Announcing Second Annual Udacity Global Meetup

Save the date! You're invited to join the Udacity community as we gather for our Second Annual Global Meetup Day on Saturday, July 20th at 2pm PDT.


The theme of the event will be to bring Udacians together on a single day worldwide to celebrate our community and our mission to educate and empower people to advance their education and careers in technology.


Cities across the world will hear from one or more of Udacity's founders and instructors. We’ll be formally organizing five official U.S. meetup locations in Palo Alto, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago and New York. After you’ve heard from us about advancing your education and careers in tech, stick around for job-readiness activities for those who are interested. And, of course, much socializing and making of new friends is encouraged.


RSVP to celebrate the Udacity community in one of these cities, or consider hosting your own meetup locally. Follow these steps:


1. Find or organize a Meetup. Check out the Udacity Meetup page, where you can view a list of Meetups communities by location. RSVP to Udacity-hosted meetups in these cities:



For Udacians tuning in from outside of the United States, or far from our officially hosted locations, host your own by creating a Meetup in your city! To organize your own Meetup, follow these steps:


  • Search for your community by location. If a community does not yet exist in your area, click on "Start a community."
  • Fill out details: if you’d like to virtually connect with Udacity during your meetup, plan to tune in to our livestream at 2pm PDT for opening remarks.
  • Stay tuned for your downloadable Organizer packet: this will include a flyer you can post locally, a sign-in sheet, fact sheet and best practices for hosting.


2. Let everyone know you’re coming! Let us know you’re coming on Meetup.com, Facebook, and Google+. You can also tweet @udacity using #MeetUdacity to help spread the word and connect with other Udacians. And bringing friends and family is always welcome.


Mark your calendars for July 20 and stay tuned for updates here on the blog as well as on Meetup.com!
