Janis Machala's presentation was a big hit, with some VERY positive feedback provided by several participants (like "Highly experienced and knowledgable. I could have listened for hours." -- seriously, where have you ever heard somebody volunteering to listen to somebody else for hours!). Here is a link to her slides:

Mei Lu of www.Jobfully.com has helped line up some serious design talent for the second meetup, so we expect to have at least as much fun. The time is Friday, May 25, noon to 2. Here are the details:
Rails Meetup: We are piloting an informal Rails Meetup on Wednesday afternoon, 3-6 at the warehouse. Bring your laptops, your questions, and your genius, and make some progress on your rails app or service.

We are connecting with lawyers, accountants, iPhone developers, .net developers, lean startup experts, investors, and more. Expect more meetups and workshops to come online soon.
