After attending your local dev meetup for months, you suddenly get the dreaded email: "Your Organizer just stepped down without nominating a replacement." But the community relies on this meetup! It brings together devs from all around to engage in networking, learning, and comradery! So you step up. I mean, how hard could it be, right? Oh no. This is much harder than you thought. You have to organize a venue, figure out refreshments, get a speaker, ensure people show up. In this talk, you'll learn the skills need to start and sustain a vibrant meetup and tech community.
