Please post the name of your city and a link to your group.
The first meetup a couple of days ago was successful- thanks Dan for organizing it and Coderwall for hosting. Hope to see more of these.
I'll also try to do other nice things for members. For instance, we will have a free lottery for an after-hours secret showing of the movie "Hackers" at The Roxie.
If you need help with intros for event space, etc., let me know. Contact info in my profile.
* - New group! Let's see whether there are enough of us to start a regular meetup.
I'd be interested!
Join if interested. Want to meet at a bar after work the week of Dec 10th?
I'm the Meetup group's organizer, and our first real meetup is a hackathon this weekend: http://www.nevadacityhackathon.com/
Nelson gave a great demo of D3.js. We're a decent group of people to know if you're within 50 miles or so of Sac'to.
Only a couple people, please join!
If you are looking to start a meetup in your own city please make it under the Meetup Everywhere for Hacker News, that way we get a nice directory - and it's free!
It seems like it is literally always run when I'm out of town, but I've heard nothing but greatness abounds.
If you're in healthcare IT and want to meetup, let me know
It's rather empty but I'd like to get it going - please help: join and let's set a date and place!! I just got back from Seattle where the hacker news meetup is a big event - let's do the same in NYC!
The Seattle hacker news meetup - which I've gone to at least once - maybe twice - seemed massive --- like 200+ people show up... I'd say its kind of an anchor of the tech community out there - kind of like the NY Tech meetup here.
Healthcare tech --- I know there's been a fair amount of people show up to my Kinect meetup group with that interest --- we should actually do an event on the topic - perhaps you'd like to help organize something? It's at http://meetup.com/volumetric . Meetups are a great way to find people to work with. Hackathons are even better.
My email is on my hacker news profile - feel free to get in touch to chat more about Seattle or healthcare tech. :)
I'm also attending TEDx Silicon Alley on Monday (http://www.ted.com/tedx/events/4880). If anyone else is going I'd love to hear from you.
In either case, my email is in my profile.
( also, here's the hacker news NYC group - I'm trying to get it started up! http://www.meetup.com/Hacker-News/New-York-NY/ )
