SXSW Create Tweet Up

Makers and developers – get your Twitter accounts ready for our tweet up at South by Southwest (SXSW) Create! We are working with our friends from Make Magazine to host a tweet up at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 8 at our SXSW Create booth at the Long Center for the Performing Arts

Share your latest projects and get your questions answered by TIers and a few other experts, including Gerard Sequeira of, and Matt Richardson and Mike Senese of Make Magazine during our tweet up! To sweeten the deal, we’ll have some sweet treats from Austin’s Hey Cupcake!, TI t-shirts, coffee mugs and a few deals on MCU products available for attendees!

While you’re at SXSW Create, show off your flying machine at Make Magazine’s Homegrown Drones event! They’ll be hosting an open-fly session in front of the Long Center each day of the show from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., so bring your homegrown drone and help take over the sky. Stop by the Make booth for flight check-in!
