Thanks for the Diet Coke. What you folks do is miles away from what I do. If anyone knows of a group that does more Linux desktop stuff and / or plays with SNMP or MIBs, I'd die to know. I'll also ponder who can replace tech start. Keizer Rotary is doing their big drawing this weekend and they take in nearly $50k. Maybe some of that could be used for this tech thing? I will ask the right people.

Talks on Linux desktop stuff or SNMP would totally be in scope for this group -- many of us have more of a web focus because that's what we do for work, but we're really pretty wide open on topic stuff. If you think this isn't the group you want, there's flex to bend it in that direction.
Also, sorry I showed up late and didn't get a chance to really meet you. I hope at least you'll keep an eye on the Meetup and drop back in when we have topics that look like they would interest you.
I absolutely will...

Our topics vary quite a bit, anything from hardware, devops, to web dev. Maybe you could present sometime something you've done, we'd love to hear it.
Thanks Russ, great talk! I loved seeing the js testing framework and how to use it with angular. Also really peaked my interest in Nancy. I have a question, since WebAPI 2 has attribute routing, if you HAD to use IIS, would you use Nancy or WebApi2?

I'd go for Nancy. But WebAPI is pretty cool too.

Meaning, Nancy works just as well as on IIS as other environments. But you might want to also consider team buy-in.
It's manager buy-in I'm concerned about...
Thanks everyone for the meet up. I wasn't vocal about anything at all, but it was interesting to see the discussion on frameworks, and about the game project. I do make a lot of single page apps, but have not been using a framework, and maybe I should(?). I just pass json objects back and forth with PHP, and have never had any issues with it. Now I'm curious. (of course I'm also not passing any large chunks of data...). I'm also interested in learning Xcode. Is anyone else?

I started learning Xcode last year. Didn't go too far (as usual) but I'm interested.
I just need to dedicate some time to it, although I've moved to an Android phone now so it's not as high on my list as it used to be.
Alan, I suggested that Beaver Bar Camp (http://beaverbarcamp.org/) this Saturday might be a good place to look for sponsors. The OSU open source lab (https://osuosl.org/) might be able to act as a 501 c(3).
Link to volunteer RSVP for OGPC 7.0:
Also be sure to send me links and ideas for sponsors / supporters.
@Ronda, I'm sure it's the talks. Gotta be the talks. 8^)
(FWIW, I may be a little late to the meeting; please go ahead and start if it seems like enough people are present. Ronda, if you could lead the circus I would appreciate it...)
They're all coming to hear me talk. ... Wait .. there's pizza?
Wow, highest number of RSVP's since, I believe, the very first event!
Could it be...dare I say it...the allure of beer and pizza?

Can't wait to meet and mix with y'all. Earlier in the day I will have ridden my first few miles on a dirt bike in 2014
