Discuss the future of Melb Dev Meetup

As the new organiser of this group I'm holding an informal catchup to discuss the future of Melbourne Developer Meetup.

This is your chance to meet me, and other members and have your say on what you want to see. You'll also get a sneak peek on one of our potential venues (Cafe Maison Ama Lurra). We'll have the place all to ourself!

    Great meet up last night! Enjoyed the chats and beers and learnt heaps. Shame I had to head off. Look forward to the next one and keeping you all updated on my journey.
    Thanks for organising Drew!

    Thanks for all those that were able to make it down tonight! It was great meeting you and catching up over a beer. We've got enough interest to hold an official talk, with an agenda and speakers and everything ... so stay tuned!

    Also if anyone wants to catch up for lunch or coffee at the cafe you're always welcome :)

      Thanks Drew for organizing this Meetup. It was great meeting you and all the other great folks. More than anything, it was very uplifting for me. I made some amazing friends! Thanks.

    Hey - I'll see if I can make it tomorrow. If you want to get the word out to engineers, there's a hackathon this weekend that I've got a code for (100% off = MELhack). Looks pretty cool. http://bit.ly/13xHlO6

      Ben if you're close to CBD some time and you're free for a coffee or beer I'd love to touch base with you at some point.

    • Ben

      Sure thing. I'll see what I can do about making it on the 16th. Just a busy week after hours that week.

    Looking forward to it. Nice one Drew keeping this alive

      Will be great to see you again Dan. I'm trying to line up a few surprises for the guys :)

    I reckon both Wed and Thu would work for me. So, whatever is more convenient for everyone else.

    May 6, 2013

    • Drew K.

      I haven't had any suggestions for other dates so I'm sticking to Thursday night. Would be great to see you there.

  • Vinay B.

    Will there be any specific agenda for this meeting!!

    May 4, 2013

    • Drew K.

      This first one will simply be a meet and greet, and we'll chat about the format for future meetings, and nerd out. Unless I hear back from others on a better date I'll keep it as advertised. Venue TBD but will be a city venue.

    Depending on date, I'd love to come along and meet new people :)

      I look forward to meeting you all in any decided date ... :)

    What does everyone think about Thurs, May 16 to meet up for a few drinks? (thats around three weeks from now).

    April 23, 2013

  • Christian L.

    I'd be keen to join in. However, I don't think Friday is a great choice. People tend to have plans on Friday nights and often that does imply going home straight away after work. Furthermore, the bars tend to be quieter Mon-Wed.

    April 20, 2013

    • Drew K.

      Any night works for me really so I'm happy to do a catchup early in the week. Hopefully we can get a few people together.

      April 20, 2013

  • Drew K.

    I'm thinking after work drinks on a Friday night might be a good idea. A quiet bar in the city somewhere. How's everyones availability over the next few weeks?

    April 20, 2013

  • Drew K.

    Quick Update: I have several venues and talks of Pizza/Beer sponsorship from several companies. I've also talked with a number of individuals interested in giving talks ... now I just need to find out what my fellow developers would like in a meetup!

    April 17, 2013

  • Ben

    Yeah I've been paying the dues for a couple years, and never got around to organising anything at all last year. Would be happy for someone to take it over but I didn't get any responses so it'll be closing down. I'm going to be away from next week til the 8th May. There's still a few good (and active) groups for Melb devs - depending on your pref.

    April 17, 2013

    • Anthony C.

      I know a few people who would be keen to or interested in sponsoring. Which venue were you looking at, Drew? I know some peeps at inspire9 who can hook us up with some space.

      April 17, 2013

    • Drew K.

      Inspire9 was my first choice :) I also have a second/backup venue lined up. All sounds good so far, step one will be to catchup and see if this thing has legs (ie people want to go, what they want to hear from talks etc)
