Technical.ly’s mission is focused on bringing communities together. The same could be said of Meetup. But how do you get all of a city’s niche tech meetups together in one place for one purpose? You create a Super Meetup.
The idea of the Super Meetup is simple: Meetup groups are integral to any tech scene. Every now and then, it makes sense to rally the leaders of a city’s tech-related meetups and gather for one big mixer. It’s a chance to make new friends, forge new connections and see who’s working on cool stuff.
Super Meetup goes down Wednesday, Aug. 2, from 6–9 p.m. at Work & Co’s gorgeous office space located at 231 Front St.
“Meetups are a defining part of New York’s tech community,” said Work & Co Principal Developer Fernando Andrade. “Connecting with new people and gaining fresh perspectives and approaches is super valuable.”
Here’s who you can mingle with on Wednesday:

“The Brooklyn Futurist Meetup is where we discuss what the world might look like in ten years or more. Speakers explore trends with transformative potential… or ones that are just fascinating. Our events usually run in Brooklyn or Manhattan where most members work or live. Topics are not Brooklyn-focused. They are open to attendees and speakers from anywhere. This is America’s largest future-focused meetup with 4,700+ members and in the top 5 globally. We also run a global network of future-focused meetups with tens of thousands more like-minded members in cities like Stockholm, Bangalore, London, Berlin and Singapore. Contact the organizer for details.”
