Halihax September Hybrid Meetup

Join us in person or virtually to catch up with the community, and hear members tell stories of the last time they broke something. It's been a long time since we've been able to connect with the community in person, and following the start of phase 5, we would like to plan a fun, informal event to catch up with the community and ease back into in-person meetups. We recognize that not all of our members are located in Halifax, and also that people may prefer to attend the event virtually. To accommodate this, we will be hosting a live stream of the talks via Zoom so everyone can still participate.
