Gather with your people.
Meetups are a place for you to gather with people that are into something similar to you-- maybe you all geek out about technology, or you all like to think about HOW things are made-- either way, these are informal gatherings of like-minded folks. All meetups are totally free to attend and are open to anyone in the community-- you do not need to be a member and you are welcome to bring friends!
Meetups were one of the first types of programming we added at theCO and since our opening in 2014 -- their content continues to grow and adapt as much as the rest of theCO. Most of them have a framework of a topic each week so check-out details below to learn more.
First Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m.
Do you have an interest in building, tinkering, electronics, robotics, metalworking and woodworking? Then this gathering is for you! CO:member Austin Thompson leads this meetup and his style is more of a "we learn together" model. So there is a topic each week but it's not at all classroom style, it's more of a plan to discover more on the topic together.
April 3: This month, we'll be giving you a brief introduction to 3D printing.
Second Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m.
Are you ready to take your social media marketing to the next level (or even learn where to start)? Each monthCO:members and marketers Kevin Adelsberger and Austin Thompson will talk about the latest in social media, dive into specific topics on social media, and take questions to help you grow your business with social media. Bring your lunch and your friends!
April 10: This month, Kevin will be introducing us to the new podcast app, Anchor, and Austin will be discussing ways to make your website rank better for voice search.
Third Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m.
Connect with others interested in the world of coding! Each month CO:member Chance Smith focuses on solving real problems with code. No programming experience required to show up and join the conversation but please bring your laptop so you can participate. Interested in videos from past meet-ups? Head here.
Fourth Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m.
This is a night where you will have the chance to hear and learn from artists and makers with a wide variety of backgrounds and levels of experience. Every 4th Tuesday evening, we will host two artists, one who is just starting in their field and another with years of creative experiences, to talk about their craft and answer any questions you may have. Hosted by Ricky Santos.
April 24: Join us for a fun, casual "Drink & Draw" this month. We'll doodle together, share about our creative processes, and get to know one another. Bring your own drink!
Every Thursday at 5:00 pm.
CO:bots is a meetup for those interested in building and tinkering with...R O B O T S! Bring any builds you've been working on, or come to see what others are making. There won't be a topic each week-- this is more of a gathering place for robotics lovers aged 10 and up.
