From their new MEAN Meetup.com page:
I'd like to extend this invitation to join us at the beautiful Buford Community Center in Buford GA for our first meetup.
The subject presentation will be an introduction to the Windows command line interface and the Mac terminal command line interface along with an introduction to basic text editors to create text and script files and make them ready for execution. Also, during this session, we will NodeJS and the GIT command line interface for windows and the Mac.
Members are encouraged to bring their laptops/iBooks or whatever system they plan to use I the workshop.
The initial meetup will be Wednesday, July 8th, at 6:00 pm
Open Maps? Yes, Indeed. From their Meetup Page:
MaptimeATL is the Atlanta chapter of Maptime (http://maptime.io)!
Maptime is, rather literally, time for mapmaking. Our mission is to open the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested by creating a time and space for collaborative learning, exploration, and map creation using mapping tools and technologies. This open learning environment for all levels and degrees of knowledge offers intentional support for the beginner. Maptime is simultaneously flexible and structured, creating space for workshops, ongoing projects with a shared goal, and independent/collaborative work time.
Inspiration for Maptime comes from both hack nights and knitting circles. Both are models of spaces for people to create and learn together. Our goal is to provide this space with an open heart and without pretension. You can bring your own projects to work on, or just hang out and socialize or ask questions. Some people are experts, and some people are just getting started, but all of us are learning, so why not do it together?
Maptime is hands-on, so don't forget to bring your laptop!
Connect.js Coming in October
This from Chris Spruck at the PHP group:

We are excited to open registration and the call for papers for Connect.js 2015, which will be held on October 16 & 17 at the Cobb Galleria Center, Atlanta GA.

New Way to Help Sponsor Your Group
A friend of mine runs LiveSoftwareEvents.com, a way to live-stream video and make money from it. The organizer doesn't pay, just the remote viewers. They pay a reasonable $1 per hour which gets split with the organizer. If you or your group would like to give it a try, contact Bernie LiveSoftwareEvents and give it a try.
