I helped teach a beginner class at the Framer session last night.

I was thinking that it would be nice to have more frequent / less formal get togethers to talk shop and go over some simple Framer concepts & workflows.

When: Framer Fridays. (morning, afternoon, or night?)
Where: San Francisco. Coffee shop or here at Dropbox?
What: 1 hour demos + 1 hour work session to have mentors help with problems
Frequency: Weekly or Bi-Weekly

Just an idea. I'm happy to help organize. There would be limited space per session (5-10 people). This will help keep things focused - I'd love for people to come with specific questions / issues. Each session will have different focus (Beginners, Sketch workflow, Advanced, Using real data etc).

Thoughts?

TLDR Casual is nice

It's been going well for us here in Seattle. Next meeting is opened up to people asking questions after a few of the presentations and getting paired with someone who can help with the issue. We found that people stayed after the meeting anyway and sat together and talked about specific issues. Also, in the past some of us have used google hangouts to screen share and chat.

I can also probably host something here at Fitbit. A few here are curious to learn. Lemme know.

Two hours a week talking about our workflows and improving them would be awesome to have... we're doing more and more prototyping... And the workflow could be much faster. I could also benefit from more sketch knowledge... I'll trade that for Framer and coding help. :D

Effy Zhang

Everyone can demo a small project they did and write a short tutorial

Stefanos Kofopoulos

Please live stream that or put it on YouTube for us not in SF

Stephen Crowley

I think we need to cross the streams with a live SF/Seattle event in the near future

How do I get involved? I'm a beginner working in SF who would attend a session like this :) (at night, coffee shop and a weekly session sounds awesome)
