Hello everyone out there in uWeb Land! Over the last few months Doug Chestnut and I have been working on founding a Google Developer Group for Central Virginia. Earlier this month, I traveled out to Mountain View, CA to the Googleplex to attend the 2015 GDG North American Summit to take (speechless) speaker training, learn tips and tricks to help bring together a successful community, learn about how Google will support our community, and network with other GDG organizers in our region. I believe we now have the resources and support we need to launch our first meeting either in late March or early April! Here is our Google Plus profile in addition to our Meetup.com profile, which you may want to follow to stay up to date about upcoming events or opportunities for how you can be involved.
I am sending out this communication because we are identifying the date of our first meeting at OpenSpace on The Corner and we want to poll approximately how many uWebbers out there would be interested in attending, and what day of the week would work best for everyone. Please indicate your preferences in the poll below, and I will get back with everyone on the exact date of our first official meeting, who our first speaker will be and what topic will be covered. Feel free to email me with any specific comments about dates. Thanks for your interest and Doug and I look forward to learning and sharing with all of you!
