    Great, I prefer many topics presented in short bursts to the traditional 2-3 longer presentations.

    What do we need to project, do you guys have adapters for Macs?

    August 20, 2014

    • Dustin C.

      I can bring a HDMI-mac adapter. It would be easiest if you had your slides published online somewhere so we don't have to move computers around.

    • Erik D.

      Ok, mine will be on­

      August 20, 2014

  • Chris A.

    Due to a prior commitment, I won't be able to make the 7PM start time. If I arrive around 8PM, will it still be possible to get in, and catch the last few talks? If not, I'll change my RSVP. Thanks!

    August 20, 2014

  • James M.

    We have HDMI, VGA, and Mac VGA adapters!

    August 20, 2014

  • James M.

    Wow, almost 90 RSVPs! That's going to be a lot of pizza...

    Hey all - unfortunately I've had something come up and I'm not going to be able to attend and do my talk. Sorry about the short notice!

    August 15, 2014

  • James M.

    Excited to be hosting! Reminder: we'll be heading to Papagayo's afterwards; it's right next door, and on the way to South Station.

    I'm going to be in town for the DevOpsDays event that week and decided to stay an extra day to check out this meetup. I can do a Lightning talk if you still need to fill slots. One that I'm working on right now for presenting at the Chicago DevOpsDays is titled : "DevHops: Continuous deployment of beer down my neck". It's not technical at all. More of a fun talk. I have others that are more serious if that would be better though.

    1 · July 31, 2014

    • Dustin C.

      Hey Jason, glad to have you! I'm all for a fun talk, just confirm a talk title and I'll add to to the event

      August 1, 2014

    • Jason H.

      Great. Let's go with "DevHops: Continuous deployment of beer down my neck" as the title .. unless you feel that's too long, then just DevHops: Continuous deployment of beer ;)

    Would love to do a lightning talk if you are looking for content. I'm assuming they are around 5min long?

    July 28, 2014

    • Pete C.

      It's called "17th Century Shipbuilding and Your Failed Software Project"

      July 29, 2014

    • Dustin C.

      Thanks! Added to the event.

  • Erik D.

    Do you guys need speakers for the lightning talks?

    July 28, 2014

    • Erik D.

      I could do "Application Level Metrics". How long are the talks?

      July 28, 2014

    • Dustin C.

      Sounds good, around 5min - no more than 7. I'll add your talk to the event, thanks!
