    I had a great time. Love the concept and I am sometimes shy in new surroundings with new people and at least at the table I was sitting at I met some interesting people. I didn't roam around and was kinda shy in expressing my views but George you made me feel like a welcome guest whom would be welcome anytime. Hopefully in the future I will shed the fear of talking in a large group and honestly after you know me I can't shut up sometimes lol. Joseph if I was not fearful myself I would have totally said hi to you.

    I am giving this meetup 3-stars. George was an excellent host; however, the people at the meetup seemed unfriendly. One of the members I was talking to got up and said "I'll be right back" never came back. I mean how hard is it to be friendly towards others??? everyone had their little clicks and if you wasn't very outgoing then you simply wouldn't fit in. I'm sorry that I have to say this but I am speaking my mind and it really would be great if people in general wouldn't act like that. If I attend these meetups I will surely bring a friend next time because I will not be left on a island again. I try to attend meetups alone so that way I can always meet new people but not with this group. I am sorry George it's not your fault. It's really a shame that you have unpleasant people in the world and they wonder why the world isn't do so great. You want to see a change in this world you need to make it start with yourself. It starts with being friendly towards others!!!

      also joseph, please keep in mind this was a special event/celebration. our regular meetings average between 35-45 people and meet in a smaller space. in that setting, there is more of an opportunity for personal connections.

      Hi Joseph! I am very sorry that you felt that way on Saturday! it happened to me in the past (not at javaflix) and I know it isn't pleasant! However, as George said, it was not the usual meetup, so do consider to give it another try! I have been to javaflix for quite a long time, and I have met very friendly people. And I am quite shy and not outgoing at all!
