Your first event will be
– an UnOfficial #AfterParty in your local city
– preroll for the conference you’d attend if your company were making $3,000,000/month

Both. Mutually inclusive of BOTH. [#DJapi, 2 #ExternalAPI’s together for one crappy little event you do]

BIG Problem: You’re gonna wanna hire someone to do all these details

Solution. You cannot delegate this core function. You can’t outsource distribution or you will die. D is For Distribution which is #cs183d which ⁦‪@StanfordEng‬⁩ skipped.
