We can help with food, promotion and swag! Email us: community@sensu.io.

Venue

You’ll need a place to meet. Contact local tech companies — many of them are interested in hosting these kind of events. We also recommend finding a central location — downtown for most cities is ideal because it’s easier to access for most attendees.

Schedule your first meeting

The most important thing is to keep an active group with frequent events (ideally once a month and on a regular cadence, such as the first Monday of the month). The choice of date and time matters. Most meetups choose Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays after work.

Sustaining a group yourself can be difficult to manage. Ideally you should have a team of passionate and committed co-organizers. Joining forces helps spread the load and expands the network.

Beyond posting the event on Meetup, you can ask other local meetups to post your event on their Meetup pages. Many groups are happy to do so, especially if you return the favor!

Presenters

It’s all about the agenda! Each talk description should contain:

- A short bio of the speaker
- A compelling title
- A short paragraph describing the content of the presentation/demo
