Due to the unfortunate events related to COVID-19, in-person community events are being put on hold for the next few months. We feel the pain of all the conference and meetup organizers who are forced to cancel their events and want to send them our support in this difficult and stressful time.
In the meantime, we’re working with an incredible group of community leaders and contributors to not only organize Online Meetup but also create local Strapi meetup groups for when we can start gathering again!
We recently started hosting monthly Strapi Online meetups, every third Thursday of the month at 9am PST. In the 3rd edition that will take place on Thursday, March 19th at 8 AM (PDT), Derrick Mehaffy (DevOps expert and long time Strapi contributor) and Jim Laurie (Strapi co-founder and CTO) will share everything you need to know about Strapi deployment options.
Here are the links to the video recording and slides from the first two editions:
Feel free to subscribe to our Youtube channel to be notified when the next video recordings are available!
If you want to learn about specific Strapi topics and see what other community members are suggesting, you can also check out this GitHub issue and vote for your topics of interest for upcoming editions.
As you all know, meetups are a key medium to meet, share, learn from and collaborate with other members of open-source communities. As Strapi community members start to reach out and volunteer to create local Strapi user groups, we think now is the time to officially support this kind of initiative.
Strapi meetups bring together people who are interested in Strapi and the JAMstack ecosystem at large. We are very grateful for the people who dedicate time to encourage in-person knowledge sharing, collaboration, and mentorship within the Strapi and broader open source community. Our goal is to provide resources and assistance to everyone who wants to bring the community together by organizing Strapi meetups.
Interested in getting involved? Here is the information you are probably looking for :)
Create an issue on the strapi-meetups repository and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the link to the issue you just created. We’ll then create the group on meetup.com (so that you don’t have to pay for the monthly fees) and add you as an organizer.
Create an issue on the strapi-meetups repository and send an email to the community leader in charge of the meetup group you want to speak at with the link to the issue you just created.
We see community leaders as members of the Strapi family and are committed to your success as Strapi and JAMstack community leaders. Here is a non-exhaustive list of things we can help with:
We send you Strapi SWAG (stickers, etc). We promote every Meetup on strapi.io website, the Strapi Weekly newsletter and Social Media. We connect you with employees or community members interested in speaking at your meetup. We connect you with companies interested in hosting or sponsoring your meetup. We provide unique networking and learning opportunities to the community leaders.
