This month is our annual 15 Minutes of Fame night. Each speaker will present a short topic for 15 minutes.
Our sponsor this evening is Workshop Mercantile, a provider or enterprise level training courses. This is a new startup from the folks that created the popular Hub locations for corporate meetings in Philly and the suburbs. We are meeting at their Conshohocken training facility. Parking is free in the garage beneath the building.
Note that food will not be served at this meeting. Please eat before you arrive or plan to join some of our crew at the Baggataway Tavern (https://baggatawaytavern.com/) at 8:15 pm (3 minute drive):

It alleviates the developer from having to deal with explicit locking and thread management, making it easier to write correct concurrent and parallel systems.
