The next Six Hour Startup will be at 2pm this Sunday (1/25) at Collins Pub.
Andrew Woods will be leading a project to build a "tweetup" organizer, so those of us on Twitter (who isn't?) have a more convenient way to meet in person and converse in more than 140 characters. Right now tweetups are almost always organized *on* Twitter, which is not the most convenient place for keeping track of events.
The app will be built in PHP, but no knowledge of PHP is necessary to participate. Available roles include copywriting, biz dev, marketing, UX, security, front-and-back-end programming, and beer-drinking cheerleader. Graphic designers are especially welcome!
If you're not familiar with Six Hour Startup, we organize monthly events with a goal of completing a working prototype in six hours. Anyone is welcome - no programming or business experience required. The goal is to have fun, learn something new, and create a useful app that we can share with the community. A tweetup organizer would be an especially great service for Seattle to share with the entire Twitter network.
Past Six Hour Startup projects include Timelope.com, a Firefox plugin that allows you to share your browsing activity with others, and LunchLuck.com, which suggests a random place to eat for the indecisive among us.
