Attended NY Tech Meetup, my first meetup. Huge gathering and wonderful experience

I heard lot about NY Tech Meetup from my directors and sales heads in US. Yesterday I got an opportunity to attend it and the experience was great. These kinds of meetups helps to build network which is of crucial for people who are in Technology, Sales & Marketing etc. We will find new people, networks that can converted into win-win business, friends etc.

In yesterday’s meetup the auditorium was full even though the weather was not good (snow, windy and rain),  I learnt that, NY tech meetup is always full and it not unusual for them. NY tech meetup is the largest tech meetup group in the World.

As the name says meetup, I met lot of interesting people (engineers, sales, students, school kids) around the world including one student from Pakistan “”named Junaid who  sat next to me in the auditorium, he came to NY for doing a project in  Microsoft (the project is making smart phone as Hearing Aid device using Bluetooth). His interest area is hardware – software interfacing & IoT..interesting

Following were the companies / individuals & NGOs presented their idea, product, MVPs etc. [Content courtesy from http://www.meetup.com/ny-tech/events/218789351/]. From all of the demos, I liked Lyft & Peloton Bike
