Where Do Software Engineers Find Community — IRL Work, Remote Events, Both, Neither?

How do you balance in-person and remote collaboration post-pandemic?

It seems like there isn’t a straightforward answer to the question these days, even four years since COVID-19 hit (yes, really), with some tech events and meetup groups continuing to meet virtually and others returning to an in-person format.

The remote vs. in-person debate also impacts the working world, with some companies requiring employees to return to the office at least some of the week. On the other hand: Technical.ly has heard that several prominent growth-stage companies are downsizing or giving up on their once-flaunted downtown leases. (Look for more reporting on that trend soon.)
