WE ATTENDED THE SEATTLE MECH KEYS MEETUP AND IT WAS FANTASTIC!
With the Seattle Mech Keys Meetup now behind us, we reflect on how it all went and what all went down. The talks, the boards, the people, everything was great, and we can't wait to attend the next one.

▶ TALKS The talks were really interesting, especially for me not knowing a lot about mechanical keyboards (yet). I'm learning pretty fast working at Massdrop, but having heard the stories and everything else that the speakers had to say was immensely helpful. Here's a list of the speakers and what they spoke about:

▶ BOARDS & CAPS The event organizers said that there were around 300 boards, but even that was being conservative. I made sure to check out as much as possible, but between that and talking to everyone I could, it was difficult to take a close look at everything that was there. The picture below doesn't do the meetup justice!

▶ GIVEAWAYS All the sponsors of the event, including us of course, brought loads of stuff to give out to attendees. The majority of all who attended were able to walk away with something which was really great. We gave out a pair of Massdrop x AKG K7XX Audiophile Headphones, a GMK Plum keycap set, some Massdrop x NuForce IEMS, a couple gem artisan keycaps, a bunch of wooden wrist rests, and MORE keycaps! Here are some of the winners below:

Shoutout to the champion in the bottom left here. He went and took pictures of himself with the NuForce headphones he won and said "I provided a bunch of options for you!" No one told him to do this and it's such a funny shot.
▶ FUN EVENT FACTS · Attendees: 222 · Giveaway Items: 177 · Photo Booth Pics: 313 · Keyboards: +300 · Keycaps: Probably a billion, let's be honest.

Lastly (but certainly not leastly), a BIG shoutout to the event organizers and volunteers who put this event together. You could see the hard work they put in leading up to and during this meetup and we all had a blast as a result. Cannot wait until the next one, and the ones after that.

Volunteers hard at work. Seriously, and not all of them are pictured here, they're the real MVP's.

I'm gonna have to like triple the size of the giveaway crew if we want to handle that _and_ give me time to actually go see boards! Haha
