Relay FM Meetup at the App Camp for Girls Fundraiser

As you may know, Relay FM is hosting a meetup at WWDC this year, but our tickets sold out really quickly. But for those of you that may have missed out, we have some great news!

We are working with women@wwdc and James Dempsey and the Breakpoints to host a mini Relay FM meetup at their App Camp for Girls benefit on Wednesday, June 7.

At this event there will be a special Relay FM meet-and-greet section inside the venue. So grab your tickets now, and be sure to get there at 7 PM to meet up with fellow listeners and some of your favorite Relay FM hosts.

All proceeds for this event will go to App Camp For Girls, a non-profit educational program for girls, transgender, non-binary and underrepresented genders in technology.

At App Camp For Girls, aspiring developers brainstorm, design, code, and pitch an iPhone app in one week, while being inspired by role models in the tech industry.

Doors open at 7 PM for the women@wwdc cocktail hour with plenty of time to meet and mingle. Then music starts at 8:30 when James Dempsey and the Breakpoints take the stage to perform a full concert of humorous nerdy songs including favorites from their #5 Billboard-charting comedy album, Backtrace.

We want to support this amazing cause to help them meet their goal of raising $35,000 to support App Camp For Girls at this event. Your generous donation will go directly toward funding this year's programming and future growth.

This event is open to all ages. To consume alcohol at the event, you must be over 21.

Find out more and grab your tickets now. We look forward to seeing you there!

Today, we are happy to announce the newest Relay FM podcast, Download.

The truth is there are way too many tech stories to keep up with each week. That's where Download comes in. Here's the idea:

What are the most important technology stories right now? From products and companies to services and trends, Download’s weekly panel of experts analyzes the biggest topics in tech ... and a few you may have missed.
