What we're about

Grab a beer and join Big Fish for lively conversations about all things related to the craft of designing and developing software. That could be software architecture, UI/UX design, coding, QA, team or stakeholder engagement. The evening's conversation topics are created on the spot by those who attend.

What to Expect

A Lean Beer or Lean Coffee is a gathering structured without an agenda. Discussion topics are chosen by the attendees, at the start of the meeting, via a vote. Lean meetings are common in tech and agile circles, but the Lean format can be applied to any meeting, anywhere.

Our meetups will take place at craft breweries around Tampa Bay.

Join us, have fun, enjoy a beer and talk to other quality-minded software professionals!

First 15 minutes: Grab a name badge, buy your beer and say "Hello "
Next 15 minutes: Create discussion topics | Vote for your favorites
Final hour: Discussion (top-voted topics, 5 to 10 minutes on each topic)

It's all about the conversation:
This is a small group, conversation style Meetup. We depend on those who attend contributing to the discussion. We understand that not all talking points will be for everyone, but if you prefer to sit back and listen to presentations this isn't the Meetup to attend.

To ensure our members have a good time with like-minded software craftspeople, our Meetup is not open to recruiters or sales people.

This meetup is organized by the team at Big Fish - we turn revolutionary ideas into reality through custom software design and development.
