Do you want to meet up and talk about libraries, library software, and coding?

I’m organizing a small, informal Ottawa-area code4lib North meetup at the end of March.

When: Wednesday March 28, 5-7 PM

Where: Royal Oak downtown at 188 Bank at Gloucester (on the corner across from L’Esplanade Laurier).

The details are also up on the code4lib wiki.

Beginners are very welcome to join!

Let me know if you are interested by e-mailing me at warren.layton@gmail.com so that I can reserve enough seats for us at the Oak.
