We will meet every Sunday, 1-4pm at Rackspace (we will skip Memorial Day Weekend – May 26th).

There is also a free Command Line crash course http://cli.learncodethehardway.org/book/

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
