Online: During RIPE 85, the Meet & Greet team will be available in the M&G room on SpatialChat from Monday to Friday, during the Welcome Coffee break (08:30 to 09:00 UTC+2). You can get in touch with them before and during the meeting using the email meet-greet [at] ripe [dot] net. In these sessions, you can meet other newcomers, share your thoughts on how your week is going, ask any questions that you might have or just have a chat with the Meet & Greet team.
