IH #3 was a cozy gathering for 6 Indie Hackers in my apartment, due to last minute cancellation at a coworking place 🙃
I love to see how everybody with their different backgrounds can help out in their own way.
This time we started with a round telling about our projects, where some asked the group for specific help on their turn (great!) and also about new ideas. Then we created 2 groups of 3 where we showcased our projects on the laptops we brought and helped each other out with specific needs.
Please always challenge what the outcome should be for these meetups. I, personally, love hearing about other makers progress as it inspires me. The talks around people’s challenges are great specific takeaways from each meetup.
For the future, I think we should also spend more time in smaller groups with our projects at hand, so we actually also get specific things done instead of just being a “talking club” 😅
Thoughts for next time
Spend less time introducing ourselves and just let newcomers introduce themselves?
Do more breakout sessions (1:1 or small groups of 3).
Open up for bringing laptops and working together.
This is the 3rd meetup in CPH and I am so happy I decided to give it a try with hosting these meetups. I've met the greatest people and sincerely hope we can follow each other over the next months and see each other live out our dreams.
If you are waiting for the meetups to happen in your city, don't wait. Just try it out :) https://jepras.com/blog/take-the-initiative/
