What we're about

What is this about?

This meetup intends to provide social networking for computer systems networking professionals in an open, vendor neutral (non-denominationl) setting. Vendor specific user groups fracture the professional population and stifle discussions that incorporate heterogeneous solutions. This meetup should allow for us networking professionals to swap stories, information, and practices (best or not!) in today's exciting and rapidly changing physical and virtual environments.

Join us for happy hour with technology presentations and commiserate/celebrate with other systems networking enthusiasts.

Who should join?

Anyone who is currently working in the networking profession - routing, switching, wireless, security, datacenter, application delivery, cloud, automation, systems, virtualization

Why is this group different?

Whether you're a staunch fan of Open Source Systems/Software, Cisco, Microsoft, Citrix, F5, Palo Alto, Arista, Juniper, VMWare, RedHat, or a myriad of others, we invariably interact with and support a combination of many vendors and providers. Let us create a community where any networking technologies can be discussed.

We are focused on building a community for and by engineers. We will be policing speakers, content, events, etc to ensure where there is bias and influence, it is minimal and transparent. Above all this group intends to educate and build relationships between engineers and NOT be a sales channel for vendors.

Leadership is focused on these goals and welcomes feedback from the community to shape events, guests, and sponsors.
