This month we're going to Digicom Electronics, an Electronics manufacturing services company in Oakland.
As usual we can only accommodate small groups so please only RSVP yes for the meetup if you 1) would really benefit from the tour and 2) can make it on the date on time. If you do need to cancel please do it at least 24h in advance so that people on the waitlist have time to plan. Finally, use the comments to arrange carpooling!
