(1) Plan for Regularly Scheduled Meetups

 

Oren Salomon has recently opened a coworking space in North Dallas (arapaho & tollway) and has graciously offered the use of his spaces for this group's Meetups. There is very fast Wi-Fi (50 mpbs down, 5 mbps down), plenty of outlets and extension cords and about 5 different rooms to sprawl out across if certain groups want to work in their own room. The great thing about this space as compared to others is that there is a lot of subdivided space to break out into, but very easy to reconvene as well. Food and drinks are more than welcome. We could also look into ordering a few pizzas from the Dominos next door too.


The coworking space is called Dallas Fort Work and more information can be found on Facebook at:  facebook.com/fortwork­


For the first Meetup at the coworking space in North Dallas we will have a drawing for a choice of free Microsoft XBox points or an Amazon gift card (winner's choice!). More details as we get the meeting schedule set.


To get things rolling we would like for folks to help us plan meetups that would best serve the needs of the group. We are proposing two regular meetups a month with one on a weeknight at 7 pm and one about two weeks later on a Saturday at 10 am.

 

Help us choose the best weeknight for you! Please take a minute to vote in the poll:
