Every Friday, we get together and work on whatever projects/jobs we might be working on. This group includes remote professionals, local professionals, and students who have projects to work on. It is social, though we are all working on something, so we don't chat the whole time. It is a good place to cross-pollinate ideas and give people a shared space to work. It is a community event.
We meet at Sweetwaters on Washington every Friday from 9AM until 5PM. People come and go all day long, and we often grab lunch together.
