    My son Owen was upset at the absence of magic tricks, but other than that, really enjoyed the talk last night.

    NOTE to those who didn't notice: NEW LOCATION! This month's meetup is listed as being @DevJam (south minneapolis), NOT at the SmartThingsHQ like it has been.

    Excited to see everyone there!

    No babysitter, sorry. I was looking forward to it, Dan! The Dude will take good care of you all in the new location, I'm sure. :)

      Yeah, Thursday nights are tough for me, man. Barely ever make it to a user group I really want to attend more frequently. Maybe us dads should bring our kids and draw straws or take turns to see which one will have to skip the presentation and watch all the tykes XD

    Hmm, actually, I'm really a "maybe."

    If anyone is looking I'll be looking for a lead dev for building a REST api in a RAD framework, for a big js framework to power a inventory management system for very small businesses. What those tools are depends on the dev we find.

    This is a startup, but we already know folks want it, and have almost 300k of their names & contact information to sell to. It's also (mostly) greenfield development, we'll pull in the old code selectively, but we won't be wallowing in sunk costs either.
