A group of web developers meets monthly to build web apps and learn how to do it right and fast using open source, web standards and various API (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google, Meetup and more).
The list of topics ranges from Security and Identity to Usability and Analytics. If you know a good topic we should discuss, please add it to the wiki, maybe even add some links to good articles / videos about it.
We also code web applications right at the meetings - using whatever we want, including, but not limited to Startup API open source project.
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.
