The Austin Web Bash 2016


Every year, Refresh Austin hosts the Austin Web Bash, or #AWBASH, to bring Austin’s web and tech meetups together under one roof to celebrate the end of the year.


An RSVP on meetup does not RSVP you for the event, you must RSVP on Eventbrite.

2016 Benefited Nonprofit: ChickTech


This year, we are raising funds for ChickTech Austin, a nonprofit dedicated to retaining women in the technology workforce and increasing the number of women and girls pursuing technology-based careers. All ticket sales will go straight to supporting ChickTech Austin.
