New York's Growing Mobile Developer Meetup Scene

I’m continuing my research into how various cities operate their developer meetups, with a focus on mobile developer gatherings. Today I’m focusing on New York City, a town that is fast becoming a contender with Silicon Valley for developer talent.

I went through the meetups for New York City and found the following mobile developer meetup groups:

While New York does not have the volume of members that San Francisco has, it is definitely a close second. I also notice that NYC has a couple more workshop, learning based meetups--which tells me the community identifies the need for ramping up new mobile developers, which seems crucial.

Beyond that, the patterns seem similar to San Francisco. I’m not sure if this is because it is the model that works, or if NYC is emulating San Francisco. Only the data will tell.

More to come...
