Help us plan our next meeting!

We had a great meeting on July 27, where we heard from  from James Kies about his newest venture, LeadershipGamez.com. Now we’re looking for speakers for the next meeting. If you have a favorite technology you’ve been working with or a new project you’re really excited about, we want to hear from you! You don’t have to be a professional speaker; you just have to be willing to get up there and talk to us. If you’d like to speak to our group, please contact us with the details.

Also, check out our Events page for information on upcoming meetings and other local technology events.

Who are we?
