This month may be a short one, but it's packed with plenty of opportunities to network and learn something new.

The new year has started, so it's time to get back to it. We rounded up some of the upcoming events for designers, developers, and those generally interested in new technologies. We'll be hosting this month's Women In Games Boston meetup and the next Swift Office Hours, so come on by and see you soon!
Before the year comes to a close and the holidays kick into gear, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the tech and design events in Boston. This month, designers who are creating podcast-related work will have the chance to get feedback from Thomas Romer, the designer for popular podcasts 99% Invisible and Radiolab, and developers curious about React Native can stop in at the Boston Frontend meetup for an introduction.
As you inch your way towards the ledge of the mountain your heart races and you start to experience a dizzying sense of vertigo. You’ve nearly forgotten that the thousand-foot drop that lies ahead doesn’t actually exist, and that your feet are firmly planted on a carpet. You are in a virtual reality simulation, but it feels very real.
Every month we highlight some of the most exciting meetups, hackathons and events in Boston. Whether you're looking to hear more about the hype about podcasts and what goes into making one, or you want to learn more about the UX and the benefit of hidden app structures, or are a woman in tech who is looking to connect with fellow female developers, there's something for everyone. Here's what going on before we all tuck into our Thanksgiving dinners:
In 2014, 22.5 million people in the U.S., from 12 years old and up, needed treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction, but only 11% of them (2.6 million people) actually received treatment at specialty treatment programs. Recent technological advances have begun to supplement treatment; from apps to VR, technology has began to make treatment more accessible to those suffering from addiction.
Each month, we're going to be highlighting some of the Boston tech meetups, hackathons, and events that we've got our eye on. Below, check out a list of the upcoming events we're excited for, including a talk at MIT this week on The Intelligent Integrated Store, and the launch of Swift Office Hours on October 25!
