Something is happening in the city of Chicago. Lots of somethings. So many somethings that it is difficult to keep track of them all.

You can go to Built In Chicago and and Eventbrite and Lanyrd and follow the right people on Twitter, and try to stay on top of it all.

Or you can just come here or subscribe to Chicago Tech Events Weekly.

The mission here is to be the best place to find out about all the great web, digital and startup events happening in the city. The events are curated every week by me, Chicago Web Developer John Polacek. When I am not posting events here, I work as Lead Web Developer at Gesture, creating technology like mobile bidding to help charities raise more money at their fundraising events. If you are a nonprofit and want to find out how to use technology and the team at Gesture to take your events to the next level, click here to get in touch.
