Dave Thomas is a well-known software development expert, particularly in the Ruby community. He helped write the Agile Manifesto.

Event Parking

2 blocks away from Taylor Hall, there are 2 parking garages:

There are usually spots open around San Jacinto and 24th. Parking shouldn’t be a huge problem since it is summer. There is some parking around the building but you want to make sure you read the signs so you don’t get a parking ticket.


We’d like to send out a very special thanks to Tina Wang, Joshua Shanks, Justin Perkins (for the initial contact), and the UT ACM for hosting our meeting in the auditorium.

UPDATE: I’ve added this event to if you’d like to rsvp over there now.
