Hi all,

The venue for the next singapore.rb meeting has been confirmed! We
will be meeting at the Central Lending Library with the NLB graciously
providing the use of a room (with WIFI), capacity is pegged at 40 to
50 people.

The meeting is scheduled for the 19th of April, from 7pm to 8:30pm. I
will be providing more information on the agenda once its confirmed.
For now, I'll let on that there will be 2 speakers from the group
sharing their knowledge on Ruby/Rails.

Please indicate whether you will be attending the meeting by
responding to this thread.

Hi Doug,

That's great! I'm not yet sure if I'll be in Singapore on that date -
but if I am, I shall attend. I'll keep you posted.

Cheers
Mohit.

Hey Jens,

This might be useful for you [http://www.streetdirectory.com/
asia_travel/travel/travel.php?travel_id=32343&travel_site=13144]. The
Centrel Lending Library on basement 1 of the National Library at
Victoria Street.

Hi Doug,

What about directions once we are in the library? I remember at the
last "meeting"--there were only a few of us--we went to look at the
meeting rooms in the library. Although we weren't allowed to enter
them, we located a few, or at least the floors on which they were
located.

I remember one floor with some kind of exhibition space, and another--
or the same one?--with an American university program.

Anyway, it's a large building, so minimal directions, like what floor
to exit the elevator from, would be appreciated.

N.

I'll probably be there early to beat the evening traffic. The last
time I went I was 1 hour late because of the traffic. If I'm there
early I'll be at the library I suppose. Any way of going in the room
first?

Doug, there's going to be a projector as well, right? I'm going to do
some slides and give a short demo, wouldn't work if 10+ people have to
squeeze to look at the small screen.

Hope everyone had fun! It was great meeting up, we should do this more
often. Maybe now with NLB's help we can do it.
