Alright gang, we're all set! Those who I've met so far have been very interesting and involved in a wide variety of startups. The PantheaCon meetup supersedes the regular February meetup if they would occur on the same weekend. Travelling the Bay on the ferries for a few hours. I am not familiar enough with the area yet to make any suggestions so let's start off with People interested and suggestions for where we could meet. There are quite a few of us Bay Area Members active now so it's about time we organised a meetup.
. Regarding places I know even less than you about where to go. Please use this page to connect with other local Wikipedians! There are currently no required dues to attend the regular meetup, although donations are appreciated at the annual PantheaCon meetup for the food, drink, and swag. Bay area wiki enthusiasts have been gathering since at least 2007. Just make sure you have plenty of changes with you for parking meters! It's right at the bottom of the Golden Gate Bridge.
They are there not just to meet some of the sharpest up-and-comers in Silicon Valley but help you find your feet and make sure you're aware of others out there with similar interests and shared goals. There are free places on the left of that road a short distance away. The restaurant has a great happy hour menu and a view of the Bay Bridge worthy of our special guest, Andrew Aziz, Ph. You can eat your heart out cheap with many options. Add your name to a list, announce a planned event here, or! D himself, so please show up, try to be on time so that they don't give our tables away to one of the 20 tech startups that will also be there, and bring your trading questions and concerns. The meetup is primarily social in nature, and is usually held at a local coffee shop or park, rotating through various locations around the bay. Check out the San Francisco engineering meetup group , or.
I would like to add Fort Point to the list. What I can suggest for later spring would be best is to try to do a photographic meetup on Hakone Gardens in Saratoga, close to Palo Alto Well I have never done a shoot before. I've only been to a few of the events, so I'm less able to speak to the quality of the people who attend. Just wanted to send out a heads up that despite the demise at least until further notice of , the is still going. It will be a tremendous help when we update our website later on this summer.
We would like to thank left to right Logan, Lillian, Alex, Nicole, Su, Sarah, Shirley, and Andrew who had to leave early and not in the group photo for all your amazing feedback and support. I think they open only Thurs-Sun. Did I say they serve beer on the ferries? Following the September 10, 2016 meetup, this group moved from to a private announcement list hosted on Arethinn's domain. I am going to be stressed as hell till the 16th of February cos we have 2 important deadlines at work but I can always try to find a spot for the meetup. If you are in the area or visiting and interested in joining the meetup, see. We are hoping to have another meetup in the near future.
But again I am used to doing that on a bike so as far as walking. You can walk from the Fort right onto the Bridge itself! Maybe if enough people are interested, we could also have a regular night out, meal and chat, every month or so. There is also a Bay Area social group I have just signed onto it, might be another way of coordinating things for the future. We apologize to those of you who tried to attend but we were unable accept due to the limited space. No dues will be charged for the PantheaCon meetup, but a donation to help cover food and drink would be appreciated, and if you are not already attending the con, please note the caveats about parking in the event description link. Fort Point is in the Presidio area : a vast park that you can almost shoot anything on it.
Thanks Gary for letting me know about this! If you're new to the area and interested in startups, the pair are some of the most welcoming, helpful folks I've met in a group. I am not sure exactly where to go. It is not necessary to attend PantheaCon itself to attend this meetup. I'll review 106 Miles as soon as I get the chance to attend one of the events ; Maybe tomorrow. I would love for someone with more experience than I choose someplace.
There is a solid community of contributors around here; maybe related to the proximity of Silicon Valley and all the tech-focused creativity that brings; the rich non-profit presence in the area; and the presence, since 2008, of the Wikimedia Foundation's global headquarters. We are also still doing the annual event at PantheaCon; this year is. We can follow the 19th Avenue South to Clement Street. The meetups alternate between the second Saturday and the second Sunday of the month. A special annual meetup is also held at on Presidents' Day weekend, usually on Saturday, if Arethinn and Celebron are able to book a room at the convention hotel. The room number is announced after Arethinn and Celebron check into the hotel.
