We actually have a growing group of community leaders already meeting (informally) in downtown Detroit. Given the unique geography of the area, it typically makes sense for Ann Arbor and Detroit chapters to exist. For example, the Google Developer’s Group and Girl Develop It are two prime examples of this in action. Often, these groups will then pair up for bigger joint events that bring the community together as a whole.
So I’m tossing my hat into the ring to formalize a Detroit chapter of this! I’d love to pair up, too! I’m here at OSCON until Friday morning, so if anyone is here and wants to chat, lets do it!
