Thank you!

Hi all! I'm looking for recommendations for any THATcamp or similar informal events coming up in the Austin area. They don't have to be digital humanities focused—that's just the only event I can think of at the moment.

I work [remotely] for the Harvard Open Access Project in Boston currently, but I split my time between Austin and Boston because my partner and our apartment actually live/work in ATX. 🙂 Just hoping to start expanding my professional network down here! Thanks in advance. Happy to have found this group!
