If you didn’t see your city on our list of groups, you should create your own Facebook group.
We like keeping things as local as possible, so please create groups only for cities, or even smaller areas. The whole point is that your people shouldn’t be more than 15-20 minutes away from each other.
Please, do not create groups for a whole State/province/department/county/etc. as they will not be added to the list.
Now, to the fun part! It’s easy, just follow these steps:
Set your group to public.
You’ll need to add at least one person in order to create the group. Why not add Justin!? Furthermore, if you make him an admin, he’ll be able to assist you in managing your members and events.
Set the group’s privacy setting to public.
Set your group’s membership approval to where any member can add or approve members
Click the “Customize Address” button.
Enter “free.code.camp.yourcitysname” with each word separated by periods. Example: free.code.camp.london
(Not “your.london” or “your.city.london”!)
http://www.freecodecamp.com. It makes it much easier for possible new members to find you if you mention the country your city is in (or its state/province if in North America).
Note: in this image, we also use “Testland” as an EXAMPLE, but you should use the name of your city instead.
