About Umbraco meetups

 

What

Besides the full-blown Umbraco festivals, there are also a lot of casual meetups. Meetups are smaller events that are organized by the Umbraco community. A meetup typically takes place on a given day after business hours. It may be hosted by an agency in their offices, or simply in the local pub.

Why

The Umbraco meetups are a great way to stay connected with the local community and share your knowledge and make new friends.

There are a lot of benefits to starting as well as attending an Umbraco meetup. A meetup offers the chance to: 

  • Learn from peers and speakers, experienced Umbracians as well as beginners 
  • Exchange information and best practices
  • Network and connect with other Umbracians
  • Do a talk or showcase a new solution/project 
  • Get feedback on your (first) talk or solution/project

How

Starting a new meetup can be done in a few steps:

  • Get in touch and share your ideas about the new meetup group. 
  • We will help you set up the group, cover the subscription fees, and promote the kickoff meetup.  
  • The group will be part of the Umbraco Meetups Network.

You need help from other meetup organizers or HQ:

  • Chat with other Umbraco meetup organizers on Slack by joining the channel meetup-organisers
