Sunday @ Vineapple

The Alley is closed this weekend, so going back to our old haunt. It's a coffee shop, so you can come/go whenever. Also, see the wiki for a list of resources.

    It was a comfortable space with some really smart and friendly people, once I finally got to talking to them. It really suffered from lack of icebreakers for me as a new person. For the first hour or so, it was just me sitting all alone feeling really awkward, having no one to work with. I had only cursory introductions to the people sitting next to me. I feel that the organizers can do much to help not only new people fit in, but to help those people get into groups or pairs based on relevant interests/projects/problems. I had no way of knowing who could help me, or who I could help, until I had to go one by one and introduce myself, something as an introvert I find very difficult. I'd suggest nametags / stickers that list your tech stack, or possibly paper signs for people to aggregate around a certain topic. Another idea is having people sign into IRC or Google Hangout on arrival, so we can self organize without the nervousness of face to face. I think there's a lot of potential.

    Hi guys, I'm new to the meetup and having trouble finding the group. No one here seems to be speaking to one another.

      One of the downsides of meeting at a crowded coffee shop. Come find us at the picnic table - I'm wearing a green t-shirt!
