Resolve to “Ship It!”

Remember that great idea you had in 2010? The one you didn’t have time to work on? That book you haven’t started brainstorming. That iPhone application you haven’t started writing. That new programming language you want to learn.

We want you to make 2011 the year you make it real, put pen to paper, and burn the midnight oil. Make 2011 the year you ship it*, and make the next Refresh the date you launch your project! You’ll be in good company.

Don’t have a project in the works for 2011? That’s OK. Bring with you a story to tell – a great book you read, a great conversation you had, a new perspective. Everyone will get 5 minutes to present – no projectors. Well, OK, if you want to hold your laptop above your head, you can use it to present a picture or two.

Guaranteed to be in attendance will be veteran Refreshers Gannon Beck, Corey Brown, Aaron Collegeman and others. They’ll kick off our session by sharing with you the progress they made on their own projects in 2010, and the projects they’re planning for 2011!

  1. I have a class that conflicts with coming to Refresh for the next 2-3 mtgs. This sounds like such an AMAZING one, though! Ohman, ohman! My secret 2011 plans need to percolate a while longer anyway (not ready for primetime.) I hope to see some blogs about what everyone is working on, though!! 🙂

    Hey, I just found out about this. Sounds interesting but everyone seems to schedule meetings on the first and third weeks of each month. Any chance to move it to the second week of the month? Or a second meeting each month covering the same topic for those that cannot make it?
    Thanks.

    Hi Flyinfmj,

    We’re not able to move the date, but we do shoot video for some of the events. Also, we’re gearing up to chat about the events before and after on the Refresh Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/refreshwinchester . Hope you’re able to make it some time.
