Back to Meetup
post date: October 30, 2022
I'm sad to report the founders of MeetingPlace.io had to shut down their company. They gave me a few day's notice to get the member lists before they shut down the website. I wasn't fast enough to send a final email from their platform before the website stopped working!
Sadly that is the downside of going with a startup over Meetup.com. I'm sorry for the extra steps folks had to go through to sign up for MeetingPlace, only to go back a few months later. I liked the simplicity of MeetingPlace and that it was local to the Midwest. I'm rather opinionated about Meetup, and all event hosting platforms, but it looks like the easiest thing to do is use the biggest name in events so this doesn't happen again. Thank you for sticking with us!
We are ramping up events this fall/winter and have a few in-person events in the works. If you're going to re:Invent we will have a meet up in person at the user group booth in the Expo hall. As always, if you have a topic you'd like to learn about, a talk you're considering presenting, or hoping to host an event get in touch! Please stay in touch!
