BASE Holiday Party

BASE is holding its second annual holiday party at the elegant University Club atop Nob Hill.

Free drinks and food will be provided along with other gifts and prizes from our corporate sponsors.

There is a dress code because it is a private club with rules. Females can pretty much wear anything, but males are required to wear closed toed shoes that are not sneakers and shirts with collars. Jeans are OK, but please no holes in them.

Bring your date, dress appropriately, and impress them with the awesome venue and view of San Francisco.

    Software engineers and dress code? What?

      I was replying directly to you, Dirk. Michael has posted about dress codes for this event and others like it numerous times. We've heard the joke about software engineers and formal wear a zillion times. Michael usually event mentions the disconnect when making the announcement.

      You're not clever by repeating the joke again. And if you're genuinely surprised, see henry's comment.

      Expressing genuine surprise. I get around a thousand emails per day. Lots of triage required.Usually people who like to play dress up have no time for programming and the other way around. Enjoy the party. I'll be socks optional somewhere else. Now the real question is, how do we stop the betas from yelling at people? Nobody is attacking your leader. Relax.
