I’m delighted to announce that on September 16th, 2014 we’re having an Official Discourse Meetup in Toronto! If you’re around, please do come by and meet the team.

Here are the details:

P.S. Thanks to Meghann from Unspace for helping us with the planning.

I wish tech meetups wouldn’t always involve drinking, I just don’t like being around that scene.

I guess it makes it more enticing for some.

(Robin Ward) #3

Sorry about that. If it means anything I will be totally dry myself that night :smile:

This is excellent to see!

For those interested in justifying their trip in, MacTech BootCamp Toronto is the next day … Sep 17. We’ve got an awesome group of speakers flying in from around the US and Canada – people that you normally wouldn’t hear speak locally, about topics that any tech dealing with Apple products needs to know. Dates and Locations | MacTech Pro Events will get you a special deal for registration.

We’ll talk up the Discourse Meetup as well!


Oh man…this is very tempting.

Would really like to come up from Omaha and meet the tired and strung-out, super-programmers coming off their tour of Discourse programming duty.

The bar scene? That’s fine. It gets introverted programmers loosened up for real human conversations without avatars and emojis.

I’m in! This is a bunch of words to reach the character limit.

(Mark Campbell) #7

I liked this. More characters to reach the character limit!

(Dave McClure) #8

A little too far for me to plan a last minute trip from LA. Where’s it gonna be next year? :-p

(Robin Ward) #9

Possibly Australia? or the South of France? :stuck_out_tongue:

(Jeff Atwood) #10

Australia, we go in order of the founders. First year SF, second year Toronto, third year Australia. Fourth year would be France…

(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #11

A reminder for tomorrow!

(Robin Ward) #12

Oops I’ve made a huge mistake guys, sorry. The bar opens for us at 6pm, not 5pm as previously stated – if you get there earlier I’m super sorry, but this should be easier for those of you coming after work anyway!

So it’s 6-8pm tonight at Pharmacy. See you there!

(Robin Ward) #13

Thanks for coming everyone!

(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #14

Mmmm doughnuts.

Thanks all!

(Manthan Mallikarjun) #15

Ill probably attend once it rolls back around to SF!


What was the turnout like? Anybody take pictures of the event?

(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #17

The Discourse team was there in style, all much handsomer than could reasonably be expected.

I think they were outnumbered about 2 to 1 with fans from all over. No pictures that I know of, but the venue looks just like the picture above.

It was quite nice to meet the guys behind the project, and hear more about the history of Discourse.
