Fair play to you for compiling this!

Very interesting to see the wider adoption of groups in Universities happen seemingly in the same year, rather than gradually. Almost like a wave moving from small groups to larger institutions.

Thanks. The folks at GalSTEM in DCU shared their socs list with me, it's not definitive, but yeah, I wouldn't have gotten that info otherwise. I would love to know everything but it's great that folks from uni, community organisers themselves are chipping in and helping me find more of these groups. And it looks like they are still needed unfortunately. It's easier to tell people there are this many groups instead of trying to remember which ones I heard of and attended off the top of my head. And people are welcome to let me know if it's missing something, or needs an edit. I'm still curious too. :-)

Perhaps you could opensource your list with some rules for contributers? That way coders who are in these groups could participate in maintaining this data.

I was thinking about that as well, to put it up on github. It's on my TODO list. It's great that you mentioned it as well. Then people can add a PR if there's changes to be made. 🤜🤛

Plus I can just embed the list instead of having to reformat everywhere I post about it! So a win for me to save some time. 😆
