Tablecraft invited to UCF’s National Academy of Inventors’ Gala

Al么,聽Al么, it’s me, Rafael, straight from the grant writing trenches. Guillaume and I have lots of exciting news to share, but we’ll save most of it for the upcoming podcast episode. 馃槈 In the meantime, however, I’d like to announce that we’ll be showcasing Tablecraft at the聽UCF Chapter of the National Academy of Inventors’ Third Annual Gala and Induction Ceremony on November 15th, which is exciting but also kinda weird.

The Gala is essentially a fancy cocktail reception and dinner where researchers and inventors discuss their latest discoveries and innovations. This is how I imagine it’ll go:

“Oh and we have a Discord channel too, you should check it out.”

Anyway, we’re super excited to get to meet all these incredibly talented scientists and researchers working to solve big problems. Even though our work is silly in comparison, I’d like to think we share similar values, so hopefully Guillaume and I will manage to blend right in without seeming too suspicious. 馃槈
