Fun stuff 2019

This year, along with sizzling street tacos from Tacos El Unico, delectable vegetarian and vegan munchies from The French Gourmet, and specially designed cocktails by Snake Oil, we also have fun activities for you to check out….

Explore the Museum
The Museum’s exhibits are included in your ticket so be sure to catch Cannibals (usually $16) and & Post-Secret (June’s favorite). You’re invited to take a moment to contribute your own deepest secret to the collection.

Let magic fingers work out the stress of your work day so that your super chill self can come out to play. Work Flow Massage will be giving free chair massages tailored to long hours of programming, or other computer-based activities.

Win at sports 🙌
Pilot your soccer playing robot to sweet victory using Busylabs’ open source, 3-D printed robots. Bringing affordable STEM education to schools is Busylabs’ gooooaaalll!

Explore the future of AI 🤖
Check out Brain Corp’s self-driving AI robot which will be cleaning up your beer spills.

Introvert a bit
Take a break from the hubbub and enjoy a starlit view of Balboa park from the Starlight patio 🌃

Take your new friends home with you 📸
Pose with your geeky buddies in our photo booth, and the lovely folks at DoWhop will print you a copy to take home with you.

So much to do and see! We’ll be sending you a map with all of these activities and with all of our awesome exhibitors so that you can make a plan before Wednesday.

March Mingle – Need to Know

March Minglers!

March Mingle is SOLD OUT once again! Tickets can no longer be purchased online. Limited tickets will be available at the door for $30 depending on venue capacity.

Just reminding you all that we will be kicking off March Mingle at 7pm 3/26/2017 at Total Combat Paintball.

The event will be chock-full of cool stuff to see, and people to meet. Thanks to your enthusiasm for San Diego’s technical and startup community, tickets are sold out.

Special thanks to our Gold Sponsor VIA Technical, and to our Silver Sponsors Veyo, MJD Interactive, Startup San Diego, and MindCentric for making March Mingle a reality.

This is the most geeky entertainment we’ve ever fit into a March Mingle…

  • 4 virtual reality booths to play in, to the right of the registration table.
  • Flying robots! See Robolink’s programmable drone platform next to the beer bar.
  • Make your own LED glowie with the nice folks at the San Diego Maker’s Guild.
  • Print a photo booth picture with your buddies thanks to the lovely ladies at VIA Technical.
  • Check out Richard’s light painting demo.
  • Hit up our sushi chefs for some fresh nigiri and rolls.

On the slightly more serious side…

If you’re looking for a job, VIA Technical is your one stop shop. Sponsors MJD Interactive, HouseCall, and Veyo are full of excellent people and are looking to hire more.

If you’re a budding entrepreneur, talk to The Vine about office space, see what StartupSD has in store for Startup Week, and get the best hands-on start for your business idea by attending Startup Weekend in July.

If you’re considering embarking on a technical career, seek out Learn Academy who can train you to be a web developer in 4 months.

To learn new technical skills, talk to the Geek Girls about Geek Girl Tech Con in June. And ladies are invited to RailsBridge, a one-day workshop to learn Ruby on Rails.

…and that’s just for starters. Check out our venue layout and Twitter stream for more. There will be a lot to take in, so make a plan!

Drinks
We’re streamlining drink ordering this year. First, use cash or credit card to buy drink tickets. Then hit up the beer bar or the cocktail bar depending on your preference. Here’s a map. Craft beers are $7, cocktails are $8.

Paintball
We’re not all that sorry to say that March Mingle has nothing to do with paintballing, though you can pick up a coupon for Total Combat Paintball at one of the bars. It reduces the cost from $45 to $21.99 to play, so come back and check it out another time.

Transport
There is lots of street parking around the venue, but we strongly encourage that you leave your sweet ride at home and use Lyft or Uber Pool to pick up some geeky friends on the way.

Food
Your senses are unlikely to let you miss our fresh sushi bar. We’ll also have appetizers to suit other diets near the VR booths.

Social
Tweeps and sharers, please use hashtags #MM2017, #sdtech and #startupSD. We encourage you to upload photos of you and your new friends to Flickr or Instagram using #MarchMingle. Follow us on Twitter at @MarchMingle for live event updates.

Ticket
No need to print your ticket. We will scan the QR code from your phone, or look you up by name.

Dress Code
A dress code, there is not.

After Party
The good times will continue after 10pm a short ride away at El Dorado Cocktail Lounge.

And don’t forget…

This community belongs to all of you; March Mingle is a great opportunity to foster collaboration and find out where your community needs you. You are the people who make the San Diego tech scene something we can all be proud of.

We look forward to seeing you at March Mingle!

Your Organizers,
