It has been an exciting journey so far in trying to grow the Vancouver Windows Azure meetup with my business partner Jef King. Our mission has always been to inspire the community to build solutions on top of Windows Azure -- Since the release of many different SDKs, developers are now able to bring value to their users easily with common technologies. These technologies include Python, NodeJS, PHP, and Java. We are now at over 130 members with 10+ meetups that average 30 people coming out.
