What is a #TriangleTweetup? – A Community History Lesson

6,185 views

Published on

It's been a bit over 5 years since Wayne Sutton @waynesuttons, Ryan Boyles @theRab, Ginny Skalski @ginnyskal, Jeffrey L Cohen @jeffreylcohen, and Francis Shepherd @shepherdfx met in the Helios Coffee in downtown Raleigh NC for the first tweetup. Since then we've hosted about 20 tweetups with our Triangle friends with attendance averaging 150-200 people. This is the story - packaged as an Ignite talk.

Follow @triangletweetup on Twitter for the latest Triangle Tweetup news.
