Over 400 Global Meetups and looking forward to your next local study group!

On September 15, Udacians around the world gathered for Udacity’s first Global Meetup. We hope to see this enthusiasm grow in future meetups, which organizers should feel free to organize anytime and advertise for in their favorite cafes, restaurants, etc. We look forward to continuing to support and get feedback from our local organizers and students.
Clockwise from top-left: Students in Ghana meet with Udacity's Clarissa Shen.

Here in Palo Alto, over 100 of us met in the TrialPay offices (huge thanks to TrialPay!). Instructors Peter Norvig, Steve Blank, Dave Evans, Andy Brown joined in person and Steve Huffman in San Francisco and Michael Littman in NYC joined by Skype.

Overall, Udacity students met with each other in over 400 cities around the world, and this is just the beginning! We hope that Udacians everywhere will continue to use our meetup.com page to organize local gatherings, form study groups, and socialize with their classmates. To help advertise future meetups, feel free to use the 100% official, Udacity-approved, flyer (in both letter and A4 size). See you at the next meetup!
