Hey Ignite, it's time to once again spark your fire.
We had a major "a-ha" moment the other day and realized it's been far too long since we saw your smiling face at a meetup. Partly because we couldn't sober up from our Tuesday morning coffee buzz long enough to confirm a date but... MOSTLY because we wanted to deliver something super-special, totally awesome, and sincerely entertaining.
Have I piqued your interest? Keep reading.
When? ~ Thursday, April 4th
Time? ~ Drinks and networking start at 6pm
Where? ~ The Smokehouse, of course. Where else would we be?
Why? ~ Because innovative ideas don't live in a bubble!
Developing Awesome Mobile Apps (or any business for that matter) with a Distributed Team:
With all the talk around Yahoo! ending work-at-home options we thought it would be great to hear from a company who is succeeding with a distributed team.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that our group's collective excitement for this quarterly event will absolutely guarantee a SOLD OUT crowd at this one.
So what are you going to do? You're going to get your name on the list and RSVP now, before it fills up and you miss out. THEN... make sure to put April 4th on your calendar and be there.
(be warned, we've been known to rack up huge bar tabs and charge them to members who RSVP and don't show up... ha!)
So how about it, wanna Meetup? April 4th at the Smokehouse. Let's unite... ummm, I mean... IGNITE!
