Over the past two years, many of the Charlotte area tech user groups/meetups have gotten together in December to throw a big bash and this year is no different. In fact, this year is looking like it will be our largest yet! This is a great opportunity to meet other developers/hackers/geeks in the Charlotte area and share a couple of beers.
Registration is done through Eventbrite: http://techcltparty2012.eventbrite.com/
At 7:00 PM, an organizer from each of the participating groups will be put on the spot for 2-3 minutes to talk about what their group has done in the last year as well as mention what they have coming up. There are some really interesting things going on in Charlotte. The hope is that one of the groups will catch your ear and drag you out to one of their events. Below are some of the groups who will be in attendance:
