What we're about
Proudly one of the very few meetups that is hosted every week. We never give up! Now extended by an hour! Zoom link in the comments and sidebar.
A disclaimer to people who are joining for the first time. Our conversations can become quite rowdy sometimes going off-topic. We are one of the more interesting meetups on this site. Attendance discretion is advised. Loosen up and have fun with us!
Do you want to socialize with like minded and also completely differently minded people? You want to discuss difficult topics in philosophy or politics? Or do you want to chat about current affairs and how it's affecting us? Do you want someone to review your poetry or your blog post? Or do you want someone to help you on your next computing project? Do you have a hobby you want to share or perhaps talk about something you're passionate about? You want to meet new friends or do some networking? Do you crave a good conversation or perhaps sharing some insipid jokes? Everything is allowed!
Bring whatever you like whether it's just some pen and paper or your laptop workstation. Be prepared to show off, explain and share your ideas. Otherwise, you're free to silently work on whatever project you like.
Research has shown that social settings tend to increase creativity and productivity. Learn from others and have new ideas brought to you. Maybe it will change your perspective and convince you to change your mind on something you're so passionate about.
People of different backgrounds have joined our past meetups from software developers to security experts to nuclear consultants and even a fashion and soft-core porn photographer!
We are proudly the most freeform meetup group out there. We don't have boring talks or suggested subjects. Our past meetups have shown us how much people enjoy conversation and going off topic was so regular that the initial plan lost its purpose.
Until the pandemic ends, our meetups will be hosted online via Zoom. We know that one-on-one conversations can be hard for now but you could always move off Zoom onto another platform like Discord to have a more intimate conversation.
