    Informative presentation to a point. Speaker seemed unable to give much detail regarding HPCCSystem and end user and analytics/business applications.
    Very glad I went and I'm keeping eye on HPCCsystems for future use.
    Would recommend to a friend.

    Very good Meetup. Charles did an excellent job in explaining HPCCSystems' Thor product with ECL. Kudos go to LexisNexis in providing the pizza and sodas for the Meetup.

    For those attending the meetup this evening:

    We only have our room on the 2nd floor from 6:30 - 8:30 and the room is often in use prior. Please don't show up before 6:30 or you may interrupt another meeting in progress.

    That said, because we plan to have a full house tonight, there is a possibility it will be a tight fit. If you are coming this evening, try to show up between 7-7:15PM or risk standing. :)

    Humm. Isn't that the one that collapsed? Let's hope all is fixed. It costs $6 for 2-3 hours. I'm parking on street

  • Trish McCall

    I had the same question! :-) Street parking is one option. There is also the Centergy parking deck on 5th/Abercombie St. Not sure how much it is. See you there!
