We're going to try an outdoor venue this time so we'll meet at the rooftop bar at the Sundance Theater at Hilldale Mall.
We have over 50! members now but I've only met about 15 of you. Please come and share your experiences as a programmer in the Madison area. We have self-employed, contractors, work-from-home, entrepreneurs, code monkeys, web monkeys, java monkeys, database monkeys, pixel monkeys, you name it. Looking for a job? We have people looking for programmers too.
Things we've discussed are previous meetings:
* web technologies such as Google Wave
* scripting languages such as Ruby and Pythnon
* compiled languages such as Java, C#, and C++
* source control
* working from home
* working in a cube farm
Etc. Ever interesting, never boring, something for everyone.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
