Despite the obstacles, like torrential downpours and a freight train stuck across the tracks, over 500 people attended the ATX Dribbble Meetup at Austin Beer Garden and Brewing Company during SXSW!
Just three years ago, we worked with our friends at Paravel to host the first meetup for SXSW. It rained back then too, but 75 of our friends and folks we’d never met before from around the country showed up. We’re big supporters of the Dribbble community, so we were more than happy to roll up our sleeves and do our part to make this annual event a success.
We were surprised and honored to have the @atxdribbble community be the first recipient of the famed Silver Bucket. What a way to end the party! The award is out for engraving and will reside at the Happy Cog office in Austin for the next year.
This meetup made me so appreciative of the web community we have here in Austin. I felt proud that this was the introduction that out-of-towners got to our industry and our city, and it was great catching up with old friends and making new ones. I really couldn’t have asked for more! —Sophie Shepherd, Senior Designer and ATX Dribbble Organizer
