    This event was very inspiring and informative. All the speakers had interesting things to say, and were very generous with their time. Smart and not-so-smart questions were answered with complete equanimity.

    This was great for me. Very inspirational.

    February 17, 2011

  • Dave E.

    Thanks to Joyent, Ryan for chipping in and presenting on v. 0.4 release of Node.

    Very good presentation: http://socket.io/ ; Google searches: socket.io , socket.io node.js , socket.io tutorial , socket.io api , socket.io ruby

    All, please don't forget, Loggly, Inc. is sponsoring food and drinks for the event, as well as hosting us at the space. Please bring your appetites and we will start off the event by breaking some bread and getting to know other folks in the Node.js community.

    This is sort of financial district/market street area so expect parking is not good or not easy. Give yourself some time to hunt around south of Market for parking garages. Better yet, take bart or bike.

    February 16, 2011

  • Lap C.

    May I know how's the parking situation is over there? Do they have parking spot? or can we find a parking space easily?

    February 16, 2011

  • Truedat

    Reminder to all, instructions for how to get into the meeting location: Loggly, Inc. will be posted on the door (not online). Thanks and see you tonight.

    February 16, 2011

  • Truedat

    Folks, more spots open. Thanks Loggly. Fill 'er up. Please ask your guests to register.

    February 15, 2011

  • Dave E.

    BTW - don't know how to do this in the new UI but - bringing 1 guy from work.

    February 11, 2011

  • Truedat

    No problem. Done!

    Also, just beware, SF Web Performance is meeting on Mobile Performance on this same night/time. I think it is sold out: http://www.meetup.com/SF-Web-Performance-Group/events/16116764/?a=_grp&rv=me1p

    February 9, 2011

  • Truedat

    Thanks Kord at Loggly for offering to host and sponsor the event at Loggly HQ. I will update the meetup location as soon as I have the Loggly profile available in Meetup's db.

    The Parisoma rep said the drinks were on the honor system - I feel comfortable there; as well I feel that Drupal is one of the pools of crossover developers I want to draw from as many of them are conversant in JS. I'll hold my meetups there in any case and see how it goes. Also the floor you are used to is the old location - they're moving. I do wish a lot of the RSVPs were REAL RSVPS....

    February 9, 2011

  • Truedat

    Also, I have to agree with Ric, Parisoma is a challenging environment for a Meetup. The SF Drupal meetup used to meet there, but space was always an issue as was the odd layout of the floorplan. I opt for free for now until a HERO emerges and offers us bigger, consistent use of a space here in SF.

    February 9, 2011

  • Truedat

    I've got space to meet, but not for more than 10 or so. Nice thing is that with most meetups with the exception of the highly over-subscribed HTML5 and Android meetups, never more than 1/2 the "YES" RSVPs show up. So even if we have 25 saying yes, it will be 15 tops. I'll set the location for AOE offices, and if I can get some help working the doors from a volunteer, we can start by 7 stick with the current location.

    February 9, 2011

  • Van N.

    You could get a company (who is using node) to sponsor the event and pay for the space. If it is going to be at parisoma, my company could sponsor.

    February 9, 2011

  • Richard F.

    Well, that is a good price but it's not free. I don't know anybody at these places but I do know that I have been to meetups that were hosted in SF at no cost, at: Google, Microsoft, Techsoup. Might want to check these free locations before binding us into a Cost+ location.

    As per PariSoma's serve yourself web bar, I think that is really for their own renters. I've been there and never got the feeling the fridge was for me to open and pull from.

    February 9, 2011

  • Dave E.

    Hey Parisoma is willing to let us use conference rooms for $60 a night - thats WAY more reasonable than other places, plus they have a serve yourself web bar with a donation cup. I am going to book them for the 22nd - I'd recommend looking into them for your group as well. Larger attendance might change the rates but I suspect they'll be well under the $250+ quotes we're getting elsewhere.

    February 9, 2011

  • Truedat

    Hi Kord C., using the Loggly office would be great. Can we schedule our Meetup for your office on Feb 16th at 6:30pm? Are we ok to bring food in for the event?

    February 8, 2011

  • Dave E.

    Kurt - that would be TOTALLY awesome.

    I run Node.js.sfbay and would like to do a "Hands On Express" workshop. Can you host around the 22nd of March?

    February 8, 2011

  • Truedat

    Hi Nick. Awesome, I'll leave the format open to you. Plan on a 10 minute overview of the technology, 5-10 minutes demo, and save rest for Q & A.

    @TrueDat - I've got something to present as a real working app in socket (on mobile Webkit). Just need a place to do it!

    February 7, 2011

  • Truedat

    Also, open call to anyone using Socket.IO in the wild for a real application that you've deployed or are in the process of deploying. I'd like to have a few short 10min presentations of such projects covering the technical overview + 20 min for demo and Q & A. Please let me know if you have something to present.

    February 6, 2011

  • Truedat

    Kevin, would be happy to have some help on meetup days to deal with logistics on site (setup, signins, etc.)

    February 6, 2011

  • Dave E.

    Thanks. I believe the precise code was "Connecting people who can't code with people who shouldn't."

    February 5, 2011

  • Kevin M.

    I'm poor, new to SF, new to SS JS, and so on, but I'm really excited about this group and if there is anything I can do to help out, let me know!

    February 5, 2011

  • Dave E.

    Traditionally meetups get sponsors fairly quickly - I wouldn't count on initial expenses being part of the picture for more than a few months.

    February 5, 2011

  • Dave E.

    I agree its not optimal. I have inquiries into Parisoma as well - but
    it does seem that $250 is pretty much the going rate for space.

    I am hoping that once we prove we can pull off these meetings we can
    get Joyent to cover the location costs so I don't see us being hit up
    for more then two or three of these monthly fees.

    Also I still have hopes we can get into CBS once Mike and Ryan get in the same room.

    February 5, 2011

  • Truedat

    And Dave, you should create some t-shirts as fundraisers with your famous sayings: "Drupal.org: connecting people who can't do anything with people who can't code.". Hilarious.

    February 5, 2011

  • Truedat

    Dave, let's brainstorm on this. I'd rather put the $250 budget for food and beer ;) . Serving food for 10 meetup attendees runs between $5/head-$20. I'm going to check into another space next week nearby AOE.

    February 5, 2011

  • Dave E.

    Truedat: the Hub has a gallery with seats and a screen for $250 - I'll go halfies if we pass the hat at the front.

    February 5, 2011

  • Truedat

    Probably will shoot for an SF location. Looking at alternatives right now.
