If you were to start your own web design meetup in your local area, what would you need help with to get it going?
Probably a list of people who are interested in a meetup, and what topics are they interested in.
Was thinking about doing a Webflow meetup in Wellington. I know of a few people that use Webflow, but would like to see if there is potentially the opportunity to find on here from Wellington that use Webflow.
Wellington, New Zealand btw…
Yep, a UK meet-up would be good too, and whilst we can post on here to garner interest, it would be good if Webflow could provide some general stats on geographical location/amount of users…
Even better, tie in meetups with staff visits?
One thing that @anais and I will be working on is helping community members start and grow their own local Webflow meetup.
If you want to start your own right now, go for it. But we’ll have details soon about how the official Webflow team can help you all out
Thanks for helping spread the word.
Free pizza helps.
Free pizza ALWAYS helps @susanmacphee
More seriously - thanks for your replies to this guys and galls! We’d really love to hear from as many of you as possible on this topic, as it’ll help us figure in what ways we can help you set that up. One thing that I’d love to know more about is how many of you out there have been to a webflow meetup or are interested in going to one/organising one?
Do you all know anyone who has held a Webflow meetup before? let us know!
If it helps, I’ve organized the Boston Drupal user group and also found Design 4 Drupal, Boston which is an web design annual event.
I’m willing to do something similar for Webflow since I use it so much.
That being said, it’s a good model of software community to research:
Here’s a listing of events, could see something similar for Webflow: https://www.drupical.com/
Thanks @susanmacphee that’s really helpful! I’ll have a look, and I’m sure it could be good inspiration for us indeed. It may be a little while before we make offline events our priority, but when we do get there I want to make sure that we do this the right way
I’d like to set one up in Manchester, England and we just need beer, Pizza & about £50 for venue hire
Hey @PixelGeek, i guess we need to know who is working on webflow close to us/in our country.
Right now i have no idea how many French we are for example
A Webflow map of all forum users would be cool
Only if location is private by default. lol
I think the biggest issue probably is (at least in the US [and apart from privacy]) that users are not very likely to be close together.
this would be cool to do as an opt-in thing. We can easily make a custom Google Map
I just started a Wellington Webflow Meetup group and we got 24 members in a few days, so now I am on to organising the first meetup in the next few days.
