Hey MelbJVM'ers 

We trust you've had the opportunity to get some Christmas and Holiday cheer and you're slowly getting back into the swing of things at work. 

January is the month we meet for drinks.  Its pretty informal, no talks, no sponsors, just interested devs meeting up at a local and having a chat about Java, JVM languages, movies and race cars.

We're having drinks at CQ Bar, just up the road from the usual Peoplebank venue on Queen St, its between Little Collins and Bourke St.  We are in the Lanai Bar which is upstairs from the main bar, just for MelbJVM.

Just a note, as this event is a sponsor free, this is a self funded event.  However there is a decent bar menu at CQ and reasonably priced beers. We'll trust you'll like the venue and the excuse to enjoy some beers out of the heat.

      Hi Anil, thx for joining the group. Usually January we just do an informal drinks at a pub since everyone is still in holiday mode. That said, if anyone wants to talk briefly about what projects & tech they've been playing with over the break then we can easily accommodate that.

    Okay, given the first Wednesday of Jan falls on New Years Day, it may be a bit hard to have a coherent meetup topic! :-)

    So we'll move this a few weeks ahead. We usually do drinks at a bar but open to suggestions for other activities.

    Open to dates (Keeping with Wednesday I suggest Wed 15th / Wed 22nd?) but let me know what suits.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
