That’s why I decided to offer to host anyone getting started in their career. To provide them at least an online place to introduce themselves and their work to a small crowd of engineers of varied experience levels. I was so grateful at the response as well. Our first meeting drew quite an awesome group of people.
And now, some of my planned presenters are apologizing because they’re too busy with interviews and such to prepare for a presentation.
Let me say, the whole point of the presentations is to connect people. If what you’re doing is working, I couldn’t be happier. If you find that you have time to present, let me know and we’ll work out some kind of gathering.
