Once again, here’s the weekly list of events for events for Tampa Bay techies, entrepreneurs, and nerds. Every week, on GlobalNerdy.com and on the mailing list, I scour the announcements for events that are interesting to or useful for those of you who are building the future here in “The Other Bay Area, on The Other West Coast”.
This list covers events from Monday, October 19 through Sunday, October 25, 2020.
I’ve opted to list only those events that I can confirm are happening online. I’m not yet listing in-person events, as we’re still in the middle of a pandemic in one of the hardest-hit states (752,000 cases, which is an increase of 23,000 since last week, and 15,916 deaths, which is up 700 from last week) in one of the hardest-hit countries in the world (8.14 million cases, which is an increase of 390,000 from last week, and 219,000 deaths, which is up 5,000 from last week).
Events — especially virtual, online ones — can pop up at the last minute. I add them to the list as I find out about them. Come back and check this article from time to time, as you might find a new listing that wasn’t there before!
