    Hey all! I think I left my notebook at Philly Nexus tonight... It has a girl on the front that kind of looks like Audrey Hepburn on a red background, and it just has programming notes inside. However I rely heavily upon my notes and would greatly appreciate having it returned if anyone has it!! :) Please let me know if someone finds it and I can arrange to retrieve it! Thanks! :)

    Is it alright if I'm about 20-30 mins late? I'd love to go but I'd be coming straight from work.

    So do we bring a laptop to work on something or do we just watch the fellows and their mentors work on stuff?

      It's best to bring a laptop, but if you don't have one available there's probably plenty to contribute and learn just shoulder surfing
