August NE:Tech meetup

We've been away for a few months, some might say "isolating". We hope you're all safe and well. Over the past few months we've talked long and hard about hosting our meetups online. The ethos of NE:Tech has always been about that face-to-face social interaction that becomes impossible when we're all remote. This has been the key driver in cancelling our monthly events until recently. This month we have Phil Johnson take to the stage to talk about integrating a Chatbot into Facebook Messenger.

With community in mind, this meetup will be hosted on Zoom. The link to the meetup is included in this invite. We're also maintaining a Discord community in a "drop-in drop-out" capacity on Discord, feel free to join us for a chat whenever you feel the urge. In these remote times we hope this offers a safe space for us talk tech.

Please welcome your speaker:

Phil Johnson
Lead Frontend software engineer @ BGL
