Looking forward to seeing all of you tomorrow morning!

Today would be a great day to work on getting your toolkits ready!

  • Is your local development environment (on your laptop) up and running?
  • Do you have your development frameworks ready?
  • If you want to publish or provision to "the cloud" (a.k.a. AWS/Azure/Google) do you have those systems setup or ready?

Finally, have you joined our Slack team?

Doors open at 0800 at TechShop.

We're looking forward to spending some quality time together!
