I’ve been running Geek Meet since 2006, and I felt it was time for a little upgrade in the way I handle registrations. Which means Geek Meet is now on Meetup.com!

Meeting people in person is a fantastic thing! To broaden one’s horizons, to learn things you never expected and to get friends for life. It was also one of the reasons I started Geek Meet back in 2006 and now I have an additional event!
All seats have been taken. Please write a comment to be put on a waiting list, there are always a number of cancellations, so there’s still a chance.
Douglas and I have talked about him speaking at Geek Meet a few times when we’re ran into each other at different conferences in the world, and we’ve said that if he’s nearby Sweden, we just make it happen. Now is that time!
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!
It’s finally time for another Geek Meet! Man, it’s been a while, but now it’s actually happening again!
Time for the last Geek Meet before summer! Happy to have a new perspective this time, and something we haven’t really covered before: accessibility.

Short notice, I know, but next Geek Meet will be March 4th! New sponsor, new premises!
Geek Meet has been moved to January 16th.
Time to announce the first Geek Meet of 2013! I had plans on doing it at the end of this year, but with Christmas and surrounding activities for a lot of people, I decided to have it early next year instead.
Time for another Geek Meet! If you’re not in Stockholm, you should make it here!
Finally, time for another Geek Meet here in Stockholm!

Time for the first Geek Meet this fall! Can you believe it’s been four months since the last one? This time around, it’s time to bring in a guest from the UK.
It is soon summer (Yay!) and about time for a last Geek Meet before a summer break!
Time for another Geek Meet, and this time, we’l be trying something new. 🙂
I know, I know, there has definitely been some time since the last Geek Meet. But believe me, this one will make up for the wait! 🙂
I hope you are all having some nice time off; I just wanted to take the time to reflect on 2009 and what it was like for me.
It’s time again, my friends! And this time, it will be even more fantastic! Are you ready? Are you READY?!
Yesterday we had Geek Meet Charity in Stockholm, and in my opinion, it was a great success!
It’s been some time since the last event, but man, are we making up for it this time! Time for Geek Meet Charity June 4th 2009!
Ready for a new Geek Meet, dear Swedes (and anyone else venturing a trip to Stockholm, Sweden) 🙂
The end of 2008 is near, and I felt it was time to summarize the passed year.
Tomorrow night, December 4th, is the time to get your geek-on! Geek Meet December 2008 will have a staggering 150 attendants, and thanks to our sponsor Creuna, all of them will be treated to free presentations by Chris Heilmann, together with complimentary pizza and beer.
But don’t fret if you cant be there. The event itself (all in English) will also be broadcast live over the Internet, so I gladly invite you to join us through cyberspace! The starting time is as at 18.30 Central European Time. That means 17.30 UK time, 12.30 PM US EST, 9.30 AM US PST.
See you tomorrow!
Time for a new Geek Meet, and this time we will have an extra treat for you! Christian Heilmann, Web Architect/Standards Evangelist at Yahoo UK (Chris’ blog, Chris’ Web Development Articles) will be flown in from the UK to Stockholm (courtesy of Creuna) to do two intriguing web development talks!
I hope you all have had a nice summer, and are up for another Geek Meet!
It’s about time for another Geek meet, don’t you think?
In the mood for a Geek Meet? January 24th 2008 it’s time again!
It’s been a while, but November 1st it’s time for yet another Geek Meet in Stockholm!
For anyone interested in Geek Meet, but living far up north in Sweden, there now seems to be an option. Damian is thinking about putting one together and is trying to find like-minded people. It will, it seems, most likely take place in SkellefteÃƒÂ¥ or UmeÃƒÂ¥, and you can visit his post A geek meet in Northern Sweden to sign up or express interest in general.
Wednesday night we had yet another Geek Meet in Stockholm, and this time we covered HTML 5 and XHTML.
Time for the last Geek Meet before the summer, and it will most likely be an intense one. 🙂
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!
Yes, people, it’s time again: get ‘yer geek on! March 29th we will have yet another Geek Meet with nice people, beer for our throats and pizza for our overworked bodies!
Last night we had yet another Geek Meet, Geek Meet January 2007, in Stockholm, and a staggering 40 people showed up! I’m really happy that people keep coming back as well as new ones getting interested and showing up.
And this time I thought we’d cater to everyones’ interests (well, as many as possible, at least), with a new addition to the concept.
Remember something called Geek Meet? People with a sincere interest in web development, always up for learning more and hanging out with like-minded? Well, fret no more! It’s time again! 🙂
Next Geek Meet will take place June 8th at adocca entertainment, SÃƒÂ¶dermÃƒÂ¤larstrand 57B, floor 6, and the time is 18.30. Please write a comment and provide a valid e-mail address if you know you can attend.
Don’t miss this one now! 🙂
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.
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, SÃƒÂ¶dermÃƒÂ¤larstrand 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, SÃƒÂ¶dermÃƒÂ¤larstrand 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! 🙂
