NetSquared believes in the power of meeting face-to-face in physical space. Online learning is awesome (and TechSoup has got you covered), but a special magic is created when we get together in the same room and start building relationships.
In honour of Valentine's Week TechSoup's Jim Lynch and I were interviewed by DatingAdvice.com's Hayley Mathis. We talked about how NetSquared can help you find your tribe (and maybe your soul mate).
"Eli told us the groups are usually about 60% women and 40% men, with an interesting gender split by profession. Speaking broadly, NetSquared’s Community Manager explained their target membership is half nonprofit workers (who are majority female) and technical professionals (who are majority male). “Sometimes it’s like a middle school dance, trying to get these two groups to cross the room and interact,” Eli joked. 'It’s a good social mixer, which is what I think keeps people coming back.'"
We’re writing with an introduction to connect the Docker and NetSquared #Tech4Good meetups. We’re both global networks dedicated to building tech capacity for our members, so wouldn’t it be cool if we could bring our communities for a big event?
Why Meeting is Totally Worth Your Time
