    Overall, a great meetup.
    I would have liked a bit more basic introduction to Heroku platform, but I learned quite a bit regardless. Perhaps consider including a breakout session next time to separate newb user needs from experienced Herokusers.
    Also, thanks for the great food that was provided.

    The opening meeting gave us a chance to talks to Heroku personnel, and also hear about overlooked features from other users.

    Overall, the presentations were excellent and pitched at just the right level. Seeing live coding is really helpful. My only criticism is that I thought the meeting dragged on at the end. Perhaps the meeting could have ended formerly earlier but allow for additional informal discussion for those that are interested.

    Great meetup. I liked the tripartite organization of networking session, heruko talk, and then live coding

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
