HH.js - Meta Meetup

HH.js - Meta Meetup

Public Service Announcement: After organizing more than 50 meetups since 2012, Martin Kleppe will pass the torch and make room for new people to step up.

Hamburg has a wide range of JavaScript-related meetups, such as node.HH, Hamburg React.js, dec0de, Hamburg AngularJS and more. We like seeing a diverse community growing but need some help to get it better organized.

Topics:

* Current state of HH.js
* How others are doing it (better)
* New people and ideas
