It’s nearly here, folks: Technical.ly’s reimagined Super Meetup is happening this Thursday, Aug. 13.
We’ve hosted a version of this event since 2015, in person and with dozens of meetups and hundreds of attendees across our four markets (see our recap from Philly’s 2019 event). Clearly, that isn’t working during a pandemic.
This year, our tech-focused meetup of meetups is not only virtual (duh), it’s also including groups and their members from across Philly, Baltimore, D.C. and Delaware as well as lightning talks and interactive trivia about internet culture, computer history and local tech economies. Expect a tight 90 minutes of fun and inspiration.
Yes, it’ll be another Zoom link. But it’s gonna be fun, we swear.
Join these local groups and more from 4 to 5:30 p.m. EST on Thursday:
- Code for Philly
- Indy Hall
- Ionic Philly
- Philly Maker Faire
- ProductTank Philadelphia
- RLadies Philly
- Startup Junto
