Join Out in Tech for “Innovation in Dating, Tech Shaping the Way We Love”

February 24, 2015 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, join us for a conversation with the creative minds whose work shapes the way we initiate connections, form meaningful relationships, and search for love. We’ll also explore the engineering processes behind building online dating profiles, investigate the influences of geo-location and other common matchmaking app features. Following the panel, guests will be invited to stay for a networking cocktail reception.




This event for Out in Tech is community supported, meaning that for those are who are able we ask a small donation to cover the costs of the event. Thank you!
