Despite torrential rains yesterday, New York City's first CiviCRM Co-Working day was a hit. A diverse group of people representing workers unions, religious organizations, Occupy Wall Street, The Drupal Association and more gathered to work together. The morning started out withOUT coffee and donuts (we can blame the rain) yet everyone buckled down to work with Dave and Lobo standing by on IRC to answer any questions. After breaking for lunch and a case study presentation midday, the true collaboration began with many questions asked and answered.
This was a much more satisfying model for those of us who have been organizing the monthly meetups because attendance was hirer and people seemed to really be mentoring one another while getting their own work done. We'd love to get some feedback from those who did and didn't attend. At this point our thought is to hold CiviCRM Co-Working on the third Monday of each month. A nice way to kick off the week!
