  • The Sheffield Meta-Meetup is the meetup for people who organise meetups, and those who would like to.

    It's an opportunity for organisers to meet and exchange tips, collaborate and pool resources in order to make each other's events more successful. Many of the meetups are 'tech meetups', but not all - the meta-meetup is open to anyone who organises regular events around particular topics or for specific communities in Sheffield. This edition of the Meta-Meetup will take place online. The format of the Meta Meetup is in three parts:

    6:00 - 6:30pm Intro and ice-breakers.
    6:30 - 7:00pm Short talks.
    7:00 - 7:30pm "Open space" breakout room discussions.
    The 'open space' discussion will either be for all attendees at once, or we'll split into individual breakout rooms depending on how many people there are. The discussions will be on topics chosen by the participants. Each new topic is introduced with a question. Participants can provide opening questions by writing them in the chat...
