I am on the Eastside, Factoria area. Been hoping for a closer Meetup
because there a lots of good locations, like all three Libraries,
Downtown Bellevue, Newport Way and Downtown Issaquah ( all three have
large sound enclosed meeting spaces with WiFi), even Crossroads which
has a KCLS branch for Wifi, decent food but noisy.
As for bug tracking for clients, I am puzzled. Usually you have
bug/defect tracking for code and then issue/help tracking for customers.
Although the workflows may be similar, they are two different things.
Bug/defect is usually for internal or peer developers. If you are
looking for that, I would recommend something that is integrated with
your code and has file/documentation features and that would be TRAC or
Redmine, which I currently use because it easily supports multiple
projects and flexible group/permissions.
If you are looking for a solution for the general customer base, then
there are a bunch of choices ranging from free to Kayako.
