Event: Santa Maria Tech Brew

Location: Moxie Cafe, 1317 West McCoy Lane, Santa Maria, CA 93455

Tom Kosta’s Tech Talk

“Pest Control by Remote Control” 

Tom will talk about the project that evolved into this amazing pest control device. It is a great engineering story about the evolution of a solution to a real pest of a problem. Tom’s solution might be a little over the top but if you are a Geek or Maker you will appreciate the process that got him there. Tom is the engineering genius behind Peak WiFi a very large scale WiFi network serving most of southern San Luis Obispo County. If you missed Tom’s meeting in SLO it is well worth the trip to see this impressive technology. If you have challenges in pest control over a large area this is a very cool technology with great potential.
Tom’s presentation in SLO was talked about for months because of the buzz it created and as we all know buzz is the first step in a Softec Moment. If you miss this Tech Brew you will regret it.

About our Santa Maria Location
The Moxie Cafe has been great as a partner in helping Softec bring Tech Brew to the Santa Maria Valley.
If you have never been to the Moxie Cafe you really need to check it out. They have a commitment to proving tasty, fresh, and healthy choices. This means less guilt from the frequent trips to the snack table at the event.
I have dined at the Moxie Cafe several times and have never been disappointed and my personal favorite is the Tri-Tip Sandwich but the menu is very extensive and healthy.
Moxie is Well Connected 
We are Softec, lead by Geeks, Entrepreneurs, and Makers so connectivity was on the top of our checklist of the things we need for our location and the Moxie delivered on that. They provide free WiFi and wired internet connections throughout the Moxie. They invite you to find a quiet spot(good luck with this at a Tech Brew!) to surf the internet or get some work done. There are numerous USB charging stations and multiple monitors in the meeting room. Moxie really thought through the tech needed to serve the Softec Group.
