We are a group of programmers that meet quarterly in the north suburban Chicago area. We have an active email listserv that also includes programmers from other areas.
We meet quarterly, usually in January, April, July and October. Our gatherings usually begin at 9:00 am with coffee and networking. The official meeting start is 9:30 am until around 12:00 pm. Oftentimes, the hosting library provides a short tour afterwards for anyone able to stay.
We have a very active Google Group. Contact Pat Tetzlaff (ptetzlaff [at] clpl[dot] org) to find out how to join.
