student lots at this time of day.
Our speaker, Bill Chapman is a Software and Operations Engineer who
specializes in helping businesses make pragmatic decisions about the
technology they use and the software they create. He is currently an
operations engineer at cloud computing solutions provider Stark & Wayne
and a partner at software consultancy Division By Zero.
We've been settling for light refreshments and will do the same.
*doolli* is our current sponsor.
