VIDEO: Meet the Organizers

Back in December, the local organizers behind LA’s top events & communities gathered for a holiday dinner. Marina Zd of Santa Monica New Tech sat down with a few of the attendees to ask them a simple question — “Why do you do what you do?”

Joe Devon really does answer this question best when he says, “Start your own community if you feel like you are missing something, because I really started [LA PHP] just to fulfill a need of my own. The community has done for me than I could have ever done for it. As hard as all the work is, it’s all been worth it.”

This 15 minute video gives you some great insights into the people behind the scenes who bring the dreamers, the hackers, and the entire world together to make the LA tech scene what it is.
