    So glad that I could make the last one, since it was postponed to a Tuesday. Loved my first MeetUp with GeoDC! Alas, I have class Wednesday nights, so I cannot make it - but I hope to make the one in June!

    I just wanted to say hi. I moved this area from Seattle and look for opportunities to talk and learn about geospatial stuff here. I participated in the GeoNoVA meeting yesterday and it was great see people who love geospatial stuff.

    I just moved to the DC area and really excited and kind of shocked to find this kind of meetup here. I look forward to meeting local folks into this stuff!
