Talk.CSS #15

Event location: Hackerspace

This month’s turn-out was much better than last month, because planning! But the best laid plans don’t turn out as expected either, as we ended up having to shift location to Hackerspace a couple days before the meetup. But it all worked out well, and the talks were great as well!

So this happened…
