Norfolk.js just celebrated its first birthday in November!
Norfolk.js has been a tremendous experience and a bigger success than I, or any of the other organizers, could have imagined. The success of of Norfolk.js isn’t just due to the dedication of any one of us, but because of support of our entire local development community. The financial and logistical support from local sponsors (like CodeBetter.com) also allows us to deliver a quality experience that rivals groups in larger cities. We’ve been able to learn from existing user groups like 757.rb and HRNUG, and get feedback from our peers about what works for them in a developer user group. We open-sourced our website and our organizing discussions, and use Github to facilitate this valuable feedback and to make Norfolk.js as inclusive as possible.
