Ugly Sweater Show and Share 2019

Have you been working on a personal project that you’re really passionate about? Are you dying to tell the world about a cool thing you built and maybe even get some constructive feedback? If so, come join us for our fourth-annual Ugly Sweater Show and Share! Everyone is welcome, you don’t have to share!

Note: It doesn’t have to be web related. Ideas: a logo you’ve designed, a hardware project you’ve been playing with, a cool cross-stitch you’ve been working on, etc.

Shift Interactive has graciously lent us their screen printing press, so BYOT/S (Bring Your Own T-Shirt or Sweater) so we can screen print you an ugly sweater design. There will also be a button making machine!

So let’s eat, drink, and be merry by wearing ugly sweaters and celebrating each other’s personal projects.

If you’ll join us, we’d love for you to RSVP here on Eventbrite.

For logistics sake, if you’re intending to demo something, please briefly fill out the following
