Hey everyone, the Meetup page is live at http://www.meetup.com/Laravel-Birmingham/
I've set a limit of 20 people for the first initial gathering to give us a chance to test it out and decide on a format to follow for future meetups. Pizza and drinks will be provided, I'm thinking soft drinks instead of alcohol but there are plenty of bars in the area if anyone would like to continue the discussion over a beer afterwards.
I've also created an event on emble to help us work out the most suitable date for everyone and I'd be really grateful if people could suggest an agenda. I've recently been attending WordPress Birmingham and I like the way it runs so I personally would prefer to have presentations followed by a chance to talk, either using a Lean Coffee or BarCamp format.
If you'd like to help with organisation and stop me becoming an evil dictator please get in touch, I'd ideally like 2 or 3 people to become organisers.
Is 18:30-20:30/21:00 after work a suitable time for everyone? (Should we decide on that in emble?)
