    I am talking about this https://www.meetup.com
    As I am absent from social media, and a LOT or tech events are happening near my location, and I wasn't aware.
    Last year there was the annual KDE meeting near my location, man I was so frustrated to find out that I could go, but simply didn't knew about it.
    So, as I want to brush up my skills and proactive participate on debates or tech camps or cons, my hosting provider suggested this platform, and really was pleasantly surprised to find events of interest, Wordpress, Python and security related seminaries.
    Yeah, but I am a somehow weary of creating accounts in places which I really don't know or have some hands on opinions from people who used the product or platform before.
    Suggestions. opinions?
    Thank you for your time!
    Cheers!

    You have an account with that platform?
    They send you spam, ads and they sell your data?

    I think I'll go to the next event, but without creating the account and see if they won't let me attend the event.
    Sort of a lifehack, or rather pushing the boundaries of what's normal nowadays.
    Because of this new normality, one doesn't "exist" if it's not registered on social media.
    Will keep you updated.

    Upon re-reading it, I think I probably misunderstood what he meant, actually.

    @Size_Mick , don't worry man, I was expecting that.
    The name itself creates the confusion.
    Imagine what took me to actually search for it and how many "things" I was presented as being what I've searched for, but totally different social frame.
    Luckily, I searched with a privacy oriented search engine and having a VPN, with a browser with WebRTC leak fixed.
    Even so, I kinda expect to receive a lot of ads and with single hoy women wanting to meet me up.
