We're very excited to have Mattt Thompson (@mattt) presenting this month while he's out on the east coast. If you're not yet acquainted with Mattt, he is a developer and designer working at Heroku in San Francisco. Mattt is the creator of Induction, a polyglot database client, and Postgres.app, the easiest way to run PostgreSQL on the Mac. Mattt also wrote and maintains several open source projects, including AFNetworking, FormatterKit, and TTTAttributedLabel. He previously worked as an iOS developer and Ruby hacker at Gowalla.
Here's a description of the presentation that Mattt has planned:
"It can be said that GitHub Issues are the hacker's equivalent of the classical Greek forum. Like the ancient philosophers before us, here the leading minds in open source gather to discuss the programming topics of our day. In this talk, we'll dig through AFNetworking's backlog to discover and dissect the epic debates, lofty ideas, and occasionally-fierce rhetorical exchanges contained within those hallowed threads."
We'll be hosted at a new location this month, the TechStars office, thanks to Leon S! A couple of the TechStars companies will also give short presentations to kick off the meetup.
