Organizational Notes:
We'll use meetup RSVPs to sign you in. If your meetup profile does not have your full name, you'll be asked to write your full name next to your first name or meetup pseudonym when you arrive for security reasons.

Complete profile advantage: meetup group members with names and introduction section properly filled out in their profiles will have priority in attending the meetup in case of limited capacity.

You can send your questions/comments to [masked] before or after the event; they'll be routed to the appropriate individuals (presenters, organizers, or sponsors).

Common important details posted at :
- Overbooking: this is a free-to-attend event and, as such, there is some overbooking. Seating capacity is about 60. Arrive early to get a seat if this is absolutely necessary for you;
