  • InfraCoders @ Five Barrel Brewing

    Five Barrel Brewing

    Join us for a social get together for the July MeetUp! A good chance to talk about work related pains, interrogate people on how (or why) they do things and just generally get to know people in the tech scene better. Sadly one of our ilk is moving to Sydney - Anthony "Moocar" Marcar. The July meetup instead won't feature any planned technical talks but will serve as a little get together to "farewell" Moocar (I'm sure he'll be back) and give thanks for his contributions to the group. Drinks and food will be available for purchase - no sponsors this time round! This is planned to be a fairly relaxed evening - please do RSVP if you can so I can keep Phil @ 5barrel advised of the group size.
