Geeks Group is a group of West MI geeks interested in technology and business. We gather to talk excitedly about our work, hobbies, and personal lives.
Who: People with technical interests (web developers, software developers, IT, etc.), and/or business interests (entrepreneurs, owners, marketers, etc.). All geeks welcome.
What: We talk about our professional and personal projects. There's no agenda, just casual conversation. We make connections, brainstorm ideas, and give each other advice.
Where: Usually New Holland Brewing, but we're open to meeting anywhere. Also on Google Groups: http://groups.google.com/group/geeks-group.
When: 3rd Tuesday of each month.
About Geeks Group:
Geeks Group was established in 2004 to get the local technical talent together to share ideas about the different things they are learning. Each event is nothing more than a (literal) dinner table style conversation - no presentations, no plans, no leader - just a community. Many of the people attending these events are talented entrepreneurs that are respected throughout the area and country. Having such talent in an area like West Michigan is a little outside of the norm. People within this group have not only chosen to build their businesses in Michigan but also build and foster new talent. The Geeks Group is an event that brings these individuals together while encourages new ideas and innovation.
