Hi everyone,

For those of you who live in the Bay Area: a few of us have recently started a new Meetup group for Selenium users in the San Francisco Bay Area: http://web.meetup.com/161/

Perhaps some of you would like to join. In the past few days since we started the group, there are already nearly 40 members, including some of the Selenium committers.

The goal of this group is to have regular face-to-face, in-person meetings with fellow developers and testers that use Selenium to test their web applications.

The SF Selenium Meetup is an open forum where Selenium users of all skill levels can come to communicate, learn, network, or just have a good time. We meet on a monthly basis and generally have speaker from major software and web companies in the Bay Area. Lively discussions or Q&A for hours afterwards.

Our focus is in Selenium but our topics encompass related topics of interest, such as Agile testing, Test-Driven Development, Continuous Integration, building test scripts in Ruby, Python, Java, PHP, and C#; and much more.

Any suggestions for specific meeting topics are welcome.

Thanks, and hope to see you on the group!

P.S. If you're not familiar with Meetup -- here's a quick blurb:

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.

Meetup's mission is to revitalize local community and help people around the world self-organize. Meetup believes that people can change their personal world, or the whole world, by organizing themselves into groups that are powerful enough to make a difference.
