    The event was great. Met some nice people. I liked the location because it was central. But the space was really small for the amount of people and loud. People were screaming at each other to talk. Since the group is expanding, we may have to look at moving to a larger space or add curtains to absorb sound?

      It's a different place everytime, more or less downtown. Usually, hosted at some company's office.

    Awesome event tonight. If any developers are looking to mix doing good with programming, my startup (Sproot) is looking for a developer partner. We're a charitable shopping program that turns everyday purchases into funding. We're pretty much ready to go, just need you.

    The venue was hard to find because there are no shop numbers and I wandered around to look for it. Next time maybe post a mall map showing where it is. My two bytes worth...
