Ee Venn Soh

I do (:

David Fumberger

I'm in Melbourne! Over in Prahran.

Koen Bok

If you guys are up for setting up a small meetup, we'd love to help.

Mike Hughes

That's what I was thinking, but at this stage the total is 3. But it's a start ... :-)

Koen Bok

Everyone bring one and there's six. Enough for a start :-)

Ee Venn Soh

There is definitely a lot of ppl within my agency who will want to learn more about Framer. Would love to expose this amazing tool to them.

Mike Hughes

Koen, it's Sat night here right now, so how about we see who answers over the next few days into the working week. We can then setup a Meetup and see who comes along.

Koen Bok

It's fun to see people get into it. The guys in Seattle created a really cool vibe where beginners feel very welcome and show their stuff off, whatever it is. It's cool to see them progress very quickly.

Mike Hughes

David Fumberger and Ee Venn Soh what level would you say you are at with Framer right now ?

David Fumberger

A meetup in Melbourne would be fun.

Mike Hughes

Sounds good, we can probably assume all/most of us are 'beginners' at this stage.

David Fumberger

Mike Hughes I've been using Framer very heavily for the project I'm currently working on, so have been producing a lot in it lately.

Mike Hughes

David Fumberger sounds like you might have a bit you could present/discuss with a small group ? I've got a few bits and pieces, I can show and discuss. Perhaps a first Meetup might just be to show and discuss our work to date ?

Siavash Shabanipour

+ 1 for a Melbourne meet up. Troy Mcilvena you mentioned you were also keen.

David Fumberger

Mike Hughes Yeah, I'm sure I've got some stuff here I can show. Sounds like a good start to me.

Troy Mcilvena

Mike Hughes I'd be happy be involved. We (REA Group) can provide a venue too if required. I ran a few Framer sessions at ThoughtWorks China a few weeks ago and am currently running a course at REA Group in Melbourne. Koen Bok

Mike Hughes

Awesome Troy Mcilvena relative to the rest of us sounds like you have quite a bit more experience with Framer. Would a REA venue possibly be Melbourne CBD ?

Joshua Kenzie

I work in Melbourne CBD and would also be interested in attending a Framer meet up

Daniel Whyte

Yep also at REA alongside Troy Mcilvena

Leigh Nelkin

Yes, i'm in Melbourne to ! if you need help set up meetups I will also be happy to assist.

Pete Collins

I'd be very keen to attend a Melbourne framer meetup

Chris Cacioppe

Melbourne represent ✌️.. Designer at Xero .. Some of the dudes here would be down for a meet up for sure!

Mike Hughes

Just as an update, looks like we may have numbers around 20 - 40 who are interested. Dates wise was thinking last week of April, probably on a Thur night 5:30 onwards on 21st or 28th. Agenda wise thinking of a couple of themes; "Getting Started with Framer", "Framer Proto Show and Tell" and a free form tutorial at the end where everyone just helps each other out.

Mike Hughes

Who might be keen to show/present their protos ? Or to come along and mentor ?

Mike Hughes

Oh, and probably "Framer What's New" given we have a major update in just 3ish days.

David Fumberger

Mike Hughes Nice one, sounds great. Put me down for show and tell and more than happy to help out wherever else needed.

Mike Hughes

Getting close everyone, so please if you plan to attend, starting think about anything you may want to show/share/discuss with others. Or if you just want to attend and learn from others, that's cool too.

Mike Hughes

Sorry for the delay guys, just waiting on approval for catering, but should get it tomorrow. :-/

Mark Johnston

Yup

Mark Johnston

Is there a meetup group created or anything?

Mike Hughes

About to put up a meetup/FB event as soon as catering confirmed. Figure we need a venue, on a date, with food as a minimum.

Mike Hughes

OK is Approved. We have venue = "Odecee, 410 Collins st Melbourne", Date of Thurs 12th May, from 5:30pm and it is sponsored so that means food and drink ! Will post an Event shortly and re post so we can collect interest and RSVPs.

Tim Knowles

LTTP but I'm from melbourne too and would also be keen

Mike Hughes

Posted event details in the group (sorry about the double post). Everyone who volunteered to help, perhaps private message me so we can discuss some lightning talks and detailed agenda.

Jordan Robert Dobson

Awesome guys! Glad to see this happening. We've made quite a few friendships over our last year. Next month is our 12th monthly meetup!!
