Wazer meet-ups - the next big thing...



Recently, we convened a couple of super-user meet-ups in Parish5 and Palo Alto, CA, bringing together top Wazers from around the world with the intention of connecting them to one another face-to-face (many already knew eachother from the Forums), and seizing the opportunity to glean their invaluable feedback about our product…

With users like ours, it goes without saying that both meetings were a great success, but what surprised us even more was the initiative taken by local Waze communities to create meet-ups of their own!

Just a few weeks ago, 14 Slovak Wazers and 1 from the Czech Republic gathered to discuss all things Waze and came up with a list of feature requests and bugs that they sent over to our attention. Meet up organizer, Wazer guri211, also shared some positive feedback about recent updates such as the 3.0 design and new map editor, which was really nice to hear. And only a few days ago, the Hungarian Wazer community had a small meet-up, set up by Wazer Wroadd, with the intention of organizing a larger meet-up with Waze staff in Budapest sometime in May.

Without getting too corny, you guys never cease to amaze us. We love the way a few super committed Wazers have organized to bring users together in their communities, and we want the trend to continue! If any of you out there want to bring a Wazer meet-up to your area and can bring together a dozen or more local Wazers, we'd love to send one or two of our staff people out to share some behind-the-scenes info and hear what you guys have to say. If it sounds like something you'd like to do, don't be shy, make it happen! We really enjoy the chance to get out and meet you guys...
