Thanks to everyone who came to our inaugural meetup in Austin last night! A headcount at one point in the night put us at about 120 people, which is fantastic. Big thanks to Katie Kovalcin for organizing.
Jason Weaver used the Meetup.com API to make a fun grid of the avatars of the people who RSVP'd:
Jason is going to be taking over the Austin CodePen Meetup, so we'll post about when the next Austin one is as soon as we can.
From what I heard, it was a unique mix of people for Austin. Lots of new faces.
.@CodePen meetup last night was legit. So much nerd. So much wow.

We did a pub quiz with some nerdy web questions and managed to give away all the swag we brought.
Awesome night. Met some fellow front end nerds, won a round of CSS/HTML pub trivia. Thanks, @CodePen! Love y'all!
