Local Tech Meetups were Once a Recruiting Bonanza. Can they be Again?

It’s summer 2017, and we have run out of pizza.

We at Technical.ly are hosting an event at a gleaming new coworking space near the White House. This is the second year we’ve organized in DC what we call Super Meetup. Organizers of nearly 50 tech meetups agreed to invite their members to one big party.

The night’s goal is for attendees to learn about other recurring events that focus on specific coding languages, product development approaches and entrepreneurship. Members of DC Tech Meetup, the largest meetup in the region, as well as members of ACM Washington, Code for DC, DC Blockchain Users, DCFemTech, DC JavaScript, DC PyLadies and DC Women in Agile, among dozens of others were invited.
