As I mentioned in my previous post, I have some friends who are not applying to SeedCapital because they are by themselves. Unfortunately there isn’t yet a place where people can see what projects are in need of more people. It is also not that easy to meet someone on-line to work together. We need a certain trust in that person, etc.
I think the best way to meet people that are interested, smart and have initiative is to attend one of the many hacker events that are held monthly (or at least regularly). In Lisbon we have several of them:
Twittlis – monthly meeting of twitter.com users in Lisbon
AltLab Hackerspace Lisbon
Lisbon Perl Mongers Group
Comunidade Portuguesa de Rich Internet Applications
Lisbon Ruby Group
Gathering of Developers
One Over Zero Group
Do you know of any other groups?
Update (13/12/2009): Since this post I’ve found out about the following groups:
XAMLPT – Comunidade Portuguesa para Tecnologias de Apresentação da Microsoft: WPF, Silverlight, Surface
Portuguese Ubuntu Community
Mobile Monday Portugal
Confraria Security & IT
