We're meeting at the CIC (http://stl.cic.us/), the Cambridge Innovation Center on Duncan Ave. A tad west of IKEA.
4240 Duncan Ave.
St. Louis, MO
The entrance is on Duncan Ave. on the very corner of the building (by the Park Avenue Coffee signs). Head inside, straight toward the elevators. Take them to the 2nd floor. We'll be meeting in the Honeydripper room. From the elevators, head right, then left down a very long hallway. The exterior doors lock at 7pm so please arrive on time (if you'll be late let me know).
Parking is street level right next to the building (no meters).
Since many folks attend with questions in-hand we want to make it easier for them to get answers. Instead of making people wait till the end of the evening to ask their questions, we're going to dedicate the first 30 minutes of the evening to questions and conversation. Need help with something? Have a cool site to share? The is the time.
6:30pm to 7:00pm - Question & Answer time. Come to help others, ask questions, and socialize before the main event.
7pm to 7:15pm - Introductions and housekeeping.
7:15pm to 8:30pm - Main topic of the evening and presentations.
