We have a lot of work to do. At our current rate of growth, I suspect that every man, woman, and child in Portland will be a group member in 8.6 years. But even if that doesn't occur, we have an excellent opportunity (as Portland's largest tech meetup by about 200%) to continue leading trends this upcoming year. So come one, come all, and partake in the following activities:
Brainstorming about the next few months topics. Volunteers to head up some SIGs (special interest groups) - some people like beer, some like coffee, there's no reason we can't host both kinds of meetups. Help craft a style all our own. We have an embarrassment of riches where talented designers and brilliant programmers are concerned... it's kind of weird we don't have a website full of useful resources and showcasing our collective talents. Should we reach out to other local groups? What about hosting a small web & design conference in Portland? Any other excellent ideas Sorry for the short notice, but please come if you can make it. We need you there!
