A great way to learn and advance at programming is to attend events and meet people who can help you contribute to open source.

We could pull events in from meetup.com and lanyrd.com and ask for a general location (city/country) and show events nearby.

👍 . Love the idea of 24PRs . Events will for sure spread the word. Will be awesome to organize. Wondering if it is already too late for 2013, events? thoughts?

@arthurnn i dont think it's too late, there are a lot of things coming up in December.
But it would be nice to show upcoming events in general, and not just for 2013

@arthurnn heh, I misread what you said, but still 👍, a 24PR event day would be great. @andrew what do you think?

@andrew @arthurnn This sounds super cool.

You could ping http://rubyusergroups.org/ and ask each group to throw a collaborative workshop night. I’ll start with Ottawa Ruby.

Would be great to do, if people are organising them then let's add a page to the site to promote them, we could also mention them in the emails that get sent out.

I'm not going to have much time to organise an event myself but if there is one nearby I'll try and attend.
