    Folks, this Meetup event will be the exact same format as the last Meetup event that was held on March 25th, 2014. If you attended that one, please free to attend it again! But if you missed it the last time, this is your opportunity to learn about BIRT in quite a lot of detail, and get hands-on with it as well! If you have your own laptop (Windows or Mac), do bring it along for the hands-on BIRT training; otherwise, a few laptops will be provided for use that day.
