Meet and Greet - A chance to meet the group and share ideas.

Hello, My name is Nathan Bunney and I am the newest organizer for this group.  We had a great run with some amazing meetups about a year ago, but things kind of died out.  Looking at this group now there are a ton of new members, so I think that a meeting where we can all meet each other, find out where the group stands as far as experience,  and plan future meetups would be a good idea.  After we finish this discussion Matthew Davies of GeoStrategies will be giving a talk on Angular.js.

    Should we just make a forum? Or maybe our own social network.

      We should just create our own social network? We could do it in a weekend right? :)

    I tried to take notes about all the different tools and technologies so we could have some "show notes" for after the meetup. I hope I caught all the different references & they are generally in the order that we talked about them. Next time I'll try to take more detailed notes :) I also omitted the main technologies that we talked about such as NodeJS, HTML, CSS, PHP, etc...

      Thanks Matthew, this is a great list of things we generally discussed. All of them are in the scripting language zone so open topics for giving a talk on.

    Maybe in the future we can discuss putting these notes up somewhere else other than here in the comments.

    A lot of fun! Loved the conversation & the people

    We had a great first meetup for the reborn MSLM group. Matthew's talk on Angular (angularjs.org) was appropriately entry level and the talk ranged from there to Vagrant (vagrantup.com), Node JS (nodejs.org) and many other current technologies. A good time was had by all, we learned, we laughed and we got to know each other. Mission accomplished.

      I have notes from the talk & info about the things we talked about. I'll post them later tonight/tomorrow
