I was curious whether there were any local Stack Overflow meetups yet (in a similar vein to jQuery meetups). The idea is that Stack Overflow people within a geographical area would get together at a local bar or something and talk code, SO, or whatever other common interests are shared amongst the attendees.
This brings up a few questions:
- If there are already meetups happening, what's the "official site"?
- If not, I'd love to start a Stack Overflow Philly meetup and meet some of my fellow community members.
- What would be the best way to spread the word to the users in my geographical area? The first thing that comes to mind would be asking for a shout out on the podcast, but unfortunately at the time of writing the podcast is going dark for a little while and is to return with a new format.
