during our session why so many startups like Airbnb and Twitter choose to start with Ruby. Wonder what’s the acronym JVM gotta do with AI and the future of self-driving cars? If you’re starting-up in Seattle home of Microsoft, maybe you need to learn about C#, and we’re not talking music theory. 
Join us in the audience and have the alphabet soup of modern tech explained by some of the top engineers in Seattle. Attending our event will prepare you to recruit your future cofounder. 
Apply to share your idea with our panelists, email don at sheuDotCom.
