unHoliday Meeting: Be a Grinch about Your Tech Gripe, Various
For the past several years, our holiday party has been filled with the
notion of giving back to the community: your tips, your hacks, your
So many people have proved selfless and assisted others that we feel
it's time for a change. Let's be honest, we need a time to vent, and
there's no reason the holiday season should be immune.
What are your gripes in technology? What do you hate dealing with at

pre-pay for the board when a time/date/place is specified.
Let's open a discussion about what type of meeting to have on ARM. A
basic walk-through with Tim Kientzle's github repository from
A grab-bag of implementation possibilities by a few different people?
The more people we have in NYC*BUG hacking on ARM, the better meeting(s)
we can have.
