Sad to hear about you situation ... lending my support for a effective recovery!
Well I've made several posts and haven't heard back till you and Joel.

I'm on crutches for a few weeks (torn achilles), so won't be mobile until next month. But, one of you guys should set a time/date and keep it going.

Heyas HI Kai Techies

Yeah I'm definitely interested in meeting up again - great bunch of geeks! I'm kinda locked into this VMware training all this week, but late next week or the week after should be green for me.

HI Kai Techies!! ... Howzit?!?!

Just wondering ... is there any interest in meeting or anything?!

Last nite's WetWare Wednesday meeting was mostly promoting this weekend's intense 54 hour "Startup Weekend" activities all being held at BoxJelly.

About 50+ people attended. Some of the previous meetings were over 100. Then the content was impressive! This time it was mostly a meet & greet/Networking opportunity.

The sponsor Team-Praxis brought some awesome food!! and told about their business here in Hawaii ... nearly 20 years!! That alone is impressive. Oh! they are looking for developers, .net experience, and have some other positions.

Doesn't look like there is much activity going on here in Hawaii Kai or am I just missing the notices?!?

The Aloha Ruby Conference is coming up 10/8 & 9 ... should be good!

Take care ...

Welcome Peter & Matthew!

Great to have such capable & powerful additions to our group!! 

Say ... Joel et al ... I haven't heard if you think that going to a bigger location (ML) is something that you would like to do ... or what day you have selected!

Just asking ... the meeting space here at the Mauna Luan has to be reserved!

BTW ... WWW is coming up on the 26th ... in case anyone is interested. This time it'll be at the BoxJelly location.

WetWare Wednesday, sponsored by TeamPraxis & High Technology Development Corporation (HTDC) has partnered with the Social Wahines to bring you another Startup Weekend Honolulu Software Developer's Launch Party at thenewly renovated Box Jelly. Come hang out with fellow developers* and entrepreneurs, start scouting out potential partners, dry run your pitch, or just learn more about Startup Weekend.  

Register by using eventbrite!

Looking forward to seeing you again!

Regards ... Rico

Add me on the list. Much nicer to connect w/ others without the drive into town!

I'd like to join the Hawaii Kai group.  I know several developers who live out here.  I've just started two mainland gigs this week, so life is good.  Let me know when the next meeting is happening.

Aloha Group!!

Thanks for the meetup ... was nice meeting all of those that were there!

For those that are interested in going to the "Aloha Ruby Conf" ... here is the link for the local discount Registration ( if there are any left @ $149-)

Looking forward to our next meeting.

Oh! if everybody is happy with the Island Brew Coffehouse and they (IBC) don't mind us taking up a third of their space with only ordering a coffee per person ... fine! Otherwise I could reserve one of the large meeting areas at the Moana Luan (521 Hahaione St) West Conference area, which could hold a much larger group ... easily 20 people at the same table setup.

OR if you want to 'see' water we could also meet out by one of the pool picnic/BBQ areas. I just need to know at least a week in advance so I won't have to fight for your preferred space !;-))

Just a thought! ... Mahalo ... Rico
