I have been building out a competitor to Meetup.com for the past month called Flawk.to. Since I was going to compete directly with Meetup.com I created the roadmap for Flawk to reflect that. I started to feel like I had this massive up hill battle to re-create all of Meetup.com's features. The more I talked to people in the community the more I realized that my goals for Flawk were more directly aligned with the problems I was seeing in tech meetups.
I have decided to reposition Flawk.to to focus on tech meetups only! Our short term goals of getting Flawk into a beta have not changed, there is some crossover with Meetup.com functionality, but is does change our focus soon after. As I am reworking the copy/marketing for Flawk I wanted to go right to the source of one of the best developer communities and ask for your opinion.
If you have any other comments or suggestions about what you would like to see in a technology focused Meetup.com please comment below!
