What we’re about

An open Meetup in Grand Rapids, MI for anyone and everyone connected to IBM Midrange Systems running IBM i (AS/400, iSeries, System i). You don't have to be an IBM i evangelist, super user, or even running on the latest and greatest technology IBM i has to offer. 

My goal is to bring people within the IBM midrange community here is the Greater Grand Rapids, MI area together, to share ideas, share knowledge, and share stories, over a beer, pop, or an ice cold glass of water. It's as simple as that. 

"Connect great people, within a great community, in an effort to grow together." 

You should refrain from attending this meeting if your sole intention is to sell something. It's not that kind of meeting, and your intentions will surface quickly with this group. 

The plan is to meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 4:00pm to 6:30pm, starting 3/8/2016. It would be great to have everyone show up at 4pm, but I understand that schedules don't always cater to that. I also understand that sitting in a bar/restaurant talking about IBM i for 2.5 hours may not be as exciting for others, as it is for me. So, please feel free to stop in anytime between 4:00pm and 6:30pm. 

The first meeting will tentatively be held at "The 84th Street Pub" in Byron Center, MI (8282 Pfeiffer Farms Dr SW, Byron Center, MI 49315). If we get a good crowd of northerners, we can look for a more central location, that works for everyone. 

To summarize… 

When: 3/8/2016 (re-occurring the 2nd Tuesday of each month) from 4:00pm to 6:30pm. 

Where: The 84th Street Pub" (8282 Pfeiffer Farms Dr SW, Byron Center, MI 49315) This group is not affiliated with IBM or our local IBM i user group.
