TWiki Meet-Ups

meetuplogo.gif TWiki meetups happen around the world to foster knowledge sharing and exchange ideas on how TWiki can be used effectively at the workplace. The meetups are geared towards wiki champions and TWiki users -- face to face meetings can be very inspiring and helpful!

TWiki user meetups are very informal, just meet other TWiki champions, have a beer (or orange juice), chat about what you do with TWiki and get inspired! Let's start meetups around the world -- if you feel like meeting other TWiki-holics is a good idea then simply go for it and invite them for a local meet-up in a conference room, a pub, in your living room, or wherever you like. For example, the TWiki meetups in the Silicon Valley take place quarterly in a conference room of a company using TWiki; users present/demo 15 min each how they are using TWiki at work, followed by free form discussions with food and wine.

Let's strengthen our TWiki community by inviting wiki users and wiki champions to participate in our activities!

Regional TWiki User Meet-Ups

Create new Regional TWiki User Meet-Up

We invite you to create a local TWiki user meet-up in your area. This is a great way to mingle with wiki aficionados and to learn from each other what does/does not work when deploying a wiki at work. Invite people in your area, and ask them to possibly present how they are using TWiki.

Discussion

I do not like the idea of organizing this on a different website. I have to create an extra account, check out yet another website and so on. Why not doing this here on twiki.org? I just realized that Rod will be at the web 2.0 expo in Berlin but I completly missed this info here on twiki.org. Why? because it's not stated here, it's stated on website that has noting to do with twiki...

  • I posted it on this page on twiki.org on 2007-11-03, the day it was decided. -- PTh

-- CarloSchulz - 05 Nov 2007

Carlo is right, why not just create a new CommentPlugin template or a small TWikiApplication that allows to collect the same meta data as this meetup thingi? If you need the calendar view: Lynnwood could do this as described in HowToIntegrateWeekAndMonthCalendar. wink

Or at least get the dates from that external web site and display them in a nice TWiki table. smile Maybe by using their RSS feed with the HeadlinesPlugin or something.

(I moved above comments from TWikiMeetupTemplate)

The goal of the TWiki meetups is to get many users involved, also those who are not registered on TWiki.org. Meetup.com has millions of users. I think it makes sense to use it because of the exposure we get; we will be able to attract many more people.

We can make this flexible by enabling people to signup on TWiki.org or on Meetup.com.

I agree with Carlo, we don't need another site (R)(TM) to conduct our business do we?

-- KoenMartens - 06 Dec 2007

See my notes at TWikiMeetUpInSiliconValley on 03 Dec 2007 why it makes sense to give people a choice (twiki.org, Facebook or meetup.com.)

-- PeterThoeny - 06 Dec 2007

Has anyone been thinking about a meetup.com TWiki plugin? To sync to or with TWiki.org?

-- SvenDowideit - 05 Feb 2008

I created the TWikiUsersNLMailingList and TWikiUsersSFBayMailingList. Let me know if you would like to have a TWiki user mailing list for your region.
