Meet Up: Austin, TX

Vaniver 18 July 2012 03:15PM

WHEN: 02 August 2025 01:30:00PM (-0500)

WHERE: 2803 San Jacinto Blvd. Austin, Texas 78705

The Austin meetup continues! Although we hope to still be regularly meeting in eleven years, the date displays as 2025 to prevent spamming discussion with meetup announcements.

The next meetup is August 2nd, 2014 at 1:30PM at JP's Java. It's got a large sign shaped like a stylized owl. I won't be there, but someone will be there with a sign that looks like the LW header.

If you have any questions or want to get my phone number to make sure you find us, please send me a private message. I'll notice and respond to those much more quickly than I'll notice comments on this meetup announcement.

We have a Google Group here.

Hey all. This is a quick note that a few of us will be meeting today (Nov. 30, 2013) despite the thanksgiving break.

I went and had fun! I'll be going to them every week, in the absence of other plans.

I will come, unless I utterly space it off and forget.

Your meet up is planned for the year 2019, can you correct it?

This is currently deliberate, and I plan on restoring it to the current year as soon as we get functionality for automatically recurring meetup notices.

Do these meetups still take place?

Yes, but things are spottier over the summer. (I wasn't there last week, and won't be there this week either.) Feel free to PM me if you're thinking of coming, since I can tell you who is planning to be there that week and my phone number so you can be sure to find us.

How many people come to this? I'll be in town for the weekend (Infosec Southwest), so might be able to stop by.

Ack, sorry I missed this! We typically get 3-5 people; it was 3 on Saturday.

For some reason the Austin meetups keep getting posted as occurring in 2018. Have any ideas why?

Comment author: Vaniver 07 September 2012 03:53:26AM 3 points [-]

2018 has the same days of the week as 2012 (at least for the relevant months). This way, I can edit the same meetup post to adjust the date, rather than having to make a new one each week and spam discussion.

I'm in Austin for the summer and plan to make this my first LW meetup.

Now I've come on public record and increased the chance that I actually go.
