Organising your own OpenCoffee Club Meetup
Starting your own opencoffee meetup is very simple. Here is what we did:
- Decide on a time and place. The place should allow a small crowd to have noisy discussions as they roam around the place. Make it easily accessible. We chose 3pm Sunday mainly because there is less traffic — otherwise it is a pain driving through rush hour.
- Next you need to announce the meetup. We
- Posted about it in our blogs. Kiruba picked it up and posted it in his blog
- Sent a mail to the python, ruby and linux user groups
- For other cities, the local Barcamp, MoMo, LUG and other such groups are good places to announce the event
- Finally you need to turn up at the give time and place and let the event happen. We had a quick introduction at the beginning then broke for food/coffee and let the individual discussions happen.
