Just Dev It (DC) was established to fill a niche that is not as prevalent in other meetup groups, the opportunity to actually do something with your talent and energy. As with any city, the DC market is unique and requires it own special build of Just Dev It to match the demographics of this area. We are more than just another meetup group, we are a community. Sure, we will share and discuss topics like any other meetup group, but in most cases they will be relevant to projects that members are actually working on. There will be times to socialize too.
We have over 400 members in the combined Washington, DC, Northern Va, Maryland meetup groups and growing.
One of the main goals of Just Dev It is to be the gestalt of all the popular business, technology and creative meetup communities, joining a cross section of disciplines and interests together into one group which is greater than the sum of it's parts.
Developing a great solution requires hard work, dedication and help from many talented people who offer different pieces to the puzzle. Great solutions are comprised of many building blocks which require expertise and experience that some individuals alone do not possess.
Graphic Artists may need Web Developers
iPhone Developers may need Graphic Artists
Small Businesses may need Web developers who may need iPhone developers
You get the point
Just Dev It will give these individuals the opportunity to network and possibly team up on each other's endeavors. Not only do we want to play matchmaker with participating members talents, but we also want to promote leveraging the right technology for each other's unique solutions.
Just Dev It will not just be another meetup, it will evolve eventually into an international community of doers, producing great things with the help of each other. Support from a dedicated website, blog and forum will be available soon. Eventually we will add a few robust tools to facilitate and promote collaboration, communication and organization between members.
This is just the beginning. We need a few good people to get started, including team leaders.
So where do we start? Are you ready to pitch in? Let's Just Dev It together.
