28 Feb SxSW Parties, Panels and More: The DC Guide
DC is converging on Austin, Texas for another year of SxSW Interactive. The following is a list of links and events to help you connect with the DC Tech community while you’re there.
I will update this list as I get insights on additional events and panels leading up to March 7th. If you know of additional DC-focused events (or events DC folks are welcome to attend) or SxSW panels feature DC folks, please add them to the comments or e-mail email@example.com and I will add them to this list.
Foster.ly has published a list of people from the DMV area attending. Make sure to add yourself to the list: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ash7JA1KdOOydGVmNUdjSHlTMmpNUUZMUXNEYndEQWc&usp=drive_web#gid=0
They are also managing a Twitter list: https://twitter.com/Fosterly/lists/fosterly-at-sxsw-2014
There is a Facebook group to help you connect with past and present attendees from our region: https://www.facebook.com/groups/dcsxsw/
