You can teach a class on something you specialize in, whether it be education, law, or graphic design; there's no limit to the number of groups this applies to. You can host a meetup, organize a hackathon, or invite consumers to test your new product. The goal is simply to make an event that shows how New Orleans innovates, utilizes, and features technology to help better our community.
