At Brightcove's Boston office, we're eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring (though, the snow this morning was discouraging). As we wait for the season to bloom, we're excited about several upcoming events that will help take our minds off of the wintery weather. If you too need an "escape" from the frost, come on down to Congress Street for one of this month's tech meetups.
