    Did anyone find a power cord left behind at the workshop last night? It's a black cord for a Lenovo computer.

    I'm on the waitlist- how do I know if there will be room for me? I would love to attend this. I've recently started reading Think Java and have been using IntelliJ. Would love to keep learning more and use this to be a successful QA.

      Hi Julie, If people who are signed up for the class change their RSVP to no, meetup will move people from the wait list to the class automatically. I believe you will get an email from meetup.
