Thank you Yahoo! for sponsoring this event!
Hope you can join us for this first Apache Drill meet-up of 2014. Snacks & socialize 6:00pm Talks start at 7:00pm.
We plan to video tape this event but do not plan to have live remote access.
And we are trying something new: a few days before the event, we will provide a specific hashtag for a Twitter connection to the event so those interested in Drill but living in other time zones can provide comments/questions they would like introduced live during the meet-up. Stay tuned here and via @ApacheDrill (do you follow us on Twitter?)
See you in February.
