I was up late last night chatting with Cris Pearson of Plasq (yes, the creators of Comic Life!) about his creation — the Aussie-born tequp!
He writes on the wiki:
A tequp is a local meeting with a global front. Get to know locals doing cool stuff, share startup/business experiences and talk about new technologies. Create, share and learn in an open environment.
Initially focussing on innovative software and internet development/design – but really, anything teq 🙂
Started in Melbourne, Australia, similarities to BarCamp where quickly noticed and have now teamed up to cross-polinate. Like the BarCamp model, tequp is open and meets are created by any interested people in their local area.
So we’re thinking of having one in late May at the NetSquared Conference — to present the work we’ve done at WineCamp the weekend leading up to the gala event. Oh, and if you’re a developer and interested in going to this sold out event, drop an email to Billy Bicket (billy -at- compumentor dot org) expressing your desire to attend.
