    I find no Meetup Groups from India, though there are hundreds of developer spread across the country but the only Meetup I heard is WP Meetup Mumbai (that too only once; just started).
    Any one, WordPress - Developer, Designer, Blogger or Beginner interested to form a meetup group??
    I think I can sponser three Meetup.com groups but not if we have only 3 or 4 members because $12-$19 per month will be too much for five-six people.
    We already have an unofficial meetup group in Chhattisgarh (CG) (anyone from CG is invited) with 20 members but we are not comfortable with meetup.com
    16 of us met on 14th of this month

    Anyone from WordPress with any Idea or help on how can we regularize meetup groups, any idea on how to contact in a better way (of course online)
    What about having a website???
    any help will be appreciable.

    Hello,

    My name is Chetan. I am new WordPress developer, I design and develop wordpress themes. Still learning though. It's a nice idea to have WOrdpress developer team from India to ask and get questions and answers.

    regards,
    chetan

    Hi. Count me in. I'm Naveen from Hyderabad. I am more of a user of wordpress turned amateur developer.

    It will be great to see the Indians flocking together for wordpress.

    Good start by Aditya. Lets now hope more Indian's sign-up on this discussion forum. And after getting a good number, we can think of something.

    Hello

    I'm from Chandigarh and would love to start a meetup in Chandigarh.

    I feel we in India do not have quality resources where developers can be helped to increase the level of awareness.

    I have seen at times, and I have seen many occasions as I have been in the field of development for the last 15 years, due to limited or lack of knowledge we end up doing disservice to customers and WordPress as well which should be fixed. I believe one or a group us need to fix the problem and give back to the community.

    I have already created a group of Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/groups/354263784660102/) hoping to leverage and get people to meet. The idea has been with me for sometime but I finally decided to take some action.

    Creating website would be nice and maybe on WordPress.com to start with. It will be nice to discuss some ideas and thoughts. Let me know how you want to improve interactions.

    I would be interested initially for sponsorship but nothing beyond 3 months because after that I think I will be able to support the meetup regularly if I cannot get one of the local companies to sponsor it.

    Nice to see the replies.

    It would be great if folks can also mention the area they are from for example Chandigarh, Delhi, Ludhiana, Chennai, etc. That way it may help others to get in touch in case you are geographically closer to them.

    Hi Pali.

    I was thinking the same. So have created a spreadsheet here

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AhNzIUwta1NrdE1JYTFfczlZNU5tbmJPN1ptZ0xJcUE

    Just share it with your networks.

    Thanks,

    Hey Prerak,

    Nice idea.

    I know making it public would make moderating a pain in the a**. Can you set up a simple Google Docs form for adding the info - maybe that is a bit more user friendly.

    Anyway sending you my credentials to be added.

    Cheers!!

    Yes Pali. It would be a better idea. Let me do that.

    Thanks,

    I don't understand why we need a google docs when we can fill-up location details in our own WordPress Profiles.

    Even a google docs form can bring the spam. So why not just click your profile and edit the location to a more appropriate one. Like I did in my own case.

    Direct link to edit your profile:

    @Pali got time to make a simple google form. @knaveenchand : Hmm... Spam is not the issue as the document now would be private, and I want some team members to make 'something' (I know what I gonna do) that would help us all. Anyone? If yes please raise your hand. :) + we would have to promote ourselves where clients search! I don't think they search for talent on wordpress forums. Even exception case would be less.

    Here is the doc if anyone want to fill it up.
