    Hi Pat - actually it does not matter if you're male or female, but the talks are geared towards developers as it's an overview of programming concepts and demonstrations on backend development.

    Hi all,
    I'm new to the group - I'm not a developer and I'm not a guy. Will it be awkward for the rest of you if I attend? I won't take it personal. Also, just the location on Outpost Dr?

    Thank you.
