Happy Grep-a-palooza Day!

We're sorry we're not sorry that there's no "regular" GrepBeat newsletter today. We've been pouring our heart, soul and keyboard fingers into making today's inaugural Grep-a-palooza a success.

If you're reading this while at the Durham Convention Center, we're so glad you've joined us! Now please put your phone down and focus on the great programming and even more valuable networking.

If you're not here, you may still have time to join the fun. Everyone is welcome to attend today's Grep-a-palooza After-Party, which is at Bull McCabe's in downtown Durham starting at 4 p.m.

Though while we have you here, here are a few quick programming announcements:

– Tomorrow's Friday Nooner welcomes guest Kelly Pfrommer, the CEO of Cloud Giants and, just last month, the first subject of our new HERstory Q&A series. You can watch live at noon on LinkedIn, Facebook or YouTube, or catch it afterwards on those platforms or in podcast form.

– We did publish one new story yesterday: Looking For Kid-Friendly Activities This Weekend? Check ZuZu For Kids. It's about Raleigh-based startup ZuZu For Kids, which is participating in this summer's Andrews Launch Accelerator at NC State.

Until we see you at Bull McCabe's, here are a few pictures from this morning:
Here's the Opening Keynote with Pendo CEO Todd Olson chatting with Pete. The slide features two of the (awesome) cakes that Pete has baked and decorated for GrepBeat, because it turns out Todd is an expert baker.
We're excited to be one of the first large in-person events coming out of the pandemic. Our attendees seemed happy to see and be seen.

Guess where Pete is and (maybe) win a GrepBeat mug!*

Jamie Jones is this week’s winner for correctly identifying my location as Liturgy Beverage Company in the Durham Food Hall. Here’s what she has to see for (well, about) herself: “Jamie is a lover of all things Durham, bicycles, and craft beer. While she wishes she could get paid to ride her bike around the Triangle in search of the best biscuit, her actual job is cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset and skillset in as many Duke students as possible in her role as Director of Duke Innovation and Entrepreneurship.” Jamie would have been at Grep-a-palooza if she hadn’t been heading on vacation. Hey, we understand.
