It should be called an Amazing start. Around 60 ppl gathered at BrewHaha,Koramangala in Bangalore. The event was scheduled to start at 11 AM and it did start by then.
With around 60 ppl turning up in the event, the event definitely got a big thumbs up.
One of the early reachers for the meet was Jace
Jace happens to be one of the organisers for BCB and there is always a great learning involved when such people are around.
I am trying to put up the list of some of the people present for the event.( Thanks to Himanshu for having consolidated this information for us 🙂 )
When me ( Vaibhav) and Ramjee first met on 12th August at Woody’s restaurent in Jayanagar for dinner, we never thought that 60 ppl will turn up for the event. Our estimates ( even on the day of the event) were around 35. Its really amazing to see and experience the kind of energy people bring with them at such events.
Below piece of info is taken from Himanshu’s blog

Although, people have been giving me and Ramjee a thumbsup for the efforts, personally i feel that its the community which makes such events possible and succesfull. My special thanks go to all those who attended and all those who guided us for this event. When it comes to the guidance part, i must thank Siddhi and Vijay.
A lot of things got discussed and a lot of action seems to be getting seeded. Hope to have great times together.
The next Open Coffee Club meet in Bangalore is scheduled on 2nd September. Hoping to catch you all again.
