"The city of Burlington, Vermont, also has a promising future as a tech hub. Ranked 38th in the nation on Lumosity’s recent ‘100 smartest cities’ report, it is the community itself that we find so promising. There are active, overlapping networks in Burlington both physically and in virtual space.
The BTV Web App Group meets several times a month for presentations and networking. Laboratory B, the local hackerspace, holds regular events. The sustainability-focused Green Drinks meets twice monthly, once in Burlington and one in Montpelier. CodeForBTV, a civic hacking group that meets weekly, enjoys support from Code for America, and they’ve produced several improvements to local systems and organizations. The meetup group Burlington Net Squared also hosts regular meetups that cover many different tech angles. Tech Jam Vermont is a well-attended annual event sponsored by Dealer.com, which is headquartered in Burlington."
