We aim to provide a place for Web professionals to meet new people, exchange ideas, learn new things, and have a little fun. We have several events each month: one for learning, and happy hours all over the metro area for socializing.

Build Guild Atlanta

Atlanta JavaScript Meetup Group

The Atlanta JavaScript Meetup Group allows developers to meet other local JavaScripters to share knowledge, to review the state of the art, or to dream up new applications.

Atlanta NodeJS Developers

The Atlanta NodeJS Developers group focuses on learning node js through a practical approach. We will have keynote introductions of meetings, followed by discussions, and then hacking/development sessions where we will learn to rapidly build applications. While we may have the occasional outside expert speaker, our goals are to promote knowledge and gain experience in this new technology by work from members within the group.

We will have a heavy focus on mobile computing devices and other smart devices like TVs with less focus on plain desktop pc.

Atlanta WordPress User's Group

The Atlanta WordPress User's Group is the oldest and largest Atlanta WordPress Meetup.

It is usually held in the evening, on the 4th Wednesday of each month, in Inman Park near Downtown, Atlanta.
