For the uninitiated: DCWEEK is a week long festival in the US capitol focused on bringing together designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and social innovators of all kinds. It’s a series of 100s of distributed events powered by the community and complimented by core conferences, parties, and projects created by the festival organizers iStrategyLabs and Tech Cocktail. DCWEEK 2011 included over 10,000 attendees from around the world and was presented by Ford. Join the twitter conversation #DCWEEK.
The DCWEEK Opening Party is one of the key networking events that happens during this festival. This year they took over Penn Social – a cavernous playground that included skeeball, airhocky and 3 open bars for all thirsty DCWEEKers.
