    Metered parking downtown is free after 6pm and there are several parking garages close to xTuple headquarters. There is also a Tide stop a couple blocks away if you want to avoid the traffic :)

      What if we get there a little before 6? Still free?

      street parking is 45 cents for 15 minutes. Usually you can get away with it, but if you want to risk it thats a judgement call you're gonna have to make.

      Theres also a parking garage down the street

    I hope it is okay for me to bring a couple of guys with me. They were supposed to RSVP on their own, but forgot.

  • Erik O.

    should we bring our laptops (will it be interactive/challenge style)?

      It's a good idea. I've posted the code I'll be using in github (see Meetup description) and I've made that code easy to hack on and extend.

      May 19, 2014

    • Travis W.

      If you want to just watch and listen, that's cool too. You won't be left out of anything.

    I am trying to create a route building application using Google maps. Anyone know of some good tutorials that topic?
