Yesterday evening we held the first meetup of 2013: a book-themed event featuring Martin White discussing his new book, Enterprise Search, as well as Tony Russell-Rose and myself talking about Designing the Search Experience.
A brief history
Twigkit organized the first London Search Meetup in December 2009. Throughout 2010 and 2011 a dozen meetups were held, featuring talks from the likes of Stephen Arnold, Tony Russell-Rose, Martin Belam, Jeremy Bentley, Max Wilson, Vegard Sandvold, and many others. During that period over 400 members joined the group, making the London Search Meetup the second largest enterprise search meetup in the world (the Bay Area Search group being the largest). After going strong for over two years, the meetup group then took a break in 2012 (we got a bit too busy, sorry); but we’re now very pleased to be reigniting the group in 2013, and aim to have bi-monthly events throughout the year.
Calling all search enthusiasts
So if you are in or around London, we hope to see you at a search meetup soon. And, if you’re interested in giving a search-related talk at a future meetup, do get in touch.
