GOAT CONF ONE – RSVP UPDATE

Wow, you all have been great so far. Between the spread-sheet of doom and the coordination between 3 different companies and 12 core GOATs, we are really approaching a great milestone.

23 42 Days until GOAT CONF ONE (JULY 20)

Have you RSVP’d yet?

We will meet this Thursday in our regular spot at the Panera near Target and University. Bring your questions and you confirmations on the conference slash hackathon.

Hackathon – GENAi PHOTO BOOTH + ROBOT RACING

You read that right. We are adding another installation to the studio! We will drop down to 2 speakers (unless you really want to speak, let me know ASAP) and do more hands-on activity. We are a group of Makers not Yappers.

We need you to drop a confirmation email and talk to your goat that invited you. We may need to split day between hackathon and “conference” part. Both will be streamed. Please comment below if you would like to attend event, your name, phone, and which part of the event are you most interested in.

GOATS + STAFF + GUESTS = MAX(43)

Thank you,
