    Hello Everyone... Quick Q, can we even have this Meetup setup some time in Bothell ? Would be very much helpful as we've many aspiring engineers and starters willing to attend this Meetup and cannot make it just because of the distance and travel ....

      What kind of Meetup you thinking of for Bothell? I don't have any reach in Bothell Bhavani. All of our hosts and sponsors are located centrally in Seattle. Speakers are generally located close to Downtown Seattle.

      In the past I've attempted to put on a talk format event in Bellevue with OfferUp. But the bulk of our membership had a hard time reaching it. We actually doubled-up, thanks to our speaker K Lars Lohn agreeing to speak in Bellevue and Seattle on back to back nights. Karen and Vik run a Programming Night in Bellevue. Can you make it to Downtown Bellevue?
