What are your favorite IH-related meetup groups/events in NYC?
Founders Friday (http://foundersfridaynyc.com/) is pretty solid. V well organized, cool format (fireside chat, q&a, networking, not too long) and some great speakers.
I'll go first. I don't have any faves, that's why I'm asking! But here's the NYC IH meetup group I coordinate: https://www.meetup.com/Business-Strategy-Brainstorming-Group/
I run three meetups.
For data science and machine learning we have sunday study groups and a consultant from google speaking in december https://www.meetup.com/Kaggle-NYC/
For those new to nyc or just want to make friends we have after work drinks and soup dumplings brunch coming up https://www.meetup.com/meetup-group-RDfpWyoy/
For those in bushwick, ridgewood or northern Brooklyn we have brunchsgiving coming up https://www.meetup.com/BushwickRidgewood/
Plus one vote for Zach's group. The Astoria Tech meetup is pretty solid! Also, the Bubble meetup group I just took over is always worth checking out. https://www.meetup.com/Bubble-NYC/
Does Facebook events have any good ones?
Dont think fb has groups for events per say. They have pages and pages/users might make an event.
Talk to others who live in NYC.
