At the February 2010 BASHH in Austin, we decided to try a little experiment and offer color coded stickers to add to your nametags and BOY were they popular! You could see fellow Texans or cat haters from across the room and there were a lot of pictures taken of the stickers themselves (like the one above by @springnet).

Last month, stickers said “I’m single,” “Born in Texas,” “I speak LOLcat,” “I hate cats,” “BASHH newbie” and more. This month, when we hand write the thousands of stickers, we want to make sure we cover our bases, so tell us in comments what stickers YOU think should be offered (and try to keep it clean).

There are over 1200 people already RSVPd to BASHH, so if your friends are coming in from out of town, make sure they RSVP so they can get in the door for zeroty dollars!

BASHH Event

BASHH is back at Austin Beerworks this month!

BASHH is goin’ down in a brewery up North, so there’s free parking and a food truck to go with the updated BASHH vibe!

Published

In January of 2020, COVID wasn’t yet considered a pandemic, and we cancelled BASHH. We got a LOT of hate mail about it. We were accused of overreacting. The rest is history.

We’ve gotten a lot of feedback from y’all and we hear you loud and clear – you want BASHH back.

We’ll follow whatever the current requirements are at the time, and if things get to wild, we’ll cancel, but as it stands now, we’re ready to rock and roll.

This last year or so has been extremely difficult – we’ve all lost people we care about, we have all had to adjust our lives, and while online is amazing, there’s still something about kicking back with a drink and some fellow nerds.

To mark a new era, we’re trading in the posh downtown venues for the more laid back brewery environment. Our foray back into the offline world will be at Austin Beerworks (which y’all have NO idea how pumped we are about that, we’re huge fans)! We hosted there in August and it was very chill, just perfect for our bunch.

There will be FREE PARKING. That’ll be nice.

There will be a FOOD TRUCK. That’ll be nice.

There will be BEER. That’ll be nice.

If you have questions, we invite them any time. And we’ll see you in August!

Why you don’t have to pay to attend the next BASHH

BASHH doesn’t charge attendees which blows minds – here’s why we do it that way AND how.

Big Ass Social Happy Hour August

This will be our first BASHH since before the pandemic hit and we’re just as nervous as you are, but let’s do this!

We got an email yesterday from someone upset that they couldn’t buy tickets. The idea that it is a free event didn’t make sense to them. There was no “buy” button, and that can’t be right!

But it’s true – for nearly a decade and a half, we’ve pulled this event off without charging attendees. Why do we do that? Because this event is our love letter to Austin, a way to bring the community together. Sometimes even $10 can be restrictive for some people – gas money may already be a challenge for some. We may charge some day, but we’ve been able to avoid that because of companies that want to support BASHH, to support you, to MEET you.

That’s why we sincerely ask you to check out our sponsors for the next BASHH.

Click to learn more about them – they deserve it for supporting this event and keeping it free to you!


Vultr $50 credit offer

Are you starting to think that Big Tech clouds are overpriced and overcomplicated?

Find a cloud partner who provides better margins, with less complexity.

As companies begin the transition to migrate to hybrid cloud, they are faced with complex decisions about choosing a strategic cloud partner who is able to support their continued growth at an affordable cost. Buyers are more educated now than ever about what technology they need to scale their business, and value a partner who is invested in supporting their growth.

At Vultr, the largest privately-owned Global Hyperscale cloud provider supporting over 1.3 million customers, we believe developers and businesses should feel the freedom of the cloud, and should be empowered to do what they do best: develop and build a company. We take care of the infrastructure work and let you do the rest.

When evaluating your cloud partner, it’s important to assess if a partner not only meets your technical requirements but can commit the time and resources to help your company scale. However, with scale, comes increased cloud computing costs at a rate you probably weren’t expecting. The cause? Hidden bandwidth costs which may seem trivial but they can add up exponentially.

Vultr is a founder-owned and bootstrapped business so an important key differentiator for us is our focus on Infrastructure vs. Bandwidth; our customers are not subject to punitive and unnecessary network utilization charges. We continue to focus on building Enterprise grade cloud infrastructure that is easy-to-use, well-documented,scalable, cost-effective, and we make the right decisions for customers and support our clients’ continued growth.

Join Vultr today and gain better performance, have lower operational costs, and access to a greater global reach for all your raw cloud infrastructure needs.
