Dear fellow FENG members,
One way of staying on top of new technologies & trends while at the same time networking with people from many different industries, is by visiting tech events. The good news: there are many in NYC and many of them are even free.
My 2 key sources when looking for tech events in NYC are:
1. Meetup - https://www.meetup.com (sign up for free and search for NY Tech meetups - there are hundreds!)
2. GarysGuide - https://www.garysguide.com/events (sign up for newsletter)
I am sure there are many other events and ways to learn about them. But just these 2 sources give me all the information I need to keep me busy.
It was at one of these meetup events organized by the Disruptive Technologists earlier this year that I decided to get involved. I am now their VP Business Development on a voluntary basis. My task is to help grow the community and the events. I can highly recommend getting involved in such organizations. You can learn a lot about social media content and rules, digital and influencer marketing, sponsorships, and much more.
And since we are at it: Disruptive Technologists are organizing their next FREE event on July 30th at the Microsoft office/ Time Square. Topic: Digital Preservation, Privacy, Protocols :
Please sign up by Monday June 23 on the meetup site: https://www.meetup.com/Disruptive-Technologists-in-NYC/events/250903046/
