How can I start a local user group?

See Jens Weller’s nice writeup.

Please also see the User Group section at Meeting C++

See Forming a New C++ Community Group for ideas on engaging your group with the wider community.

Register your group with Meeting C++

A successful user group needs four main ingredients:

  • People. You don’t need a lot of people, but a good critical mass is usually around 5 to 20 people attending each month.

  • Location. Have a regular place to meet. Often a local company can provide meeting space in an evening. Jens’ post also has suggestions for meeting at places like universities and restaurants.

  • Topics. A good format for a monthly meeting is to arrange for someone interested in presenting something – a formal talk, a whiteboard talk, sharing an experience report, really anything – followed by discussion time.

  • Date. Having a regular meeting day and time lets people know when to expect a meeting even if they don’t come every month. Of course, avoid major holidays.

How can I present at a local user group?

Most groups are hungry for new presenters. Contact the group in your area or in an area that you’ll be traveling to. Some groups have the flexibility to schedule a special meeting if it means having speaker that is only in town for a few days.

Some groups have special contact forms for presenters. Those links are included here as “(presenters)” when they are available. Meeting C++ provides the Meeting C++ User Group contact form which allows anyone to contact one or more groups at a time.
