Our speaker on Thursday, Apr 17, at noon (US EDT), will be Steve Bryant, who will present on "Introducing sebForm". This is kind of a one year anniversary event, as Steve was our 2nd speaker after the re-establishing of the meetup in April of 2007 (technically the 12th, with a talk by Jake Munson).

Description: (provided by the speaker)

The login screen presented there has no connection to And if you have a real Connect account, don't use that either. Just sign in as a guest. It's just not worth the time to try to track who RSVPs and add them manually as participants in each meeting. You have no fewer features as a guest as when you would login with your own account. Thanks.

RSVP: As always, we do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it's not mandatory and it's not a commitment. BTW, no need to RSVP if you can't make it nor even explain why you can't. With 1,300+ members, there's really no reason to explain your absence. :-) We'll also appreciate your sharing your feedback after the meeting (also offered via a follow-up email or via a link on the site).
