This past weekend, our little meetup passed the 1000 member mark. That is really remarkable and is a testament to the community that Dan Dean, Tony Bentley and others have pulled together over the years here in Seattle. This is really awesome.
I thought I'd drop you all a quick note to talk about one way we can keep the momentum up and make organizing awesome events easier: sponsorships. You can't have a great event without awesome content and good people, but sponsors enable us to:
- Secure better venues
- Pay for food and drink
- Provide benefits to our members
Twilio (the company I work for) has been a sponsor of several SeattleJS meetups and has been a big supporter of the JS community here in Seattle. Twilio is a fun tool for JS developers to play with: we have a Node.js library
for server-side application and a WebRTC VOIP library
for browser apps.
I worked with the team down in SF and I'd like to announce a cool perk for SeattleJS members:
$10 of free credit when you upgrade your account.
Just create a Twilio account and upgrade it. Shoot me an email and I'll load the additional credit into the account. That's it!
Become a Sponsor
If you work for a technology company that is interested in sponsoring SeattleJS (either by sponsoring our events or providing useful perks for developers) please let me know. We have a couple of upcoming meetups that we could definitely use sponsors for:
- 8/14 - Learning jQuery
- 9/18 - SeattleJS September
Ok, that's it from me. Look forward to seeing you all soon!
