Hey everyone! @trogus and I are headed to TechDay New York tomorrow (May 10) and there will be a devRant booth in the social network section. If any devRanters are attending, you should definitely stop by our booth! There will be free swag and we’d love to meet some fellow ranters!

    Have fun! Would love to see some pictures orso... If only just to make the rest of us jealous on that swag you mentioned

    Is there free swag? Can I just walk in? I might be able to attend but maybe during the day/not at opening.

    40min bus...

    @Floydian @Condor @joykill thanks, we’ll try to post some photos/maybe take a video!

    @billgates there will be free swag, and probably just as fast to just walk, sadly :) I think entry pass is like $20.

    @dfox mind finding out when you get there? on the site it says free but registration is now close.

    Should've told us like a week earlier. I was thinking I could drop by for a few hours maybe but not of it costs $20.

    OT:
    Hi @dfox, do you guys send any confirmation email when you receive requests for free swag?
  • 3
    @billgates I think we have one extra pass if you’re able to make it here, but either way we will probably do another nyc meetup soon :)

    And now I've shuffled the entire day and n even got the OK from my boss...

    Now only question, if I show up in a Google T-shirt, I won't get beat up right? (I don't work for Google).

    @dfox np, so here's all the swag I picked up, and the Google shirt I was wearing.
  • 11
    And lots of stuff on their table... Even had an avatar printer... No ++ required so I got the White Tiger!

    Thought I took more pics but apparently only took 3 total at the booth...

    @CozyPlanes not sure what you mean. I woke up in the morning and saw then replanned my day

    Oh yea, so this was me in the "fast pass" line. I was first waiting in the long general admissions line then showed the ticket @dfox sent to a security guy walking by and he let me into the Investors/Press line.

    I then became the only guy wearing a T-shirt

    @Floydian yea it's been years since I've been to a tech expo. Last expo I went to was a Travel one... Just ended up with lots of brochures.

    Also just noticed this one. I guess someone in TomTom is on devRant or know @theNSA

    @billgates what other cool tech did you come across?

    Were there any new promising startups on display?
  • 2
    @Floydian theres was a in home robot but i dunno the details. There were a lot of ML/analytics stuff like for businesses, recruiting firms similar to Triplebyte, some mobile payments and shopping, some medical data systems.

    Actually u can get a description of them all here. https://techdayhq.com/new-york/...

    nut nothing like the Mobile World Conference or E3. Mostly startups.

    @dfox i was wondering were there a lot of devs there? it sorta felt to me most exhibits seemed to be targeting businesses, managers, or consumers, students, investors.
  • 2
    @billgates Thanks. Let me have a look at the link.

    Do such events often happen there? I love them as we get to network a lot.

    @Floydian well this is New York City, there's some social event every day.

    Actually I just happened to be in the city this morning for a doctor's appointment so just took the rest of the day off.
  • 2
    @billgates Well that's really great.

    You are not from New York? I thought you lived there.

    @Floydian I live in Jersey City which is across from it. Yesterday's picture was from the doctor's office.

    @CozyPlanes No that's just some guy they bought along.

    Yes that's Tim.
