    Thanks to Q for sponsoring the event and the food. I didn't eat at the event, but grabbed two wraps to bring home that I actually just ate ... they were delicious!

    Hi everyone, please be sure to park in the Promenade parking across the street for a flat rate of $3. Parking in the office building structure is crazy expensive ($20+)

    Really cool to see so many RSVP's for next month's meet up. The San Diego group had the CloudCheckr guys in and it turned out great. Aaron asked that I stress that this will truly be educational and not a push for CloudCheckr. Let's make this our best meet up to date, and give Aaron, and Aaron a big SoCal warm welcome (they'll need it coming from Rochester). Hope to see you all there!
