    We will be kicking this meetup off with a 4 week series of talks.


    What's the structure?

    We will kick off each evening with a short 30 minute talk. Topics will vary depending on the evening. After the talk, the space is available for beginners and developers to continue code/develop/hack on whatever they prefer. For beginners, we have our prework for everyone to work through.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
