This is the only meetup group I'm in so I have nothing to compare it to. Of the two meetups I've attended with this group it's been emphasized that newbies should be encouraged to join and attend. Of the newbie questions I've asked, nobody has rolled their eyes ;o) For me, it's a good place to get the questions to the answers you're looking for.
