I’m organizing another Seattle Net Tuesday social mixer, and this one will match mobile technology specialists with the nonprofits who need their skills. This “speed dating” event will happen 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., on Tuesday, Sept. 28, at the Tap House Grill in Bellevue. The goal is to help nonprofits to find volunteers to develop mobile Websites and mobile apps for iPhones and Droids. If you are a developer, then this is an effective way to build your startup’s reputation and boost its portfolio!
