Emberists and future-Emberists from South-eastern Michigan unite! Grab your laptops and head on out to Northville!
We're kicking off an amazing Ember-filled 2014 with our first meetup. The event is still a little TBD, (as is the general format) as we'd like to take a community-driven/organic approach - keep what's working and change what isn't, and incorporate the community's feedback.
As we firm up all the event details, we'll make sure to keep this updated.
A little back-story on what we're hoping to do here as a group. The hope is to host meetings frequently enough that everyone feels like they're a part of building this community. Rather than feel like you're attending, we want you to feel like you're a part of something. This is your chance to learn from others, teach others, ask your questions, and stay informed on exciting things! And, we're all a part of that. Additionally, the goal is make sure everyone feels like they're engaged in the discussion by encouraging a workshop format. Rather than sit still for an hour, half-listening, half-reading-reddit, let's all DO something. So, again, bring your laptops.
Even if you're not a coder, you're invited! One of the ideas we are tossing around is hosting more goal-oriented meetups where we actually try to accomplish something large over the course of many weeks. This could be interesting to graphic artists, web designers, entrepreneurs, etc. This is still waaaay TBD, but hopefully we can get enough interest soon that we go for it.
More details to come, but we're really looking forward to hanging out with the Ember-crowd from the area!
