Jelly Coworking Meetup Electron Workshop 18 July

If you have been thinking about trying coworking, there is no better time to give it a whirl than this Friday 18 July 2014 at the regular Melbourne Jelly Meetup which once again is being held at Electron Workshop.

Jelly
If you aren’t sure what a Jelly (www.workatjelly.com) is, I published a post about it on 6 January 2014 – ‘Jelly provides a taste of coworking‘.

In brief, Jelly is a movement that creates the opportunity for casual #coworking at different spaces around the world on a semi regular basis.

The Jelly ‘movement’ began in February 2006 in New York City. Since then, the movement has grown and there are over 100 cities around the world that are involved.

You can find a list of participating cities from Jelly‘s wiki – wiki.workatjelly.com.

Jelly is open to anyone and it’s free!’

In my hometown Melbourne Victoria Australia there is a Jelly group available and it’s run through www.meetup.com. Here’s the link to Melbourne Jelly (via www.meetup.com).

I’ve been to a few Jelly Meetups so far. A couple last year were held at the then new ‘Collins Collective‘ coworking space, centrally located at the top end of Collins Street, Melbourne (Suite 6, Level 6 Collins Street). The others were at Electron Workshop in North Melbourne, an established and innovative coworking space run by Nick Jaffe and Martin Gleeson, which is where the event is being held this Friday.

I must say I met some really interesting nice people and learned a few things too.

The Space
Electron Workshop is a quiet coworking space that attracts numerous independents as well as people working in the digital media industry. It’s friendly, convenient, near great cafes, Victoria Market, not very far from public transport and has a nice relaxed vibe. Oh yes, I mustn’t forget to mention the cappuccino machine and ping pong table. They even have an in-house theatre.

Electron Workshop … Friday 18 July 2014 …

This month’s Electron Workshop Jelly is extra special as they’re putting on a special champagne breakfast (RSVP needed via Melbourne Jelly Meetup and there are limited spaces).

The Jelly option is a great opportunity to trial coworking. Some people come to just get out of their office, especially home office and to have a change of pace or scene for the day or a few hours. Others jump at the chance to get fresh ideas by way of chatting to fellow ‘jelliers’.
Whatever suits you, it’s a pretty casual affair.

Jelly is open to anyone and it’s free!

Cheers, Jane Deany

Jelly provides a great opportunity to checkout the coworking scene, have a change of scene from your usual coworking space, which in my case is Hub Melbourne, or simply do your work in a different location for the day or a few hours. Whatever suits you, it’s a pretty casual affair.

Some of us decided to enjoy lunch in a park around the corner and soak up the sunshine and 23c autumn day, but now it’s back to work.

I hear there’s drinks on offer around 5.30pm!

If you want to check out coworking at Electron Workshop, (a regular Jelly host), it’s a great opportunity to do so.
