As the organizer of this group, my primary goals for the group are (1) to enhance the use of NodeJS by professional software developers, and (2) to foster "community" among those using, or interested in using, NodeJS. Anything that runs contrary to these goals is counter-productive. I formed this group on Meetup to be an open, NOT restricted, group. It is NOT my intent to limit participation or attendance to anyone who has a bona fide interest in advancing the use and understanding of NodeJS. I am hopeful that the population of NodeJS Enthusiasts in southeast Florida expands. To me, it is important that NodeJS adoption by businesses expands. Recruiters play a role in this. I owe my present job to one. That said, decorum at meetings is essential, and further, I don't ever want to hear that developers avoid meetings because of the presence of recruiters. Some ground-rules may be needed regarding this, and constraints imposed on the activities of sponsors. I invite your comments, please.

Neither the police officer nor I asked you and the 2 others to leave. It was not an event for recruiters or vendors. Typically these type of events get over run with recruiters and we wanted to preserve the integrity of the event which in to enlighten and educate people to a great technology like NodeJS. The fact that Bianca came into my place of business to recruit was unprofessional. The fact that she had to be removed by police says even more.
If anyone would like more details I ask them to contact me directly.
