Hey, I'd love to come, but I'm afraid I have other stuff going on.  Hopefully I can make the next one.

@khodor: it's fine if you come late.
@arithma: we'll be recording directly from the soundboard and use a decent camera. The plan is to release the material online under Creative Commons.

Hi, nice event! But it is from 7h30 to what? And, if I am a true newbie (not a coder or programmer) but really interested in it, would I benefit from coming? Btw I m 16. Thank you.

Anything other than the weekend wouldn't work for me. It's a shame I'll have to miss that, I was really looking forward to it. But I'll definitely make sure I watch it once it gets online.

And by the way, maybe next time I could give a talk about building scalable web applications through messaging and queuing technologies.

AltCity doesn't have its own parking. You'll have to park the car in one of the paid parkings near Hamra main street.

Re: LebGeeks Programming Talks vol. 1

Hey samer, five of my colleagues have expressed their interest in attending the talks, can we consider this an RSVP-by-proxy?
