Interested in starting a local TigerGraph community chapter in your area?
Community meetups and user groups are a great way to meet fellow TigerGraph community members, exchange ideas, and learn new things. If you would like to start a new local community chapter or meetup in your area, follow the guidelines below:
Setting up the local community chapter
- Create a chapter on meetup.com.
- Let us and everyone inside the community know about your new community chapter by posting about it on the TigerGraph Community Chat
- Let people at TigerGraph know about your user chapter!
- Tag #TigerGraphs on your posts on the TigerGraph forum or share updates about your user group on social media and tag @TigerGraph
Spreading the word about your local community chapter:
- Share the updates about your user group on social media and tag @TigerGraph
- Let the team at firstname.lastname@example.org know about the event to help market the event to the broader audience.
Organizing the first event:
- Create the event on your community’s meetup.com page
- Find the speakers. TigerGraph has many great developers working on interesting TigerGraph projects so don’t hesitate to post a call for speakers on the TigerGraph forum and, or dev chat!
Before the event:
- Update the event with the information about the speakers: name, title, topic
- Send out the reminders to the attendees and remind people to RSVP
Make your community chapter last and grow:
- Be consistent with the events.
- Give a chance for people from your community to give talks and share ideas
- Play around with the format of the meetup - workshops, lightning talks, discussions are great ways to keep the audience interested and engaged
- Stay engaged with the community by sharing pictures of the events, gathering feedback from the attendees.
