    Thank you all for attending the meeting. As we mentioned yesterday, please use this forum to provide any feedback from last night. We would love to know:
    -How often to have these meetings (quarterly, monthly)
    -Topic ideas & requests
    -Is there demand for a marketers track vs. a developer track
    We hope you enjoyed last night's first meeting & we look forward to seeing you again!
    Thank you,
    Celeste Lewis

      Quarterly should be sufficient for frequency, and I also like the idea of dev and marketing together as long as there is equal coverage for both. Otherwise, a rotation of focus/topic by meeting could work. Any plans for rotating the meeting location?

      I vote for quarterly meet ups with information for both marketing/dev.

    I would suggest quarterly - at least in the beginning. Better that there is sufficient "meat" for each session and a lot of people than risking not enough interest content and participants because the meets are too close.

    Agree on both having tech and marketing - especially for those of us who try to cover both

    And finally - thanks for getting this going and thanks to the organizers - it was great and I am looking forward to next time.

    Nice meetup, I enjoyed the pizza and the beer :-) To cover everyone, let there be something for newbies, intermediate and advanced developers, designers and marketers. Monthly is good for the above and we can have quarterly talks on what is new/coming.

    I enjoyed the meetup, so thanks for putting it together. I think quarterly would be best. And I like having a developer and marketing track. The Marketing teams love to ask developers how to do something, so it's always helpful to see what they're looking at and what sort of info you can anticipate them asking.

    I enjoyed the netting last night. I'm open to monthly or quarterly also I personal prefer a developer track. If it's combined with marketers either would like to know in advance.

  • Alicia G.

    I agree with Aren. Quarterly seems about right. Dev and marketing together are ok, as long as they are clearly laid out in advance and people could attend the portions they want. Also agree that basic technology review would be good, along with challenges and workarounds. Thanks!
