Tonight we had a group of 16 Austin, TX Indie Hackers meet up at the Capital Factory (a local Coworking/business event space) to talk about some of our business successes and failures. Thanks to @TrevorMcKendrick for setting it up.
Long story short, this is a fairly popular site, with people from all around the world. Indie Hackers are out there, and meeting up with each other face to face to discuss things is a great experience. Depending on format, it might also be good to get used to public speaking in an understanding atmosphere, which is good for all of us. Tonight I got up and did a speech and Q&A, and got a TON of great feedback on all the things I could be doing. This sort of thing is invaluable for us.
So, have you been to an Indie Hackers meetup lately? Would you be willing to put one together if it doesn't exist near you? Would you go if one existed? What do you think of meetups in general? Let's talk about stuff.
