UPDATE: Hey, if any of you would like to talk with me, please ping me on skype[meSingh90]. Will love to know more about your local dev community and your city.
I'm going for WebSummit in Lisbon this November and have been thinking about extending my stay to explore Europe's dev/startup communities. If I were to travel to your city, would you be interested in meeting and sharing some thoughts with me?
I'm always fascinated by the way developers work in different locations, what approaches they take to solve the most common problems, and how they build their systems.
I've been working as a freelance consultant from the last eight years and have been fortunate enough to work with more than 25 startups/companies in different scenarios and engagements. Although most of them have been near my location, still it has been fascinating to see how different they all have been.
Not just how to tackle everyday problems in their business but also how to find solutions (mostly hacks) to fix these problems.
These experiences have taught me a lot in my life, and now I want to expand my horizon and travel beyond my home country to see how developers all over the world do it and maybe work with them to understand them better.
I'm planning to visit Europe this November for WebSummit, and after that, I would love to travel more in Europe to different locations. So, if you can spare some time in November, even for a few hours of the day, please reach out to me. I will plan my trip according to the response I get and would love to meet you all.
BTW: I'm pretty good at #Laravel, so if there are any Laravel communities out there in Europe, I will like to visit them too.
