Here’s another bonus task for the class and an announcement about a set of interesting events going on next week. First, the event:

Check out this really cool event, brewing right in our Philly backyard!
  1. Philly Tech Week – there will be 45 events, many of which should be right up your alley as an MIS student.
  2. Switch Philly – April 26th at 6pm hosted by tech news blog, Technically Philly. This is one of the signature events during Philly Tech Week. There will be 5 Philly tech companies that will demo their latest and greatest for 7 minutes each. See Ohanarama, cWyz, Laan Labs and others show off Philly’s next big thing at The Wharton School of Business. The event will last just over an hour, and then they will head over to the Blockley Pourhouse for happy hour afterwards. Tickets are $9 but they are offering a special deal for Temple students and faculty members. Get your tickets for $5 by using the coupon code “Temple” when you buy your ticket on Ticketleap today. Most of the other Philly Tech Week event s are free to attend.
