On the 16th Feburary, the Budapest New Technology Meetup celebrated its 5th birthday.¬†When starting the meeting 5 years ago, I wouldn’t have thought that it would last so long. Heck, I wouldn’t even think that we’d have 5 lectures each month for the duration of a single year – after all, who could list 60 interesting topics from almost as many interesting people at any one time? But to prove us wrong, we’ve had over 300 lectures already during all these years.

But, it seems the ‘Meetup is still going strong here in Budapest, and has been a source of inspiration for a lot of other similar events, such as the SciFi Meetup, the OFF (Frontend) Meetup, the JavaScript Meetup, Design Meetup and the Science Meetup – just to name a few.

Now only if the meetup.com guys could migrate their site to use UTF-8, and handle all Hungarian characters properly…
