    Hi Chris, I was invited to a group called OC Sencha today. Our company is in Long Beach, so OC isn't really our vibe... and I suggested to the group manager that they rename it to SoCal Sencha so we could all benefit from the rich dev communities between LA, LB, OC, SM, and SD. He said there was already a meetup called SoCal Sencha in San Diego, so that's why he went with OC Sencha. That seems short sighted. Sencha's dev community is growing, but I don't think its a good idea to divide at such a scale. Anyway, I'd like to go back to that guy and suggest that Irvine (where he's from) is a good central spot for LA and SD Sencha folks, and we should really focus on extending the SoCal Sencha group north. I can represent LB. There's a strong group in LA that we can invite. So this all depends on what you have in mind for SoCal Sencha. Is it just a San Diego thing? By the way, I'm from SD, grew up in Point Loma and Clairemont, and there's a couple devs in SD that I've been pushing toward Sencha. So I'm trying to think bigger and consider the value of a larger network. Thoughts?

    I've always envisioned SoCal Sencha to be for ALL of Southern California, not just San Diego. I was talking to another guy in the OC area a while back that was looking to start a group, and I told him that I would gladly make him an admin for our meetup group so he can manage meetups for the OC region. I'll extend the same invitation to you and your friends from LA as well, if you want to have an official meetup group, sponsored by Sencha, let me know. I'm be happy to add you in as an admin so you can schedule meetups for developers in your area. This saves you from having to pay the meetup organizer fees, as well as strengthens our group as a whole. Eventually, maybe we can even have cross-regional meetups. Let me know your thoughts, and welcome to the group!
