Calling all Flathead Valley programmers or programming enthusiasts. Its time again to block out a little time in your calendar, at the end of your week, at the end of the month to spend some time with cohorts who speak geek.
Wow did we have fun at our January meeting. Grouse did an awesome job setting up in a very comfortable room that is an offshoot of their very classy bar. We had it all to ourselves and they did an excellent job taking care of us with drinks and food.
Many of our regular enthusiasts were there, but also new friends as well. There were even people who didn't know there were other programmers besides themselves out in the remote wilderness of Montana.
We talked about so many different topics it would be impossible to list because I didn't hear most of them. What I was able to get in on were some great topics, like the Maker Faire coming up at FVCC on Feb 22, the ease of spinning up nodejs sites and a super easy to implement node blog engine called ghost. We talked about a guy that we are going to try and get to come out to our meetings who has done some pretty intense development on an iPad in Lua and has a fully functional internal combustion engine model. There was some discussion about the Startup Weekend Missoula that is coming very soon on March 7 and maybe even one that will be closer to home soon after that.
We talked about so many subjects, so lets keep the conversations going. Feel free to arrive late or leave early. Its just a great way to hear some of whats going on in the Montana related techie world.
See everyone soon.
