Excited for Thursday night's meetup the Net2 Google Hangout experiment. The hangout will be streaming live at 7:30 but come along around 7 for nibbles, tea and coffee. Our Auckland speaker, Will Watterson, will kick us off around 7:15 for a short presentation before our Hangout with Adelaide, Melbourne and Wellington.
Keen to see you all there. Bring colleagues, friends and partners :)
In November, NetSquared groups in Adelaide, Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington will be teaming up for the first “NetSquared Camp: Downunder.”
NetSquared Camp: Downunder will be a live event with a difference. Each city will host a presenter who will be live-streamed online with Google Hangouts with audiences in all four cities tuning in.
What is a NetSquared Camp?
NetSquared Camps are designed to bring people together to collaborate on projects. Our project? A regional meetup using online streaming and tools we have on hand. Not only will it be a good test to see if our tech manages, but it will be a great way to meet people from meetups in other cities.
