    Thanks Paul, i would like that. Is there anyone there tonight who knows jquery mobile?

    May 21, 2012

  • Paul B.

    I can help you with that, but I won't actually be there, so we'd have to set up some other time to meet or work remotely.

    Does anyone know jQuery Mobile really well. I just recently optimized my site for it and I am trying to get it to work. I will be coming rather late for this event.

  • Paul B.

    A recent turn of events means that I'll actually need to work tonight; sorry about that. I thought 6:30 would be a good time for me, but I guess not.

    I'm not going to make it tonight; got stuck working late. Have fun! I'll be by next time.

    Ryo, no problem. We got plugs there. It wouldn't hurt if someone wants to bring a few surge protectors. Anybody? I am already in Cambridge. Looks like we have about 7 people interested for pizza, do we have any other takers? Hacking does build up the appetite. :O)

    May 21, 2012

  • Merlin C.

    Bring cash to the event. Direct message me all future messages about pizza, thanks!

    May 21, 2012

  • Adam

    I'll kick in $10 for 'za. Not a meat lover.

    May 21, 2012

  • Muthu A.

    Where do I pay for it?

    May 21, 2012

  • Merlin C.

    and your preferences for pizza/beverages. If we get enough people, we can do a few or several pies ie: a couple of meat pies, veggie, and plain. If anyone's company is interested is sponsoring future events, please let us know. Thanks!

    Would people being interested in pizza and beverages for tonight while hacking away on personal projects or learning about Android? If so we are asking for a $10 contribution which would cover 3 slices, beverages, and a tip for the driver. If you don't have a big appetite you can contribute $5 for two slices would be fine. Hopefully we can have enough people interested, and hungry enough to chip in. You will have to bring cash to the event. Direct message me with how much you can contribute,

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
