March Meetup at Aubrey’s

We’ve had some trouble with venues this month. Our previous venue (Cellular Sales) is no longer able to host our meetings and the replacement venue cancelled on Tuesday. I was unable to secure a venue given such short notice. So, instead of a regular meeting (I had planned to talk about the ‘I’ in SOLID – the Interface Segregation Principle), we will be having a meetup/drinkup at Aubrey’s on Cedar Bluff at 6 pm. So let’s get together, have fun, and maybe even talk about software. So as to maintain our record of awesomeness, TEKsystems will be buying a round or two for us. (Thanks TEK!!) :)

Click here to RSVP so we know how many tables to reserve at the bar.
