Get involved!

We gather on the first Thursday of every month, typically in Walter 402 from 9:30-11:00. If you can't make it but want to tune-in, we broadcast meetings in real-time with UMConnect.

We are constantly looking for speakers and topic ideas for technical talks. Please email code-people-committee@umn.edu with your ideas.
