• Astoria Tech Meetup #13 - NYC Mesh: Building a Neighborhood Network

    Hey Astorians! Our 13th (spooky~ 👻) monthly meetup is coming up at our usual time and place! It's just a couple short blocks from Broadway station, so if tech interests you in any way, come on by. For our talk this month, we’re excited to welcome NYC Mesh organizer Jillian Murphy! NYC Mesh is a local volunteer organization (like us!) dedicated to building, expanding, and maintaining a community-run & community-owned network. Those who’ve been to the previous meetups know that we’ve been planning/talking about building our own network out here in Astoria, so the talk will be especially informative for us. And as usual, after the talk, we'll go discuss our ongoing community initiatives (which are usually web apps). Volunteers with any kinds of skills are always welcome; our resident experts will bring you up to speed. So come use that pre-Halloween energy to be productive and have fun at the same time! AGENDA: 6:30 - 7:15: Open discussions (submit & view topics online*) 7:15 - 7:45: "NYC Mesh: Building a Neighborhood Network" by Jillian Murphy 7:45 - 8:30: Community project planning * Members of our community built our discussion web app, which allows anyone to submit topics that they'd like to discuss during the first part of the meetup. Feel free to submit any tech or tech-adjacent topics: https://discuss.astoria.app
