We had such a big RSVP response for our upcoming meetup on HTML5 that we need to move it to a larger venue.
We have changed the meeting location to Microsoft N.E.R.D. Center.
The date and time remains the same. Many thanks to Bocoup for offering to be the original host. We are looking forward to seeing Bocoup again in October. Also, thank you to Microsoft for offering this larger space so that we can accommodate all who want to attend.
We have lifted the RSVP limit so if you were previously on the waiting list, you can now RSVP "yes".
Please see meetup details below.
