Cincinnati Coworks had its first event last Thursday, and it was one for the geeks.  Chris Wanstrath, CEO/co-founder of Github and Cincinnati native, spoke for about an hour on the git version control system and Github.  As a bonus, he spoke for about 30 mins. on how Github.com got started and has grown to 10 employees and millions of dollars in revenue. He also talked about the future of Github and some opinions on entrepreneurship (#1 tip: “Use your brains”).

Event-wise, we stuffed 32 geeks into our space, brought in some beverages and ZZ’s pizza.  Unfortunately, we only had about half as many chairs, but people made do with balance balls, windows seats and the floor.  So the event was in fact standing room only!

Here are some pictures from the Meetup pool.
