This is a great group of people, easy to talk with! It was nice to get re-acquainted with some people from the PHP group (Andrew runs that, also). I hope I can attend this meetup more often. So far, it looks like I will be able to do so.
Code monkeys, pixel pushers and web heads unite! Join us each month for an informal get-together to discuss web development trends, tools and techniques. These lunch-hour meetings, hosted at Providence area restaurants, will give you the chance to examine such topics as web design, semantics, standards, accessibility, usability, servers, clients (as in software or as in people), popular trends, and any other topics that our members are interested in.
