As we discussed last meeting, we are consistently overbooking in the current venue. Although the A/V is awesome at Your Office, I would much rather see the group continue to grow.
I went and visited the new Cork & Olive location in Lake Mary and it's awesome! They could in theory accomodate our entire 250+ member group. I'm really excited to start meeting here next month.
I took some pictures: http://www.flickr.com/photos/philpalmieri/sets/72157634379601327/ you can see the separate meeting space, as well as the sitting areas and our countertop desks we used this afternoon for an office.
Normally they ask $100 to be spent as a group so they can stay open late, keep staff on hand, etc.. The owner was super cool though and waived the fee to see if we can build the group there. - Plus he is an old IT guy from IBM who is enjoying his 'retirement' running a beer/wine lounge. If you are not a drinker, there is no pressure - but, if you enjoy a beer/wine etc.. please don't be shy, buy some, drink some, enjoy - and help support a cool local business.
Lastly, I had to move the meeting the 24th of July - we can decide next month if we want to keep it or go back to the 3rd Wed. - If this is going to be a big issue or, you don't think you can make it - please let me know so we dont have a 5 person meeting.
Lastly, Lastly,... I am looking for someone who is good with a NoSQL flavor (couch/mongo/neo4j, etc..) to do a crash course in NoSQL for the group... any takers?
Thanks again, enjoy the holiday, and see you all next month!
