Great sounds like, we’re getting a little a bit of interest. I definitely can host a meetup at Loyola (which is in the north part of Baltimore City). I may also be able to pay some of the expenses of an invited speaker from Protocal Labs. It might be great for an inaugural meetup.
But I think it is important to get a critical mass. Thus it would be great to DC people like @kevina and @haoliangyu were willing to come to north Baltimore and if Baltimore people were willing to travel to a DC location.
If people were willing to travel, we could alternate meetings, 1 month at Loyola, and one month at a location near D.C. But someone else would need to find a space for the D.C. meeting.
If the group got big enough, we could eventually split into a Baltimore and D.C. Group, but I think it would be ideal to find a way to combine the meetup until it that happens.
Let me know what you guys think. @joeperks are you still interested?
