Some stats on the DevelopersDevelopersDevelopersDevelopers Event

Last week, thoughtbot and GreenhornConnect announced their event for student developers & designers:

The goal of the event is to educate these students on why they should work at a startup, what they need to know that they may not learn in school and what opportunities are available in Boston.  We’re bringing in some awesome speakers like Angus Davis of Swipely, Dharmesh Shah of HubSpot and John Resig, creator of jQuery.

Of course, the day would not be complete without introducing them to great startup opportunities, so we’ll also have time at the end for students to meet with a select group of startups looking to hire them as interns or full time hires.

If you’re interested in being one of the companies to meet these students, you can sign up here:
