This weekend we got the TeachStreet band back together at Seattle Startup Weekend (@joesunga, @swindsor, and myself, along with our new friend @jason2burt) to build a website that’s been on our minds for quite some time now.
Seattle Brewed (SeattleBrewed.org) is a showcase of the incredible people in the Seattle tech community. Inspired by sites such as We Are NY Tech, the goal is to look beyond the CEOs & founders to the developers, designers, marketers and others whose talents fuel our local industry. Anyone can create a profile (we punted the geo-fencing for our MVP, so don’t signup unless you’re a Seattleite!), fill our a fun MadLibs style biography, and answer some questions regarding topics specific to your role in the community. Once you’ve done that, you have a chance to be featured in our regular emails and have the spotlight for a day.
Our goal is keep the site up and running, continue developing the features we didn’t quite get to in a day-and-a-half (there are some pretty cool ones on the backlog!), and make this a valuable resource for the Seattle tech community. If you’re part of this community, please check out the site, create a profile, and let us know what you think.
Also, the code is a little rough in places, but we’re hoping to clean it up and get a public repo up on github at some point so that other communities can benefit from the platform as well.
