I'd like to invite all of you on the Nashville Rails meetup group list to join Nashville Software School mentors and students this coming Thursday morning - see below for the reminder we sent out to our mentors this morning. (I know some of you are already on our mentor list - sorry for the duplication.)
Just a reminder - we are having a meetup on Thursday morning between 8am and 9:30am. It's a chance for the mentors
to come in and get a chance to meet all of our second cohort of students plus it's a chance for the students to start making contacts with more of the mentors. Many of the
mentors who will be there are people that students wouldn't otherwise see
until the last 3 months of the program. It's a huge confidence booster for the students to see how many of you are supporting the program.
The location of the
meetup is Railyard Studios, 429 Chestnut Street, Studio C, Nashville, TN
37203. That is the corner of Houston Street and Chestnut. There is a
gravel parking lot on that corner - park in that lot for our meeting.
We're on the "south" side of Chestnut. The building is a large old
brick mill building that was one of the buildings in a sock factory that
used to be one of the largest employers in Nashville. There is a
wooden stairway leading from the gravel lot to a large orange industrial
door on the elevated main floor of the building - we want to go up
those stairs and through that orange door. Be careful - there's a step
down right inside the door. Inside the orange door is a very large
space that serves as a showroom for Railyard Studios - that's where we
will be meeting.
There will be a short program while we're
there but most of the time will be devoted to allowing you to get to
meet students and check out Railyard Studios. We'll try to run a few
tours of the production side of Railyard so that you can see how they
make their very cool furniture. You can also check out their products
We'll have coffee and donuts/pastries/bagels (I haven't decided which yet). I will send out a survey form tonight that will allow you to RSVP so that I can get an approximate headcount and know how many goodies to buy.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I look forward to seeing you on Thursday morning.
