Hi everyone, we've had a less-than-expected response rate for tomorrow night's Holiday Party, so I'm emailing one last time in case some of you would like to come. I know the holidays mean a lot is happening on weekend nights, but I figure if you find out we'll be having FREE PIZZA, that might be something that gets you to come. The pizza is being sponsored courtesy of Fizz Corp, who has been sponsoring our food at most of the lunchtime meetups in October and November. It'll be at 6:30pm at Pizza Bistro, which used to be Mangia Pizza, up at 12001 Burnet Road (just off MoPac, north of Braker).
And don't forget we'll be having the Random Album Cover contest, a really fun way to show your skills and get to know your fellow designers. I gave the explanation for how the contest works on the RSVP page. Suffice it to say that it's a short competition, about 45 minutes, for designers (working alone or in teams, depending on how many workstations we have) to create an album cover with a fictitious band and album title. When it's over, we share our designs, vote on the best won, and the winner(s) get a copy of a 227-page eBook from Sitepoint, called The Principles of Beautiful Web Design.
So yes, we need you to come, but especially if you have a laptop (or iMac or other portable workstation) with some kind of design software loaded on it. Photoshop, GIMP, or something. Right now we have three maybe four or five, but if we get a bunch more people, we'll have to go to teams of three or more. Usually this works best in teams of two.
So please come tomorrow night! RSVP now for the meetup tomorrow night, and if you could please answer the question about bringing a laptop. And happy holidays everyone!
