2013 was a big year for RefreshAugusta. Our meetup group grew to 111 members. We grew to 773 followers on Twitter. We held a total of 9 meetups in 2013: Two lunches, one workshop, and six educational/informative evening events. We even made a one-day web conference happen here in Augusta!
- February – Outsmart Yourself: Failure, Consciousness, and the Magnetic Middle with J Cornelius
- March – Design Double-Header with UnmatchedStyle with Gene Crawford and Giovanni DiFeterici
- April – Here-say & Conjecture with Alex Wier & Daniel Stewart (Wier/Stewart)
- May – Web Afternoon Augusta!
- June – Building Animations with CSS3 with Josh Netherton
- August – User Research Workshop with Jenn Downs
- September – Big Picture UX with Nick Finck
- October – Preprocess all the Things! with Chris Harrison (me, duh!)
We had some really smart people come to Augusta to speak about their passion and share it with the Augusta web community. And we’re just a small part of what’s happening here in Augusta. Hack Augusta, ALUG, the CSRA Makers, Dev Club and more are doing great things in our area.
A big reason all of this was possible is TheClubhou.se. They’ve served as our meeting space and a technology hub, and I know it’ll play an even bigger role in our future.
