There are meetups every night of the week, of course, to cater to every interest. Not all of these are Meetups, and we can’t mention every tech-related Meetup in NYC. We’re including a few on the list, but for the full tilt, well, that’s why the Powers that Be and Scott Heifferman created Meetup.com.
New York Tech Meetup
Founded by Meetup founder Scott Heifferman, the New York Tech Meetup is the granddaddy of all meetups and the largest one in the system, with its 40,000 members. NYU’s Skirball Center, where the event is held each month, accommodates around 800. That’s why you make sure to get tickets early. Or head down to New Work City, where it’s livestreamed (pizza and beer included). Or watch it livestreamed from the comfort of your own home, but you’ll have to buy your own pizza. 10 companies present each month, Hack of the Month’s Brandon Diamond tells a geeky joke midway through (I always laugh), and the evening wraps up with cocktails (not included in the price of admission). $10
