We’re a fun, friendly gathering for web people of all sorts — developers, designers, producers, friends of people whose nephew makes websites on weekends. We’ll probably be a bit geeky, we want you to be too.
All are welcome to Build Guild. Some attendees bring their significant others from time to time, and we’ve even seen a couple kids (if your venue allows it). We just want people that want to be there.
There are no talks, no presentations, and no topics forced upon people to discuss. People show up, they grab a drinks if they want one, find a hand to shake are start chatting.
Build Guild is a low-to-no-pressure environment.
People do network with one another at Build Guilds, but it’s not your typical networking event. It’s low-key, laid-back, and much more focused on sharing stories over a beer than a business-card free-for-all. We’ve had the occasional pushy recruiter show up here and there, but ten minutes and a beer later, they’re laid back just like everyone else.
Build Guild provides the least amount of structure needed to get people regularly chatting with one another face-to-face.
