Join Virtual Coffee

We're answering your questions about joining Virtual Coffee!

As we move into the third year of Virtual Coffee, the maintainers—with the help of a team of invested community members—have decided to pause the new membership while we work on finding the best ways to support our existing community and define what the new year will look like for us all.

Follow us on Twitter for the latest update while the new membership is paused.

1. Attend one of our Coffees (Zoom Meetings)

You need to attend one of Coffees (Zoom Meetings) on Tuesday at 9:00 AM ET or Thursday at 12:00 PM ET that last an hour.

We absolutely love the closeness of this community and know it’s one of the many things that sets us apart. This closeness starts with those coffees. We would also like to give you the experience of Virtual Coffee in person before we move to Slack group.

2. Complete the registration form 😊

Our MC will drop the link of the New Member Form together with the Code of Conduct and other links during the intro of Coffee. The New Member Form will be dropped again at the end of the session.

Grab the form, fill it in, and submit it. Then, you will be given access to our Slack group.

3. So now you’re in our Slack! Welcome! 👋

You can introduce yourself in this channel. We would love to know who you are, where you are in your tech journey, and what you enjoy outside of tech!

We’re getting to know other members, old and new, through casual conversations on Zoom. We prioritize empathy, encouraging everyone to participate in the ways that are most comfortable to them, and learning together. Check out our Guide To Virtual Coffee for more details.

Are there any other days and times for Coffees?

Not yet, but we're working on it!

I’m an introvert. Would it be okay to turn off my camera during Coffees?

If you aren't comfortable having your camera or even sound on, feel free to turn them off! There is no obligation for you to have them on. You can always drop chat if it’s more convenient for you. We want you to be as comfortable as possible in our coffees.

I’m a newbie. Can I still join Virtual Coffee?

Absolutely! If you’re into online communities, and enjoy conversations around tech, then Virtual Coffee is for you!

You can participate in our events, have access to our slack, get support and help as you need, mentorship, and most of all, FRIENDSHIPS! Feel free to take a glimpse of what’s going on in Virtual Coffee to get some more insights.

None, nada! You don’t need to pay memberships to join Virtual Coffee. Our members volunteer their time and support for Virtual Coffee. Sponsorships helps us to continue serving the Virtual Coffee community and to support all of the things you see on this website!
