Lunch & Learn

Bytes are just a starting point for learning about a topic. At Lunch & Learn we discuss a featured Byte every week: kind of like a book club, only bite-sized! 📚🤏

To participate all you need to do is:

  • Read the featured Byte (~5 minutes)

  • Come to the 🔊server-events voice channel at the time of the meeting to chat!

We have a recurring Lunch & Learn each week and sometimes have extra pop-up sessions.

To see all upcoming Lunch & Learn sessions check out our events page, and see past Lunch & Learn post-session notes in the #📚lunch-and-learn channel.

Speaker Events And Workshops

We're all about knowledge-sharing in the community and sometimes it helps to hear someone experienced talk about a topic or guide you through how to do something. 👂 It's also a great opportunity to ask questions!

A few sessions we've hosted in the past include:
