There has been no better place to get your geek on in style this year than Tech the Halls. The event on December 12 at Co Co Sala brought together around 180 entrepreneurs, designers, developers, coders, strategists and UX professionals. It was the perfect opportunity to make new connections and strengthen old ones both within the UX community and within the broader DC tech community. Nine great local and national tech groups were represented.
This year the event had an air of elegance. The venue, Co Co Sala, lived up to the hype with a chic ambience and warm atmosphere matched with delicious hors d’oeuvres and desserts. A DJ kept the mood light and drink tickets made for a no-fuss evening at the bar.
At the end of the night, everyone received gift bags with tech-related goodies from sponsors including a 30-day trial of Adobe Technical Communication Suite 4, some Co Co Sala chocolates, and a pad of “buzzworthy” sticky notes from the Beekeeper Group. A lucky few also won raffle prizes like the Adobe Technical Communication Suite 4, an Amazon Kindle Fire HD, a UXPA DC lunch box, and much more. (Sadly, I was not one of the winners.)
