Tech events in Middle Tennessee

calendar_pushpinsWe talk to a lot of people about what they like most about living in the Nashville area – in fact, keeping our finger on the pulse of Middle Tennessee is part of what we do. A common theme among the people who call Music City home is the spirit of collaboration that’s woven into the fabric of our community. It’s easy to build a network here – all you have to do is go out and start meeting new people. And with that in mind, here are a few upcoming tech community events to add to your calendar.
