alarm 6:00pm

Bring your laptop and let's get your environment set up/give you an intro guide for a given project so you can start working on it with the other team members.

It is one thing to join a project, to create one, or to talk about it but never actually work on it. Let's change that and get something for you to put on your resume.

If you have a project you have started and/or want to start let's get you working and coding tonight!

Pizza will be served! Thank you to those who have paid dues for supporting the prevention of starving members.
