DC’s tech Meetup groups are always looking for speakers, sponsors, volunteers, and host locations. If you are interested in volunteering your time to help out at a Project Night or give a presentation on programming, Meetups are a great option. You can also sponsors events, or provide office space for Meetup groups to meet in.
The DC metro area has many different Meetup groups built around programming languages, data science, diversity in tech, and more. Meetup events range in size from a few people to hundreds. They generally meet on weekday evenings for a combination of food, drink, and networking (usually provided by a sponsor) followed by a 45 minute presentation by a local engineer or technical founder.
