Where to find friends to talk about infrastructure and application software public tech companies?
I really like public tech companies (late stage venture just as well but harder to get a satisfying amount of information about them). My favorite subsector is infrastructure software, but application software is pretty cool too. As for the former, I can't stop reading about Snowflake, Confluent, Twilio, MongoDB, etc.; it makes me absolutely euphoric to learn about this tech.
Learning about the financials for me is kind of a necessary evil given my business / finance background and because I will never be an engineer. IMO if you just buy the long term basket of infrastructure software stocks you will make plenty, plenty, plenty of money.
My biggest problem is that I only have one friend who kind of likes this stuff but I am trying to find other people who I can talk to about this stuff. One idea was Discord or Slack communities, which I think would be satisfactory (I don't feel the need to mix IRL shithead drinking buddies with internet infrastructure software nerd friends).
I'm not sure if there are other ideas I haven't thought about. What would you recommend?
