The "big data" meetup was great. The general consensus seemed to be that Angular was a bit hit; so let's talk AngularJS and how it can help Data command the UI.
We'll have a better seating and presentation environment setup this time.
Also: there is a crossover meetup planned with the Syracuse group. This meetup could be rescheduled to accomodate if there is interest.
The G+ corresponding event is here.
