I thought it was a very positive experience. I learned a good deal, got some good resources, enjoyed the presentation and the people were very friendly and willing to share info. I intend to keep attending.
Being this was the first meetup for this group it went well. Art, as he's done in the past, took up the task to lead the meetup but I think we should have spent a bit more time on getting the group to identify just exactly what they intend to get out of these meetings.
It was a lot organizational with much discussion. The projector & screen should be flip-flopped, and the treasurer kept where he was. Leave an aisle behind the screen and people can come in, pay, and be seated. Would also allow wait-staff easier access to things.
