Global Polkadot Meetups
We invite people across the globe to organise Polkadot meetups in their local cities.
There is no requirement to contact us, but we think there is a lot to be gained from working together. We are keen to talk with people who can work in a self-directed manner. We envision that meetups will mainly be organised through meetup.com since this seems to be the defacto standard for creating local meetup groups. The plan is to have multiple active meetup groups across the world.
Create an "Issue" to get started
On the issues page you can see past meetups the community has organized. If you see your city listed then feel free to reply, if you don't see your city listed then feel free to open a new issue (please follow the naming convention being used). This is where you can coordinate with other community members!
- What is the plan:
- Number of people on your team:
- Do you need help from W3F:
- Do you need help from the community:
To gain a better understanding what of your response should look like, we recommend reading over the examples page:
