Our debut meetup will feature speakers from:
- Effective Altruism Sydney (Neil Ferro)
- Solar Analytics (Rachel Bunder)
- Grok learning plus Girls Programming Network (Renee Noble)
- Folo/Pure Foundation (Sam Adams Nye)
to discuss how programmers can create positive social impact through their work.
After we hear some stories/talks from them, we'll have a panel discussion covering audience Q&A about social impact.
The meetup will conclude with a discussion about how we can best work together going forward. Several people have flagged the idea of evening mini-hackathons where we. get together to work on high impact projects. If you have a project that needs help, come along and pitch your idea.
We're grateful to have the support of EnergyLab who are letting us have the meetup at their excellent venue.
