I invite the TechHui community, clearly interested in connecting and collaborating with the Hawaii tech community, to check out a few other venues for networking, knowledge sharing and socializing.
Hawaii Slack - https://www.hawaiislack.com
An open Slack instance for Hawaii for real-time messaging. Channels for developers, photographers, educators, and more. You can skip the moderated sign-up process with this link.
Hawaii Tech Group on Facebook- https://www.facebook.com/groups/hawaiitech/
Created alongside HawaiiTech.com, a local sci-tech/STEM news site I run (with a job board), this group surrenders to the near inevitability o Facebook in daily life. This public group is certainly a good fit for anyone here!
Hawaii Threads - https://www.hawaiithreads.com
If you're interested in more than tech, this old-school message board has been running since 2004. The golden page of the web forum is ancient history, but for those hoping to escape the maw of Facebook, it's a good alternative! Registration is manually moderated, but I can create an account for you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'd also encourage you to check out:
HawaiiCal - https://www.hawaiical.com
A calendar of local tech events, science cafes, education unconferences, hackathons, and so on. If it's a real-life gathering of curious creatives, it should be listed here. (Event submissions welcome!)
