Community Is Always Local: Launching Meetups - Brian Proffitt, RedHat

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There is nothing like the personal touch. Technology has given us the capability to conduct chat, audio, and video meetings from nearly anywhere in the world. But human beings still like to meet face-to-face. The benefits of social interaction are hard to dispute--after all, you're at LinuxCon, aren't you?

Large events like LinuxCon NA are great, but they are not exactly something you can put together overnight. Better, then, to host smaller, more frequent events to keep a community engaged. Enter the meetup--an economical and relatively easy event to host at a company, academic, or popular local venue.
