Share to Learn is a community dedicated to informal yet informative learning. It’s a space for individuals curious about learning interesting topics in a structured yet laid back atmosphere. Share to Learn events are centered around two 20-25 minute “mini lectures” with short Q&A’s following. These topics will may be presented by hobbyists, professionals, or simply someone who has a lot of passion to share knowledge. You’ll know the lecture topics before you sign up to attend.
