We're very excited to have a new home for #XXHack nights. Valerie Concepcion, an engineer at Groupon, and Carrie McComb, tech recruiter, have arranged for us to have access to one of their training rooms each week!
This is great for a bunch of reasons:
1) We've got a centrally located dedicated room that's OURS
2) We can start getting more mentors coming in to help out
3) If we want to do 'lightning talks' or anything else like that, we've got a space that's ready to handle it
4) Valerie is a Ruby programmer and psyched to have more women to code with!
Since it's in the Groupon building, we have to have security access.
Make sure you RSVP on http://gathers.us/eve... each week so that your name is on the security list. I know this is two RSVPs, but this is what Groupon uses for their events, so until one of us write some code to pull RSVPs from this Meetup group OVER to the gathers.us site. . . this is what we've got.
Hope to see a of of you there on Thursday . . . warning. I may bring milk&cookies again!
