Meetup Mates – A reflection on the past six months

Six months ago, Meetup Mates was born!

Meetup Mates is an online community run on Slack with over 200 members. The platform helps bring together like-minded people looking to attend more Meetups in the tech space. We share interactive polls every Friday, ready for the forthcoming week, which includes relevant and interesting events. Mates can vote for events they plan on attending, with the option of adding additional events that aren’t on the list. We gather as a group from an hour before the Meetup starts, before heading there together. This reduces the nerve-wracking feeling of meeting new people and attending events for the first time! During October, our first social event took place, which exceeded all our expectations! We had such a good time with it we’re already planning our next one so join the crew if you’d like to attend!

These first six months have been so rewarding for us and we are delighted to see how our community is growing and benefiting the Mates already on the channel. We are so proud to champion this community that brings together these amazing people and want to encourage others to break out of their comfort zone, join a community and build their network. This will enable you to learn new skills, share experiences and make new connections within your industry.

Joining is simple… click here and you will receive your invitation to join the Slack channel.
