Join us on Thursday, October 11th as we return to Stardust Video & Coffee in Audubon Park for an evening of thinking and drinking. This is REALLY important.
Nerd Nite is an evening of entertaining yet thought-provoking presentations– all while the audience drinks along in a casual atmosphere. Speakers present for 15-20 minutes each on a fascinating subject, often in an uncanny and unconventional way. Following each presentation is a brief Q&A with the audience.
Hosted by Ricardo Williams
THIS IS A FREE EVENT. We only accept donations.

PRESENTATION #1: “The Future is Blue (Collar): What the Software Industry Can Teach Us About Meeting Growing Job Demands” by Cassandra Wilcox
This presentation will touch on the growing job demands and why your 4-year degree is worth even less than you think.
PRESENTATION #2: “An Incomplete History of Queer America” by Scottie Campbell
The presentation will touch on 10 moments in LGBTQ+ American history that every person in the audience should know. The audience will learn a bit about the steps taken toward gay rights (which are our shared rights, really), and the precariousness of those rights.
