    A group of us have recently developed a Meetup plugin for WordPress.
    This plugin takes any events posted on a Meetup group and directly
    posts it to the related WordPress website. There is also a sidebar
    calendar widget for showing a Meetup group’s events in a simple
    format. This is all done through Meetup’s API. You can check out a
    demo site here: http://tucsonrecess.com/, the plugin here:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-meetup/ , and the plugin
    website here: http://nuancedmedia.com/wordpress-meetup-plugin/

    Our objective is to simplify the posting process and awareness of
    events for Meetup organizers who have a WordPress websites. With this
    plugin, organizers only have to post once on Meetup and the
    information gets distributed to their website. Nice and simple!

    We are now on version 1.2, so the project is still in its infancy and
    we are looking for feedback, contributors, etc. We are big believers
    in agile development, open source and will integrate suggestions and
    bug fixes as they are presented. We have already added functionality
    for custom post types and support for multiple groups.

    Here is why we think it is cool:

    WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) superstar; their
    services are used by 14% of the world’s best websites. Meanwhile,
    Meetup is on the vanguard of internet based social networks. They have
    9.5 million members who meet over 2,000 times everyday in local
    communities across the nation.

    Over 42,000 Meetup members in 146 cities in 10 countries are talking
    about WordPress everyday according to Meetup’s statistics.

    Until now, there has been no efficient way to link an organization’s
    Meetup events easily and efficiently to their WordPress site. Nuanced
    Media has filled that need with the WP Meetup plugin.

    WP Meetup fetches event information from Meetup.com and creates posts
    for each event. Additionally, WP Meetup provides an event calendar for
    displaying upcoming events either on a page on as a widget.

    Organizations seeking to create a comprehensive calendar of events can
    collect events from multiple Meetup groups. It has never been so easy
    to aggregate and display events!

    COMMENTS, FEEDBACK, YELLING is welcome 🙂

    PS @sbruner was the one that suggested we add custom post type functionality. Thanks again for the feed back 🙂
