Thanks to those of you who joined us at our first ever happy hour. It was great to hear more about your businesses and perspectives on the web industry. We even got a little lecture on the greatest pioneers in the web industry from Gregg.
With the first happy hour out of the way, Dru and I are plotting ways to make this group the most effective (and lucrative) opportunity for our web tech community.
Stay posted as Dru & I will be introducing:
- Promotional opportunities to snag some work or great contractors through creative networking approaches during our happy hours.
- Regular feeds to enlighten our web techs on networking and etc... as we share articles/links, highlight members, and post contract opportunities/needs.
- Great happy hours locations which include great food, billiards, games, and etc.... We're becoming snooty happy hour conisseurs in search of great venues to kick back and have fun after work.
This meetup is your community too. So feel free to send me your ideas, feedback, questions, and especially your smart remarks.
Hello Fellow Web Techs,
Whether you're at the office haggling with the server company or at home writing code in your underwear...we all could use an excuse to get out and grab a beer. And what better place to make business connections and swap cards than a happy hour! The Denver-Metro Web Techs Happy Network Hour was hatched to boost the spirit and careers of our community of web friends.
- We meet the 3rd Thursday of every month, alternating between Denver & the DTC areas. - Fun locations which include great happy hour menus, billiards, and more. - An exclusive directory of members which is shared at meetups. - Notifications at meetups of job opportunities and members' businesses.
- Our meetup's directory will be online. - Happy Network Hour eNews (including job listings, highlights of members, and juicy links and articles).
This meetup is hosted by Dru Shockley, founder of Focus on the Vine and a conisseur of creating community. So whether you're fresh off the college boat of computer science or a web designer who remembers a time before Internet Explorer, you are most welcomed to attend.
So come on out and bring your colleagues. But please...throw some clothes on first.
