With people working with developer relations, leading busy lives, it can sometimes be hard to find a good time for a meetup, syncing schedules and more. That’s why I’m glad we finally managed to find a date for the speaker of this upcoming Geek Meet!

Geek Meet March 2007 summary

Last Thursday we had another Geek Meet, and as always these days, it was a fair amount of people showing up. This time, for the majority of the people present, it was actually their first Geek Meet. It’s great to see new faces, and the same time, I hope that the bunch of regulars who had to cancel this meeting will be back at the next one, providing to an even bigger group!

Geek Meet success!

Last night we held the first Geek Meet in Stockholm. In my experience, it was an immense success, if for nothing else, at least compared to my expectations.

Pretty much everyone that had signed up actually came, about 17 persons in total. After a rough start with a lot of unexpectedly locked doors in the building, people getting lost, one person held up by a robbery in downtown Stockholm etc, everyone seemed to really enjoy it.

Geek meet in Stockholm

Updated location!

The geek meet has gotten a sponsor that offers a place to be, food and drink. Not bad, eh? :-) The new location is: adocca entertainment, Södermälarstrand 57B, floor 6, and the time is 19.00.

Ok, this idea might crash and burn so hard, therefore I just felt I had to do it! :-)

The idea is to have a very informal gathering of people located in, or visiting, the Stockholm area who are interested in web standards, semanctics, accessibility etc. It will be a time for people to meet and discuss, get to know people and share experiences. The meeting will take place on April 25th at 17.00, most likely at my employer’s office in Kungsgatan adocca entertainment, Södermälarstrand 57B, floor 6, and the time is 19.00.

Does this sound interesting to you? If yes, please write a comment letting me know if you’re coming!

So, if this doesn’t fail miserably, I really look forwarding to meeting you then! :-)
