Dynamo Block Party
Join us for the Dynamo Block Party -- the first meeting of its kind where several user groups across the country congregate virtually!

This is an excellent opportunity to meet others with a shared passion for Dynamo and design technology, see how their groups are organized, and be exposed to work happening outside the local community. Learn how folks in San Francisco, Denver, Des Moines, and New York City are making the most out of the expanded capabilities Dynamo provides. With 5 meetings in 1, this is one you don't want to miss.

When: April 18, 2017
Where: BSA Space - Boston
