digitalmars.D.announce - DLang Silicon Valley First Meetup

Hi folks,

Yesterday's first DLang/Silicon Valley Meetup was really nice. We've had 
three talks (even I talked in spite of having a really hoarse voice 
following a cold) and we've made a number of important plans and 
decisions going forward.

Vic Cekvenich, the initiator of the meetup, was ousted following 
political infighting and replaced by Ali Çehreli. I'm kidding - but only 
partially! Vic is the busy CEO of http://apakau.com (btw: they're 
hiring) and he wanted someone else to take the operations of the meetup. 
Ali graciously accepted the role. Vic will continue providing venue for 
the meetups, which is no small feat - the room we were in today would 
ordinarily rent for $2000. Vic used his karma with http://sv.tie.org to 
get the room for free. (Aside from the fact it could have doubled for a 
fridge, the venue was really nice.) Many thanks to Vic and TiE!

BTW Vic is a great guy to talk to. He has that uncanny ability of 
entrepreneurs to move things forward with each sentence he utters. A 
good contrast with the Infinite Bickering(tm) that seems to be sometimes 
going on in our forums. Vic provided a few very interesting high-level 
ideas for D that we plan to bring up for review soon.

Anyhow, the long and short of it is we've started with the right foot 
with DLang/Silicon Valley. We're waiting for the president to state the 
frequency and usual meeting days and times, etc.

If you're in the area, join us! Stay tuned for more announcements.
