In the simplest sense, NetMcr is about spending a bit of time each month, socialising with your fellow Networking professionals.
To be more complex about it, NetMcr was planned (by Thom & Tom) to fill a void in Manchester’s techni-social calendar. Whilst the majority of ‘meetings’ in the city focus on Development or Cloud infrastructure, we’re focusing specifically on Network Engineers, Architects & Technicians. Or, perhaps, just anyone interested in the profession.
We do publish a Respect Policy, which all first time guests are encouraged to read before attending.
We’re keen to foster good social networking, perhaps a chance to vent about networking over a beer or two, and to throw in a little learning along the way. There’s no ‘entry requirement’ in terms of knowledge, and the event itself is free to attend.
NetMcr events are presently held on the second Thursday of each month, at 19:00, in the upstairs bar of 57 Thomas Street. The staff are lovely, the beer is delicious, and so are the meat & cheese boards; it’s a perfect spot for socialising (with or without the alcohol) and also provides just enough space for us to site a projector.
In light of the pandemic, we are presently running virtual NetMcr meetings on Zoom, with a stricter agenda of talks that runs between 7:30pm and 9:30pm. Pending interest, we will normally leave the bridge open until 11pm for the discussion, socialising and chit-chat to continue.
