We are so grateful to Meetup.com for hosting our students on Thursday 1/8 for an office tour and career discussion. What our students really gleaned from the entire experience was that Meetup.com is a true community building powerhouse that cares about getting people together to share their common passions.
C/I students are continually supported by many individual Meetup groups. New York Tech Meetup invites schools to their monthly demos at NYU’s Skirball Auditorium, our students will be demoing at the next Bronx Tech Meetup, Women Who Code taught parents how to code at our AT&T Mobile C/I Hackathon at Google, and Sierra Club NYC Inspiring Connections Outdoors sends volunteers to all of our trips to build leadership and teamwork skills.
Our students asked some great questions to Andrea Murphy, Community Engagement Manager and heard from C/I Board Member and Meetup’s “Lawzilla” General Council, David Pashman. We closed out the day with a great coding session in Meetup’s front conference room — because all of our students want to join Meetup’s team of developers in the very near future.
Thanks so much for hosting us – we had a great time!
