Joel on Software MeetupMeetup.com organizes regularly scheduled Joel on Software reader meetings in 640 cities around the world on the third Wednesday of every month. The next one is coming up on January 21st.

I’m not sure exactly how it works… I think that as soon as they get 5 members confirmed in a particular city, the meetup is officially on, otherwise it’s automatically cancelled.

Meetup.com was created by my fellow New Yorker, Scott “Fries With That?” Heiferman, who also founded i-traffic.com (now a part of agency.com).

About the author.

In 2000 I co-founded Fog Creek Software, where we created lots of cool things like the FogBugz bug tracker, Trello, and Glitch. I also worked with Jeff Atwood to create Stack Overflow and served as CEO of Stack Overflow from 2010-2019. Today I serve as the chairman of the board for Stack Overflow, Glitch, and HASH.
