This will be a special meetup sponsored by Amazon. They are going to host us at Maggiano's Restaurant and have one of their own provide us with some inside insights into their testing practices. There will be limited space at this event so sign up soon and only if you are actually going to be able to attend the event. This way we can make sure that those that want to attend can get a spot!
Thanks guys! This will be a great one!
