Port Townsend Web Developers Meetup

Port Townsend Web Developers Meetup

Meetup #12 — First Anniversary Party!

Twelve months ago, a surprisingly large group of local software developers made their way the Colab for the first installment of the Port Townsend Web Developers meetup. We picked out seats in the slightly cramped conference room, furtively munched on pizza and sipped the beer (which was generously provided by our sponsors), shyly introduced ourselves, and listened to an enlightening talk on PhoneGap. The meetups that followed proved popular even after the initial novelty wore off, in no small part due to the wealth of amazing knowledge our speakers had to offer on topics such as React, Firebase, Service Workers, CSS, and even underwater robots! I can't say how pleased I am at the amazing community that we have built together through our monthly get-togethers.

So for the next meetup, we're going to do something a little different. Instead of doing the usual presentation format, we're going to pat ourselves on our backs, bask in the glory of our collective accomplishments, and throw ourselves a little party.

What will happen at this party, you might ask?

To this I respond: you never quite know what will happen at a good party. But I can tell you that at the very least, you can count on these things:

An ample supply of delicious beer, on ice
Plentiful pizza
A frickin' raffle! (see updated prize list below)
Some rad music
An NES emulator with retro controllers on the projector
A bunch of cool developer gals and dudes
Powerful party vibes

I'm hoping to get as many people out to this as we can to maximize festivity and to have a sort of a show of collective strength of our developer community. I'd love to see some new faces in addition to the usual suspects, so please do reach out to your friends and colleagues and bring them out, too!

Hope to you see you there on Wednesday, October 17th, at 5:30pm at the Port Townsend Colab! It'll be a lot of fun. Promise.
