    At the March meeting, I thought I heard 1 person said he was working with some non-profit organizations that may need some volunteer help. I am up for this, let me know when I am needed.

    The March meetup was great. A large turn out and two very interesting topics. After the MidWest PHP conference and this meeting, I need to incorporate unit testing in my code.

    I was just checking the schedule and noticed that there wasn't any mention of pizza tonight. I figured I would ask about this now before I inadvertently showed up hungry tonight. ;)
