CELUG/EDAC Evening Networking Event at DAC 2017, sponsored by Flexera

Published by:

All aboard!  On Wednesday after the conference, we will board busses to take us to the shores of Lady Bird Lake where we will board The Lone Star Riverboat to take a cruise around Austin.  And this year, we actually will set sail! (Last year, the river current was too swift for us to leave dock).  The ship offers a covered lower deck with air conditioning and an uncovered upper deck for viewing the famous Austin bats on the Congress Street Bridge.

This is a great opportunity for you to network with the conference goers and go into more depth on topics you heard about during the day.  The open atmosphere lets you engage many different people in an intimate atmosphere, without being stuck in the same seat all night as in a traditional sit-down dinner.

All attendees are invited.  Dinner will be Texas Barbecue (brisket, chicken and sausage).  Vegetarian options will be available.  Beer and wine will be served.

Special thanks to our event sponsor for this evening, Flexera Software!

Energized by what you heard on the first day of the Conference?  Ready to continue the discussion in a more casual atmosphere?  No problem!

Thanks to National Instruments for sponsoring an after first day happy hour!  The happy hour will begin at 5:30 and go to 8:00.  Drinks and heavy hours d’ourves will be served.  Don’t be fooled, it may say “dive” in the name, but this is a great place.  http://www.maxswinedive.com.

For those of you who are party animals, you won’t want to miss the big Cadence Denali Party at the Palm Door on Sixth.

2017 CELUG Co-Located Conference at DAC

2017 CELUG Member’s Only Dinner at Banger’s in Austin

Published by:


Come and enjoy some great sausage and beer in this uniquely Austin establishment!  CELUG Members can gather the night before the conference to chat, catch up or introduce themselves before the festivities begin on Tuesday.  You’ll probably want to bring some comfortable attire, as this will be an outdoor seating arrangement in Texas.  Lots of locals (and their dogs!) like to come here for some good food, music and beer.  Vegetarian options are available.
