    @Lilyheart
    Did I send you this one? It's run by the same recruiter my roommate works for.
    I can't type without my glasses but I can't read my tablet with them. xD
    Well @SimplyPhy we might be getting a new space with better internet soon. yay for that! It's 3 miles down the road from the library, not jinxing it with too many details yet tho. David and I are checking out the space next week.

    Lily Romano

    @Lilyheart hopefully you'll get it then I might be able to come to it. Maybe I could sit down with @SimplyPhy and @davidjcastner and finally get on with javascript

    The place we are looking on Monday at is on the same day/time as the current meeting and like 3 miles from the old location. What gets you to that meeting?

    Monday is more possible than Wednesday and really depends on my contracting hours with the other library but blue bell ambler and spring house is waaay closer to where I live.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    ooooh. I get it now. We are just looking at the space this coming Monday. Meetings will still be on Wednesday for now as I have to work around my school schedule. Come January it might change.
    treeeeeeeeeee fitty.

    @lantech19446

    one of the restaurants I like got a new website today, it's really beautiful. I'm sure it's a template but I'd love to be able to make this site.

    @SimplyPhy
    Yeah that is a nice site. Initial render time could be optimized :P

    You could make that…just would need to find the time :sigh:
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    it would take me a ton of time, my design skills aren't there yet
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    a fun challenge is just trying to recreate a website that already exists. Even if you end of copying and pasting code bits as that's fine as long as you understand what the bits do.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    I probably should start doing things like that just to get better
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    It's a fun challenge and a great way to find a breakthrough when you hit a plateau.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    I feel like I've been plateaud for months
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    That's alright! Have you done much with javascript yet, I know you mentioned recently that you wanted to do more with it
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    I've done very little with it, I got so stuck on the FCC lessons and I've tried a few classes but none of them seem to translate into A. enough of an understanding to write my own even very basic code and B. enough to go back to FCC and be able to get further in the lessons.

    @davidjcastner
    do you know any other programming languages like: java, python, c++?
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    nope

    @lantech19446 try khanacademy, it’s a great intro that forces a hands-on approach
    https://www.khanacademy.org/computing/computer-programming/html-css
    This second one is only if you don’t feel comfortable at all with html/css
    in fact i think i’ll do the SQL course tomorrow maybe
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    I feel comfortable with the html / css but could definitely stand to improve. I may run through SQL myself there's a job i have a pretty good chance of getting right now that is looking for knowledge of sql because they don't have an actual DBA at the moment

    just want to make sure any of us using linux have seen this, it's pretty important

    @lantech19446
    np, you may have already patched I know openSUSE had a patch out by noon today
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    I update my systems at least once a week so I probably already have the patch, but thanks for the heads up!

    @davidjcastner
    moved into a new apartment yesterday, no internet until tuesday, so I will be living at the nearest starbucks until then
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    There could be worse things I guess xD
    Grats on the move. That's always interesting.

    @Lilyheart
    We have a new meeting space! Hammering out the details on when the switch might be, but it's possible the Nov 9th meetup will be the first in the new space. 2016 Meetups will continue on Wednesday and 2017 will be evaluated soon(ish). If you can free your calendar on 11/9, it might be worth it. (hint hint @dcpking @dcpking_twitter )
