Nigerian/African Meetups in London?


#101

Hello all,

Apologies. I have been super swamped with work lately. But I’m dropping some good news.

There will be another event happening. ‘Building Things for NG 2.0’.
Setting the date for the 2nd week of July preferably July 8th (Friday) but if people are up for July 7th (Thursday) that’s fine too.

But I need your opinions on some things.

  • Should we still go to a bar like before? If not, what other venue suggestions do you have? Someone suggested bbq since it’s summer
  • Would you be happy to meet every 6-8 weeks?

I will also send an email to those that attended previously.

Thanks. Official Eventbrite invites will probably go out next week.

Yay! I’m good for either days but let’s stick to Friday.

BBQ sounds great…but maybe hard to pull off? Venue wise, is there any we should consider from previous list? I know @Tonianni provided a few.

Every 8 weeks sounds about right, as I do agree that it makes sense to have some consistency to it. I know a

This might be a good place to iron out some of the logistics, especially for folks not on Radar.

I was in favour of something outdoorsy but the weather seems to have takena turn. So aybe we just stick with a bar like the last time.

Initially was happy with every 8 weeks, but I would think maybe quarterly would work better for people…less of a commitment, but that’s just what I feel

Email and maybe a link to a typeform so people just vote for their options, less back and forth

Thanks for taking it up again @ADT

Yh. I think the weather in England cannot be trusted.

So a bar it is. I would look for something similar to last time.

Quarterly is not a bad idea actually. It will give some breathing space so I will look into this.

No worries. Friday of 2nd week in July it is!


#105

With this Brexit thing, can we even afford the drinks? In any case, maybe look for a bar with beer garden or rooftop, if you want a compromise to outdoors.

Okay. Still on the research p. Will let everyone know as soon as possible.

Thanks

To state the obvious, this is a very old thread (15 months counting). But thought to resurrect it as we had the 6th event last Thursday (Radar you do well!).

Also worth mentioning that apart from usual partners-in-crime like @sambydev, @ozoesono, @ADT, @abiola_omoniyi and @sugarkanke also met folks like @nke_ise and @Ogunleye_Damilare @saniyusuf etc from here last week.

Details? You can find recap here with pictures and speakers slides. So when next you’re in town, definitely worth dropping your email at http://www.btng.tech to get notified of next meet up.
