    Good stuff fellas. Hey, Scott: you wouldn't consider knocking together a quick blog article about node.js / grunt etc would you? It's been something that I've been trying to get onto my radar, but struggling for a lead-in.

    Secondly: very let down I can't get to CFO... Jen sounds like a great speaker. Oh well.

    Take it easy chaps.

    Hey Adam

    Come to my Grunt / Gulp session at SOTR in June! David Boyer also has a session on Node and Express, so you should be covered with introductions to both (plus beer)
  3. Adam Cameron Says:
    Matt: cool one. Yeah, I'll be there, and both yours and David's prezzos are on my high-priority list. As is the beer.

    Very excited to hear Jen at cfobjective. That is so cool that she helps get people into presenting, I have debating doing it myself for years and finally got the push I needed from several people this year to take the plunge. And funny how we both ended up on the topic of what makes women such great programmers too!

    Hello! I could have sworn I've visited this site before but after browsing through a few of the articles I realized it's new to me.
    Nonetheless, I'm certainly happy I found it and I'll be bookmarking it
    and checking back regularly!
