Udacity Global Meetup -- Opening Soon in a Computer Near You!


The Second Annual Udacity Global Meetup on July 20th is fast approaching! And we’ve had an overwhelming response to our meetups -- thanks for letting us know we can expect to meet over a thousand Udacians at the event! We’ve actually outgrown our first venue in Palo Alto, and -- as we approach 400 RSVPs at that location -- have upsized to a space that can hold more than double the capacity of our first location! We want to make sure that we have enough food and beverage for our Udacious community members and job readiness enthusiasts, so please take a moment to update your RSVP for the Global Meetup.


For Udacians tuning in from around the globe, be sure to download your Global Meetup Organizer Kits, and plan to tune in to the Hangout On Air starting at 2.30pm PDT. Don’t forget that the top ten largest Meetup communities outside of the United States will get a call with someone from the Udacity team! No matter where you are, check our social channels for the Hangout On Air link on the day of the Global Meetup to hear Sebastian’s welcoming remarks to all Udacians. For those of you in different time zones, the same Hangout On Air link will show a recording of the opening remarks after the live stream is complete.

Sebastian is looking forward to saying hello to Udacians at the Palo Alto meetup and to everyone tuning into the Hangout On Air for his opening remarks, during which he’ll answer a few of your questions. Tweet your question to Sebastian with #AskSebastian, and you may hear the answer straight from Sebastian himself!

In the Palo Alto, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago and New York meetups, attendees could have the chance to speak with special guests from Google, Microsoft, Braintree, Etsy, Redfin and other leading technology companies and experts.  They will lead informal breakout sessions on job readiness topics and answer your career-related questions. Don’t forget to make the most of the Global Meetup’s tech job readiness theme by updating your Udacity profile and uploading your resume -- and bring a few resumes with you to the event too!
