      I'm glad you figured this out! We encourage pre-registration, as it helps us make sure we have enough food and drink for everyone.

    I didn't know what to expect, but I'm sure my expectations were exceeded. The atmosphere was energized and all the people I encountered were friendly and open and interesting. The socializing was fun. The meeting was well organized, the presenters were top notch. I've already marked my calendar to attend the next meeting.

    Very good meeting, good presenters, and what a bunch of friendly people! Highlight? Has to be the 5 minute quack warning...

    • Thubten

      I'd alternate between duck and beaver alarms, but what sound does a beaver make?

    Doing my "shout out" for the Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference (PNSQC) as Thubten recommended. Check out their website: http://www.pnsqc.org. It is a SW Quality Conference that has speaker seasons on management, agile, QA, dev, etc... They are looking for speakers that have a passion on a topic and want to share it before others. Their call for papers ended tonight, but if you are interested, please contact me (www.joshuaburley.com) and we'll see how we can help you get an abstract submitted. Thanks all!!
