    James did a great job. Flexbox is the future and I'm glad we had a chance to learn something about it. This was also my first Front-End Devs Meetup, it was well organized, in a great location and everybody was really friendly and open. Thanks All!

    If you ever get the chance to hear James speak, do so. He's a great teacher.

    Excellent. Just excellent. A polished presentation. Even though we can't plunge into using Flexbox just yet, it is very useful to wrap our brains around the new concepts. This is a real break from the past -- box models, floats, ack!

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.
