This idea spread

to other cities and languages/frameworks

Webs of weak ties are what allow ideas to spread.

Bridge Foundry's newest hit:

Workshop Ingredients

Space: a main area with breakout rooms
Food: don't forget vegetarian/gf/etc options
Childcare: volunteer or hired

Volunteers: facilitators, teachers, TAs
Curriculum: a working app
Students: women, and any man who comes as the +1 of a woman

Afterparty: drink tickets for volunteers

Benefits to your company:
