Welcome to the RDM, the meetup for who is interested in Research and Development with a practical and community shared pinch of salt.
This will be the RDM #1, our agenda is to discuss a plan and a format of how we can create a community of people interested in what is considered 'bleeding edge' in IT. If you are into AI, Cryptography, P2P, Distributed File Systems, New Web Technologies, Internet Infrastructure, Privacy, Security, CryptoCurrencies and Blockchain, than this meetup is for you too.
R&D has been historically performed by a small group of people that are fortunate to be in a company or research lab, where they can invest time exploring what are the latest tech, engineering ( or reengineering) solutions, from the ground up, that will be able create whole new areas of research and/or business opportunities. This meetup seeks to create an environment where enthusiasts can get together, share their interests and tag team with people with similar interests to perform research (and hacking :)) and publish materials that can be used by others.
You just have to show up :)
