Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.

I also hope to see many of you next Thursday at the upcoming JUG meeting with Ed Burns and Vernon Singleton. Please RSVP in the Events section or at our Meetup group.

If you'd like to have a particular topic or you'd like to sponsor meeting by buying pizza etc. please just shoot me an email.

See you soon!
