Episode 101:Speaking at Local Meetups


  • Subject of meetup
  • People at the meetup
  • Go to one before speaking
  • If you don't have a good meetup, start one, but don't be the first to speak
  • Good places to host a meetup
  • Good places to announce a meetup
  • Scaling/growing your meetup (as you grow, make sure there isn't an in-group and an out-group)
  • Avoiding Groupthink in Meetups (Creative Mornings: Someone manages it for a fixed term and then passes it off)
