The second installment of Shopify Meetup Columbus took place January 11th, 2017 at Mikey's Late Night Slice, and was successful in its mission (and attendance). Chase and I started the meetup with inspiration from Columbus Web Group and other local meetups to try and start a community based around the platform we love and spend our days working in. Whether you are an established seller, agency owner, or just wanting to learn about Shopify, we wanted a local group that could get together for networking and a little fun outside of work.
People came with their questions ready, and the hosts and speakers all did their best to answer them. Hopefully can create a lasting dialogue and help both the merchants and experts in the city grow together.
Thanks to everyone who attended! Our next meetup will be March 22nd, 2018 at 6pm again at Mikey's Downtown.
