Meetup is a website that provides a tool for groups to organize community events.
“Meetup is the world’s largest network of local groups. Meetup makes it easy for anyone to organize a local group or find one of the thousands already meeting up face-to-face. More than 2,000 groups get together in local communities each day, each one with the goal of improving themselves or their communities.” – About Meetup
I have been a member of Meetup since 2005 and have been running a The Raleigh-Durham Singles Meetup since 2006. From the beginning of being an Organizer, I have suggested many enhancements to Meetup and they have implemented a lot of them. However, as each group on Meetup is different, each Organizer runs their group differently and needs different tools to help run the group. Meetup started working on an API in 2008 to provide tech savvy Organizers a method of getting information from Meetup and creating tools that would help people use Meetup outside of the website. This is the tool that I created focused on my needs as an Organizer. I am hoping that other Organizers will find it useful and I plan to add more functionality as Meetup ads more functionality to the Meetup API.
