Vancouver User Group

We've had a couple of meetings and I'm the keeper of the emails and lists, but would rather use a collaborative space. If you want to be part of our group, you can reply to this thread (or email me directly if you want: holly at sparkandco dot ca).

A group of us met this week and we shared some resources that I'd like to put up here.

I've proposed that we meet again the week of July 20th.

Hi Anni,

I believe we decided on March 29th @ 5-7 pm. At some point in the days
leading up to the meeting people can start to post up some challenges or
issues they might want some help with or for the group to consider. Then
when we get together we can brainstorm and/or get into some direct problem

Great to see some of you last night. We decided it was better to start a new thread for each meeting, as this one was getting unwieldy.

Please follow and subscribe to the thread below and we'll make sure you get information about our next meeting.

Many, many thanks to Lynn for hosting, in person and virtually.
