My Favorite Tech Events and Groups in Houston, TX

These are events I go to. They are all welcoming. I really like them. I think you will like them too. Network, learn, make friends, or just chill.

Reading

Houston Reading Parties

I love reading, but I don't want to be part of a book club. I want to read at my own pace. This is where Houston Reading Parties comes in. You can attend any of their events. All you have to bring is something to read, whether it is a book, your kindle, or even a comic book. I have started reading more books thanks to this group.

Houston Code and Coffee

A Houston coding meetup for any dev-curious, aspiring, or professional developer to work/hack on your project. Or learn to code in an afternoon with coffee and cool-inclusive people.

Freelance

Houston Freelance Creatives

If you are a freelancer in Houston, or interested in freelancing, come to every event this group hosts. I have loved attending all their events before Covid and they are now back! They use the Lean Coffee method and everyone talks about topics around freelancing.

Design Thinking and Innovation

One of absolute favorite groups. I've been attending their events since 2019. It's not your typical group where you come and attend a talk, network, and leave. You are actively participating in interesting discussions around design thinking and how you can champion design in your own company or organization.
