As I previously mentioned, these meetups are very organized. Speakers are thorough, screen projectors to follow along with the material the speaker provides, Q&A after each talk, parking, wi-fi available, and much more. But you will have to attend the meetups yourself to find out just what exactly is the ‘much more’ part I am referring to.
