Ash Balakrishnan has joined the council to bring some part time support for community facilitation, events planning, and commissioning and managing community content for this site.

Ash is a Croydon resident and seasoned tech networker, who has organised events as part of London Tech Week and is eager (as are so many of our community!) to see Croydon’s tech scene flourish.

The first thing he’s doing is setting up informal drinks, resurrecting this meetup group, with the first one taking place in Limitless VR this Friday, 8 March from 5.30pm to 9.30pm.

Limitless VR are generously hosting us and letting us all try out their VR headsets for free – so come along if you can, we hope you can make it!

See details and sign up here (please do sign up rather than just turn up, so we know numbers, thanks).

We plan to run another 3 drinks evenings after that (and if they go well, we’ll keep them going beyond). So add these dates to your diaries:

  • Friday 5 April, 5.30 to 9.30
  • Friday 3 May, 5.30 to 9.30
  • Friday 7 June, 5.30 to 9.30
