I have already registered and have my ticket printed. I do not know how large the event will be, but it should be exciting and informative.

The announcement was too close for me to schedule a trip on the middle of a week.

Next time you should give us a little more time in advance and maybe schedule on a Friday would help "out of towners".

Just my two cents.

Same here, unfortunately. I'd love to attend, but I can't swing it on such short notice.. Smiley Sad

Re: [April Event] Developer Meetup @ Roku HQ!

I hope there will be enough turnout to make this a monthly event, just like other Meetups in the area (e.g. some i frequent are iOS, .Net, BAyPIGgies, large-scale production engineering, game dev).

I doubt traveling in from out-of-state will ever be worth it but hey, if there is a presentation/talk - perhaps "the revolution will be televised"?
Now, only if there existed some device or technology that can stream video over the internet...

@EnTerr,

A streaming event might indeed be a great marketing tool to bring in more developers into the fold. Maybe someone at Roku will see your idea and set that up for the 2nd Developer meetup.

Re: [April Event] Developer Meetup @ Roku HQ!

Maybe they would get a better response by sending out an e-mail to everyone with a Roku Developer account. Given the number of Roku channels being developed, and the level of activity on the Developer Forum, I would guess that the majority of actual Roku Developers don't even participate in the forums, unless they have a particular problem that they can't solve on their own. I get several such e-mails from other companies, which I find useful in letting me know if there's an upcoming event (physical or virtual) that I might be interested in; they're easy to unsubscribe from if I'm not interested.
