Good morning. Our goal is to provide a drink ticket and a name badge to all those that RSVP for this Thursday's meetup. We also want to know the approximate amount of Appetizers to order so please RSVP>
Elmer Thomas, "Developer Evangelist" at Anaheim based Sendgrid, is our speaker who will be presenting on the topic "How to increase your personal productivity as a developer."
Once again this meetup will be held at the typically off the beaten path haven of Durty Nelly's located at 2915 Red Hill Avenue. We will have a private room capable of holding 200 people and will provide appetizers and drinks and a great platform to network with other engineers and hear from a well known speaker.

Once again the long term goal of Tech in Motion: OC is to help facilitate a sense of community amongst tech professionals in the greater Orange County area. There is more variety of tech industry from a product standpoint in Orange County, CA than anywhere in the world and just because we are a metropolitan area and not a city should not mean that industry cannot benefit from a shared identity and a forum in which to network.
