All Contributors

After several years of being dissatisfied with existing group event tools (Meetup, Facebook events) we decided to build our own.

User Stories


The MVP user stories are shown in the MVP Project kanban / cards and as issues marked with "MVP".


We are maintaining a list of post-MVP conversations and user stories using the "Roadmap" tag.

Quincy Larson is the project lead. freeCodeCamp will start "dogfooding" the MVP with several of its local study groups.
