    Good meetup, especially interesting to hear from John. I'd like to hear from a Swift expert again about best-practices around deploying smaller Swift clusters (hundreds of terabytes), but with headroom.

    Ideas/suggestions for future meets:
    - round table Q&A
    - code walk-throughs from those with intimate knowledge of various components
    - coding tutorials/hands-on (I will not say "dojo" - seriously, do I look like the karate kid?!), how to create Swift plug-ins, how to customise the Nova scheduler.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
