Everyone attends meetups for different reasons, and if you have no idea what a “meetup” is, this definition from Meetup.com really brings it together…
“Getting together with real people in real life makes powerful things happen. Side hustles become careers, ideas become movements, and chance encounters become lifelong connections. Meetup brings people together to create thriving communities.” – Meetup.com | https://www.meetup.com/about/
When I knew I wanted to meet new people who worked in Tech, one suggestion was to attend meetups in Philadelphia. I lived in the suburbs and worked in the city, so this made sense. I was amazed by people who not only used their free time to attend meetups, but also the people who plan, organize, present, share, answer questions, and then work a full-time job that may or may not be related to their meetup topic. So I decided to give it a try. Now we have Coffee & Pi!
