Few important notes for this Meetup:
1. Unfortunately, space for this will be limited so that we won't be able to fit everyone in. Due to that, we will be giving priority to engineers. Chances are, if you are a recruiter, investor, lawyer, you will be bumped. Please don't take it personally, but as this is a tech talk, want to make sure techies get first dibs.
2. Building security here is bit of a pain. Please make sure you have your full name attached to your RSVP. If we do not have your full name, you will be unlikely to get past building security. This is out of our control.
3. If you are not confirmed in the final RSVP list, you can't just show up. If your name is not on the list, building security won't let you in.
