Denver MongoDB User Group Message Board › Are you ready for a good night?! (free beer, food, and tech)
|A former member||
Hey everyone! We're really excited about this our first meetup tomorrow!!
We're officially opening the doors at 5:00 and we would LOVE for anyone to come up, socialize and hang out before the event (which starts at 6:00). We have wii, fooseball, air hockey x2, and darts.. PLUS free drinks (keg + variety beers + others) and food (sandwiches + deserts + snacks).
Here's the not-so-official schedule / aka, we're winging it
5:00 Social, hangout, have a beer, swap stories or cards
6:00 Grab a seat, thanks to our sponsors, announcements
6:30 MongoDB 101: An Introduction
7:00 MongoDB Schema Design in Principle
7:30 MongoDB Sharding and Replication
8:00 Social, hangout, have more beer or snacks
9:00 Close up and say goodnight (or to Breck Brewery for more drinks)
We have some really awesome sponsors for this first event, and expect to keep sponsors actively involved in future events (if you know any future sponsors for location, people, or swag feel free to send them our way at firstname.lastname@example.org). Be sure to give our sponsors some social love, and thank them for their time and contributions, because without sponsors, meetups and events can be really lame!

A quick call to action:
Promote this event!! We want to get the word out about Mongo because.. well the technology explains itself.. simplicity, storage and scalability; the three things a DB should be without the headache. I would love to see our event packed because it means more social, vibrant and interesting! Plus we have a lot of beer, and I need my employees [somewhat] coherent the next day, so we'll need help killing off the keg at least! Go RSVP and get your buddies to do the same. Promote it on twitter with #mongodenver and push it up anywhere else you see fit.
The next Mongo MUG will meet at Cluster which is an awesome creative workspace just a mile northeast of this first event location, which means free parking and more room to do fun things like backflips, skate tricks, or whatever else you're into. We will be meeting for the next event on April 26th at Cluster Denver and we'll update the meetup group this week with that information so that you can RSVP soon!
