The Santa Ynez Valley Tech Club, which intends to raise the profile of tech activity in the area, will sponsor a “tech mixer” featuring two high-profile local entrepreneurs on Oct. 3 in Solvang.

Ron Gans, the chief technical officer of the cloud-based technology company Observables, will speak on “Agile Development and Bringing Product to Market.”

David Baeza will address “Trends in Technology, Hype from Reality. How it will impact you and your business.”

Those interested can learn from the speakers and network with fellow technophiles from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Hotel Corque, 400 Alisal Road in Solvang. The cost of $15 includes food and drink. Tickets will be sold at the door.
