Featured Meetups:

+ AIGeeks

The group is dedicated to promoting Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and other related topics.

+ a11yTO

#a11yTO is all about including new people into our community at our Meetups, camp, or to accessibility in general. Our goal is to provide a welcoming place for people to learn, share experiences ideas and solutions, and to collaborate on building a more inclusive web.

If you're interested in accessibility & inclusive design, this is your home. We usually meet once a month for presentations, tech talks, demos and more.

+ Cyber Tech & Risk

Cyber technologies such as AI, Blockchain, Quantum Computing, IoT, Big Data, Cloud are accelerating the growth of our economy and improving the quality of our life. Meanwhile, they are bringing the huge impact on our cyber risk, security, privacy, governance, and compliance. Just like Charlies Dickens wrote in his book “A Tale of Two Cities”: ”It was the best of times, it was the worst of times … it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity… we had everything before us, we had nothing before us..."

Our meetup is a hub for people who care about technology, risk, and security to get fresh ideas, learn latest skills, identify new opportunities, advance career development, and expand business & professional networks.

We will invite industry leaders and experts to speak on topics such as Game-Changing Technologies, Innovation Programs, Cyber Risk, Cyber Security, Cyber Strategy, Data Privacy, Cyber Compliancy, Cyber Insurance, Cyber Talents, Career Development, etc.

+ DevOps Toronto

The future of the software world lies in the co-operation of development, quality assurance and operations. Delivering top-notch products quickly requires integration and collaboration -- no more silos.

This group is for people who share that vision. I wanted to create a meetup for like-minded folks to share ideas, complain, layout plans and vision for the future, and generally enjoy great company.

+ Toronto Machine Learning Series

TMLS events bring together business leaders and applied ML practitioners.

TMLS is a community of over 5,000 practitioners, researchers, entrepreneurs and executives . We work to highlight our community and foster growth in the local ecosystem.

+ TorontoJS

Toronto JavaScript is a meet up for those interested in all things JavaScript. Client side, server side, we love it all!

+ VoiceTechTO

Voice Tech TO is for developers, designers, and product managers to meet and exchange knowledge on the subject of voice products—how to make them, and how to make them better.

Whether building for Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Siri, MS Cortana, or Bixby, VTTO is a place for software developers, digital product makers, and business managers to get together, teach, and learn.
