Manoa Geeks is a regular gathering of people working or interested in Web 2.0, online entrepreneurship and startups, programming and development, and science and technology.
First held at a small coffee shop in Manoa Valley, the event has quickly grown to become one of Hawaii’s best forums for friendly, casual, and collaborative geekery and networking. These meetups now draws dozens of people from a wide spectrum of pursuits, bringing together everyone from engineers to artists, from educators to entrepreneurs, from geeks-in-the-making to visiting or recently relocated leaders in the global technology space.
The November 2008 meetup will be held at Thirtyninehotel and is hosted by Blue Lava Technologies, creators of iLovePhotos.
