With the holidays approaching, many of us will be spending some time away from the keyboard and with family and friends. And time away from the keyboard is also a great time to collect your thoughts and get a new perspective on parts of your career that may get lost when you are in the middle of a sprint.

In support of planting some seeds of thought and getting that new perspective, this RIRUG meetup is going to be a little different.

We'll be visited by Gregory Brown, who will coordinate a Lean Coffee session with our group. Gregory Brown is an author, mentor and software developer from Connecticut. He blogs at https://practicingdeveloper.com/ and recently released his latest O'Reily book "Programming Beyond Practices: Be More Than Just a Code Monkey" ( http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920047391.do ). Here's Gregory's description of how the evening will go:

A conversation on the non-code aspects of software development, carried out in Lean Coffee format. We'll come up with topics as a group, but some possible themes range from project planning and rapid prototyping to business analysis and designing for maintainability. The main goal is to talk about the kinds of things that are relevant to all practicing software developers, but are a step or two above the purely technical level.

MojoTech will provide food, beverage and two chances to win a copy of Gregory's book for attendees! Put on your winter gloves and come hang out with us.
