Meetups

Meetups

Local meetups cover a wide range of specialised interests in the local tech industry. Some meet monthly, some are quarterly, some are a little more relaxed (but still worth joining). Meeting with others is a great way to pick up new skills, find help with tricky problems, and meet interesting people. Networking is a great way to find a job, because many are not listed publicly.

All the local meetups we know about are listed below, with their next event and contact details. Most are run by volunteers, so if you have a bit of spare time please step up and offer to help.

Palmerston North Senior IT / ITP

In a senior IT role with significant responsibility? Meet for breakfast 7:30am on the second Thursday of the month to share ideas / resources with your peers, discuss challenges, form a network of people you can call on for a bit of advice. This is also an IT Professionals meetup: a number of regulars are ITP members. Attendance is free (but pay for your own breakfast). Anyone can come: you do not have to be an ITP member.(This group was called "Senior IT Managers", but its really for anyone who has been around the block a few dozen times, got some deep experience to share, responsible for a few people or a few projects or a decent budget)
