I apologise for the wait. But they are finally here. The moments from the first Radar Offline meetup, frozen in time, forever, for your enjoyment. There are so many feels in there. So many.

What is Radar Offline?

Radar (radar.techcabal.com), isTechCabal.com’s companion forum, has been around for more than a year, and is host to some of the smartest internet entrepreneurs, developers and designers in Nigeria. Today, we are a thriving community, with close to 2,000 registered users, which are a mere fraction of the actual number of people that visit to just read and learn from the conversations that happen here.

On the 28th of April, TechCabal hosted Radar’s first offline meetup to commemorate the forum’s first year of existence, as well as to finally give members the opportunity to meet the people they had been interacting with online, offline.

There was no agenda…

We made nametags out of people’s usernames, so that when they walked in, all they had to do was find their nametag, get drinks, food, and then meet people.

A whole year’s worth of online context in one room. Cue serendipity and magic.

We think some people might have pitched next level ideas even…

Okay, okay, just kidding.

Tech women came through!

Considering how much men outnumber women on Radar, I was really elated at the number of ladies that eventually made it.

Thank you so much, to the women who are on Radar, and to the gentlemen who have kept Radar from turning into a bro-zone.
