Bagels & Bytes
Bagels & Bytes is technology-related peer learning and networking at its best! Bring your tech questions, ideas, and issues. Join our fellowship of nonprofit techies (professional and “accidental” are equally welcome) as we brainstorm, share ideas and solutions, and support each other!
Upcoming events: http://www.meetup.com/Bagels-Bytes/
Both groups are very supportive and non-judgmental. There is no such thing as a “stupid” question at these meetings – all questions and topics for discussion are welcomed. We learn from each other in unexpected ways constantly, regardless of knowledge or skill levels. Hence, you don’t have to be an “expert” techie to attend, just curious and interested in nonprofit technology.

Bagels & Bytes – Allegheny County
This group meets the first Wednesday of each month (except January and July) from 8:30-10 am. Meeting locations rotate every few months, but the group is always hosted by a local nonprofit org. We typically do a summer “outing” each June. We generally hold our December meeting on a Friday afternoon at Dave and Buster’s at the Waterfront, our annual “holiday party.” Bagels & Bytes – Allegheny is FREE to attend, but you must RSVP. (Note: for the annual Holiday Party, each attendee pays for his or her own meal.) Please register via phone or email at 412-397-6000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
