This year’s "/hobnob” event, Gainesville’s annual opportunity to “mix socially with Gainesville techies,” will take place Tuesday, Nov. 3, from 5:30-7 p.m. The gathering, sponsored by the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce and Gainesville Tech Council will feature the newest and second MADE@UF space at Infinity Hall, located at 978 Southwest 2nd Ave.
The /hobnob is a “non-traditional job and internship fair for sophomores and juniors specializing in science, technology, engineering, arts and math,” according to the organizers.
MADE@UF, or Mobile App Development Environment at UF, is a UFIT-based project implemented in collaboration with the George A. Smathers Libraries, and most recently, an additional location with additional partners, Student Housing and Infinity Hall.
The Mobile App Development Environment at UF seeks to create an environment encouraging learning and creativity, while instilling procedures, policies and standards for mobile app publication. This space is intended to foster an experiential educational opportunity leading to contact with an entrepreneurial environment.
Leonardo's by the Slice will serve specialty pizzas at /hobnob 2015 and a DJ will provide the music.
