Western Mass. Developers Meet at Snowtide

I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who came to last night’s Western Mass. Developers’ meeting.  Further, many thanks to those who helped out in one way or the other  — especially Miles and Doug for running for the D’Angelos, Doug for bringing the ice and cooler, Joe and Lou and Greg and Brian and everyone else who helped to set up or tear down.  I think everyone pitched in, which made it all work out pretty smoothly, I think.

FYI, we collected $170 last night.  That covered all of our food expenses and then some — I think once I tally up everything, we’ll have a surplus of ~$40 (and we have a bunch of generic supplies that we can put to use in the future).  Thank you very much to everyone who pitched in in this way, too.  Hopefully we can keep that pot flowing.

Some highlights from the meeting, and random thoughts of mine, in no particular order:

It seemed like everyone had a good time and that most were pretty happy with the results compared to the usual Panera experience, but I’m clearly biased.  One way or the other, shout out what you liked and didn’t like (either on the mailing list or in the comments below).

FWIW, I’m happy to have Snowtide continue hosting the group’s meetings if people enjoyed the result.  If there’s a next time, get the shared conference room, and see how that works out.

Again, thanks to everyone who came!
