Update: owing to the threat of Thunderstorms, the beer-garden and meet-up have been postponed until June 27th! Many apologies.

Fellow coders,

Thank you for sticking around, I can only apologise for my lack of input thus far. There are several reasons for this, including some family tragedy, which I won’t chronicle for the sake of your sanity. The good news is that there are over a hundred people receiving this message, and that seems to suggest that we have a lot to talk about.

As someone who has managed to stay out of management for several decades, the last thing I ever imagined doing was organising a meet-up group and, frankly, I’m probably the worst placed person to do so. However, it seems too good an opportunity to miss and so I’m going to throw out a suggestion for an initial meet-up which aims to be a low-stress social event where people may chat and exchange ideas with a view to creating future events.

June 27th - East Falls Beer Garden
Despite being called a “Beer Garden” there will be plenty of food (trucks galore) and non-alcoholic beverages available. Also, the atmosphere is very easy-going and family-friendly. The introverts among us should also not be put off: there are plenty of places and spaces to wander off to and read. I will endeavour to secure a corner for our cause and maybe we can all wear something to identify each other. Ideas welcome.
