Hello again gnocoders,
I've got some meetup updates and other news for you.
First up, our we're meeting again next Thursday, September 13. Your fearless co-organizer, Cory Fabre, is going to enlighten us about Backbone.js. Sounds fun.
Our presenters from last month, 4.0 Schools, invited us to the SparkTruck's New Orleans stop tomorrow from 5:30 - 7:00 PM in front of Capedeville. It's a "maker studio/design lab on wheels...that shows you what school could look like if we got more creative." This also sounds like fun.
Finally, GE Capital is hosting a networking event in a few weeks. The invite is below. Please note that they are requesting RSVPs.
"On behalf of the staffing team at the GE Capital Technology Center in New Orleans, we would like to personally invite you to a networking event at the Loews Hotel on Thursday, September 20th from 6:00-8:00pm.
