New Parents in Tech Meetup

It's tough out there for a parent, especially one in an industry moving as fast as technology. How do you keep up with thought leaders on twitter, write blog posts, and try out the latest software when you're juggling pediatrician appointments, fun mind-expanding toddler activities, or just a baby that wants to be constantly held? Just because you have a bundle of joy doesn't mean you have to put your career on hold, and at this meetup you'll get tips, tricks, and hard fought strategies from fellow tech parents on how they've kept baby happily in a corner, at least long enough for a compile.
