    Thanks Ed and company for organizing this event, and for hosting at MatchBOX. (a *very* nice space, BTW.) We had good attendance, and I look forward to future events.

    The Dart slides and code examples are all on github here:

    (Ping me if you want a snapshot zipfile of these Ed.)

    Great job by all three presenters! I'm not an "advanced" programmer/network guru/anything - and these were all understandable, and engaging presentations. I really did enjoy all three of them.

    I am very interested in Puppet, so I hope that is a go for Saturday.

    Beyond Broc and Dart, we're looking at talks on Puppet and Selenium, plus another one I heard about, something about using Python in soil research or something?

    Do you need to be a MatchBOX member to get in? I got the impression that was how it works

      No, you do not have to be a Matchbox member. You will be a guest of me, though, so try not to spill booze everywhere or something 8)

    Subject idea: Anyone interested in hearing about Google's Dart language sometime?
