    We may even have the design team come along to answer questions around how they did the video for the challenge.

  • Might be a little late
  • Thanks all, fantastic turnout and some nice meaty discussions-though that may not have been everyone's cup of tea :)
  • Regarding the meetup and the discussion we had, and the mention from @Karuji about the current format being older; I recently came across Lean Coffee (http://leancoffee.org/) which is a meeting/discussion technique for holding structure of a meeting but not creating the agenda prior to meeting.

    We may be able to explore this, not necessarily for the meetup, but perhaps for the post discussions, where agenda vote is replaced by topic vote. Just throwing it out there as a consideration, as I think with Lean Coffee it can make the discussion more valuable for more people.
  • @thelangfordian I'd like to attend a lean coffee to better understand it (I see there is a joburg one: https://www.meetup.com/Lean-Coffee-JHB/), but from just the description, I don't know how non-discussion content would fit in. For example the two talks we had that happened to run long were actually rooted in presentations. It could perhaps be a good option when we're low on "formal" content though?
