#NOEW2018 Summit is here! Join us at @cacnola for 2 days of entrepreneurship and startups! Click the link in our profile to learn more about the @hellonoew sessions our LookFarians are speaking on. 🎤
Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, Ethereum… by now you’ve probably heard of this craze, but do you understand the technology that makes it all possible? 
It’s called blockchain, and it has the potential to fundamentally change the way we do business. 
Join us at #NOEW2018 on Friday 3/23 at 9:30am for Blockchain 101: It’s Not Just Cryptocurrency. 
Our Lead Engineer Ken Gaulter will explain what blockchain is and share ways that companies can utilize blockchain technology to grow their businesses. Learn more & register to attend this free session via the link in our profile!
New Orleans Entrepreneur Week is finally here, and we couldn’t be more excited! 
We love attending local festivals, but we also love creating software to help event organizers engage attendees before, during, and after their events. We’ve developed software integrations and built mobile apps for events like @hellonoew, @lunafete, and @jazzandheritagefoundation’s Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival. 
Head to the link in our profile to read our latest blog post, “3 Ways to Build & Track Attendee Engagement with an Event App,” and be be sure to RSVP for our upcoming #NOEW2018 sessions!

Our LookFarians took some time away from their keyboards today to bid farewell to @butterpunk. 🚘 His final request before setting off on a cross-country adventure was a team “meating” at @blueoakbbq. 🍖🥩🥓 We wish you all the best in your next endeavors, Blake!
Happy International Women's Day! To celebrate, we reached out to our past Ada Lovelace Award nominees to share with us what being a woman in tech means to them. 👩🏿‍💻👩🏼‍💻👩🏾‍💻 Here’s just one of their responses, from 2017 Ada nominee Élan Jones, who is the Executive Director of @nolacode504, which teaches the principles behind computer science and engineering to students across New Orleans. Her organization preaches that “Computer literacy is literacy” and she believes that “If you’re a woman, then you’re a woman in tech. If you’re a woman who’s ever used a hot comb, a chain saw, electricity, or a clap on light fixture, then you’re a woman in tech. Lemme find out someone’s tryinna tell you otherwise.” 👏🏽👏🏻👏🏿👏🏼👏🏾 Click the link in our profile to read more from 20+ incredible #womenintech!
Clean desk, happy desk. 💻 We’d show you the “before” version of @animatedgeoff’s workspace, but trust us, no one wanted to see that. 😂
