Welcome to jQuery NYC! I hope to develop this group and put together our first meetup as soon as we have a handful of members. In the meantime check out my Web Development workshop meetup at http://www.meetup.com/WebDevelop/ where I will also cover jQuery.
jQuery NYC is a group that is focused on jQuery, jQuery plugins, jQuery plugin authoring, and jQuery integration with other libraries, core JS, etc. While we are physically located in New York City, we want to connect all jQuery communities worldwide.
We also have some groups that are our friends in that they collaborate with us in one way or another. Here is the list, and I encourage you to visit them and join them if they fit your interests:
