Of course we're delighted that so many members and others are eager to hear Joe Hummel tell us about the new parallel processing features in the C++ standard. Between our two organizations we now have 70 registrations for a room with a capacity of 60.
Experience shows that there are always a few no-shows: people who intended to come but encountered some last-minute problem. Like the airlines, therefore, we took a few more reservations than we have seats.
So here's what we'll do Tuesday:
- If you have a confirmed reservation, please check in by 6:15. (If you're absolutely certain you'll attend and know that you can't arrive until after 6:15 then send me an E-mail at [address removed] promising what time you'll arrive, and I'll hold your place for you.)
At 6:20 if the room isn't full we shall invite
- people on the meetup "waiting list"
- anyone else who's waiting (i.e. those without reservations and latecomers who reserved)
We hope to accommodate everyone who comes. Depaul and the Chicago Fire Department, however, are very strict about enforcing room capacity. Again, if you find that you won't attend, PLEASE CANCEL your reservation so someone else can join us.
Note that our speaker will make more-or-less the same presentation this Saturday at Code Camp.
We or another organization may also be able to prevail upon the speaker for a repeat presentation later this summer.
