    Excellent talk. I think the fee for events should be at least $5 or maybe even more.

      There's a $1 fee for the event. You can either pay via Meetup or, as Alison indicated, write a check.

    Looking forward to this topic. Is anybody else going to the Open Automotive (GENIVI) in San Diego the week before this event?

      I am a participant in the "Developers Rule!" panel also featuring Jim Zemlin of Linux Foundation, John Ellis of Ford, and Joel Clark of Intel. I also work a bit with GENIVI, so yep, I'll be there. GENIVI has a public newsletter; please sign up if you are interested:
