|Prague, Czech Republic||443|
Meetups strengthAfter looking at a few websites, and talking to a few colleagues, I've realized that Meetup.com is a pretty good indication into how active a local community can be. It's not a 100% accurate, but it's surprisingly close.
Here's the same table as before, with the added number of members on the local AngularJS + Meteor Meetup groups:
|Prague, Czech Republic||443||158|
It's all relativeThere's something we're forgetting here - these cities have very different sizes.
For the final table, I've decided to show the Indeed and Meetup numbers (separately),
relative to each city's population:
|City||# of people per 1 Job||# of people per 1 Meetup Member|
|Prague, Czech Republic||2842||7968|
ConclusionI wasn't surprised to see Amsterdam & London among the top cities.
Brussels was quite a shocker to be honest. I've heard that the city is quite concentrated when it comes to Tech,
but I had no idea that it would come on top on the final table.
Seeing Vienna almost at the bottom did reflect my assumptions towards the local scene there - while very much alive and kicking, it's not very substantial when you're reminded that Vienna has a population of 1.8 Million.
By the way, the 2nd and 3rd tables are sortable.
