Events Roundup is a column in which we highlight events happening in the D.C. area each month. Got a submission? Email us at so we can consider it for our next roundup.’s annual Super Meetup is returning on Thursday, Aug. 13 at 4 p.m. — but with a twist: The event will be virtual and feature trivia.

Each year, Super Meetup gathers active technical groups, companies and people. Think of it as the ultimate meetup of meetups. For 2020’s event, attendees can expect to see lighting talks, hear shoutouts from meetup organizers, battle it out in trivia (think computer history, internet culture and local tech community facts) and hear some stories from people on their company cultures.


Super Meetup 2020 is Software Day of the virtual Summer Series of Philly Tech Week 2020 presented by Comcast.
