Reactivate X meetup

8 October 2019


Added 01-Jan-1970

We live in a fast-paced world and have been conditioned to absorb things in bite-sized quantities ( I see you Twitter, Vine and Tiny Letter ) so this night is for short attention spans and maximum amount of breaks but so much learning! We'll have a breadth of topics, roughly under the "web" umbrella as well as food and drinks, of course.

Here's the lineup (in no particular order):
