    Hola a todos!

    Esperamos que los que no pudieron ir disfruten la grabación del evento, en la que se puede escuchar bien los consejos de Marcos a nosotros. Link:

    Vamos apostar en mantener la comunidad ya formada en MeetUp, pero como muchos ya recordaron, busquen anotarse antes en Eventbrite! :) De la próxima vez agregaremos en MeetUp el link para anotarse en Evenbrite.

    Yo no pude ir, una lástima, me quede con las ganas. Aclaro para que a otros no les pase lo mismo: Meetup NO es el medio para anotarse en estos eventos. Hay que registrarse en Eventbrite, desde meetup te mandan un email que dice que estas inscripto, te mandan un calendar invite muy lindo pero ojo que nada de eso tiene valor. Hay que hacer la inscripción en Eventbrite

    Porqué organizan por meetup si después nos vamos a tener que registrar por eventbrite. Ahora me quedé injustamente afuera. Esperare al próximo lamentablemente

    Pedimos disculpas por el inconveniente. El MeetUp es un medio de difusión y esta publicación se hizo por los organizadores del StartupGrind Global. A nivel local nos manejamos con Eventbrite.

    Espero todos logren anotarse para seguir recibiendo las invitaciones locales a través de Eventbrite.
