While preparing for the next release of NI mate, I thought I’d take a bit of time to write up about the coming US trip. I will start the trip from the (in)famous South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. This year SXSW runs from the 8th to the 17th of March, with the trade fair running from the 10th to the 13th at the Austin Convention Center. Just as last year, we’ll be sharing some tables with other cool Finnish startups. If you’re around Austin during those days, do come check out some demos of both NI mate and our upcoming VJ software (codenamed “The V” for now). Even if you’re not officially taking part in South by Southwest, do get in touch and we can meet for some of that awesome Texan barbeque.
After Austin, I’ll take a week off to move my base of operations to San Francisco, California where we’ll be having a table for presenting NI mate at Game Connection America. This year the event is running in parallel with the Game Developers Conference in which we had a stand presence last year (and are still looking at this year as well). I think in the end you will be able to catch me at both events. In any case if you’re around San Francisco from the 24th to to the 29th of March, do get in touch so we can meet up!
During the in-between days I will be doing a slow road trip towards the west coast. If you live or work somewhere along the trail and would like to meet up (for business or beer – or both), don’t hesitate to get in contact! To end this post, here’s a pic from last year’s SXSW trade show when I got to show off NI mate on Austin’s local KEYE TV:
