Dev communities thrive on meetups. These are places where you come to know about interesting things other people are working on, people working on them and build a professional and social network.
Before COVID hit the world, all my Saturday mornings were infallibly reserved for meetups. And Bangalore, being the tech hub it is, gives you a good buffet of meetups to choose from.
With coming of COVID though, things are a lot different. We are confined to our houses and dev communities are trying to figure out new, interesting ways to interact online. In this context, I was pleasantly, surprised when I came across a DevOps meetup which is organized on Animal Crossing.
If you are not aware, Animal Crossing is a popular social simulation video game. Here is what wikipedia has to say about it:
Animal Crossing is a social simulation video game series developed and published by Nintendo and created by Katsuya Eguchi. In Animal Crossing, the player character is a human who lives in a village inhabited by various anthropomorphic animals, carrying out various activities such as fishing, bug catching, and fossil hunting.
I am pretty excited to see how this meetup will turnout. If you want to attend, just for the heck of it, here's the link:
