I originally founded the Denver Gophers meetup in January, 2013. Today, it is consistently one of the top 10 Go meetups in the world. In 2015, I founded both Chicago and Minneapolis Golang meetups. I continue to be involved in all of the meetups, but spend most of my focus on growing Chicago and Minneapolis.
