Hi everyone,

John from the mothership here. When we were first planning webOS meet ups we thought we would just have a small number scattered in the big US cities, and we could support them all pretty easily

But boy were we wrong!

Every day I am delighted at the interest in webOS meet-ups showing up around the world.

We would love to be everywhere at once, but of course we in Developer Relations have limited resources. Contrary to popular belief we do not sit on chairs fashioned from stacks of money, nor do we have so many TouchPads we use them as lunch trays. So help us prioritize by gauging the size of groups by making your presence known at:

meetup.com/hpwebos

Unlike regular Meetup groups, these "Meetup Everywhere" groups are free. So wherever you are, go make yourself heard!

Also if an admin could sticky this, that'd be great

I started one for Columbia SC, but it was more directed to all of GA, SC, and NC users. Planned meetup is in Charlotte, NC. Columbia HP webOS Community - Meetup

Berlin, Deutschland // Germany

Die-hard webOS community, with roots a decade back well into the times of Palm PDAs...

Go to HP webOS Meetups Everywhere - Meetup and start one for your town or nearby major metro area. I just started one for St. Louis.

I started one for the Phoenix / Scottsdale, Arizona area. Easy to set up via the link John provided. If I build it, they will come (I hope).

Since John is no longer with HP/Palm, you may wish to unsticky this.
