We haven't had a DOT event in a while and with all the social distancing we wanted to get together online for our very first virtual DrinksOnTap. This is an online meetup so feel free to bring a beer, water, wine or whatever makes you happy. Because it's a virtual event we also welcome folks to join from all over the country, so if you haven't been to a DoT lately because you moved, now's your chance to join us again. We'll be using Zoom to host this meeting and we hope you can join us. If you can try to have camera's on, it's appreciated by the demo givers as they love to see audience reactions. As always we looking for amazing demos of mobile software and technology. No pitches or sales presentations!
