Just a reminder that our regularly scheduled meetup times are: * the second Wednesday of each month * the last Tuesday of each month Meetups officially start at 6 pm (but you no longer need to feed the meter after 7 pm). They are always informal roundtable-style discussions and yummy food is always served.

Hello to you all, My wife and I have started a small daycare facility in the Bayside, Queens’s area. We are seeking the assistance in starting up a website for the purpose of advertising, hosting emails and possibly receiving payments. Any thoughts and or suggestion are more than welcomed!! Thank you in advance for your time. FYI - I understand this is a fairly small project, but with the right person; I would have the need (in the very near future) for IT support on another project I am working on. Louis F.

Happy TGIF everyone! (Oh wait, it's Tuesday, nevermind). Every Friday, I'll be bringing in a handful of beers for DaniPad members to enjoy. Additionally, to answer David's recent question to me, members *can* feel free to bring in their own beer anytime. No hard liquor please though.

As you guys know, I'm working super hard on redoing the lower level of the building we're currently in. A handful of you have already seen the space, but here are some photos for those of you who haven't yet. As you can see, LOTS of work to do!

SoftLayer has been generous enough to sponsor our chicken parmesan tray for last night's meetup, and I thought it would be a cool idea to have everyone (or as many people as I could convince) record a little video snip thanking SoftLayer. So far, SoftLayer has agreed to sponsor our little meetup group because I've been such a long time customer of theirs. However, because they're unable to attend, I wanted to show them that they're not just giving away money to one of their top clients, but that we're actually doing something great and productive here. I’m going to …

Can I get a show of hands as to who would like Chicken parmesan (yet again) for our Tuesday, August 26th meetup? Think I should change it up a bit?? (Those of you who are kosher, please be sure to give me a heads up if you will be coming and I'll try to accommodate. Multiple kosher RSVPs will get an actual kosher meal delivered. One kosher RSVP -- I'm looking at you, Eliran -- will get a trip down the block to Martha's Bakery.) In brighter news, SoftLayer has been extraordinarily generous enough to agree to sponsor our food …

I received the following message on Meetup.com from someone named Nathaniel Granor: Hi Dani- I'm the regional director for TEALS, a non-profit program that is helping NYC schools start teaching computer science. We have a school in Flushing that is in need of 1-2 additional TAs to help with an AP Computer Science class (Java programming). I'm wondering if any members of your meetup group might be interested in participating. You can contact me directly at Nathaniel@tealsk12.org (website: tealsk12.org).

Guess what?! We've partnered with SoftLayer, an IBM Company, to offer current DaniPad members access to their Catalyst program. There are only two requirements: * You're not already a SoftLayer customer * You're an early stage tech company Firstly, you can receive up to $1000 of free web hosting credits for a year. Not only that, but SoftLayer will introduce you to their Innovation Team where they can help you design and scale your tech infrastructure to support big data and more. Thirdly, they'll leverage their marketing resources to help you increase your startup's visibility. To get started, it's as …

We have Chris Brown coming into the office today at 3 pm. This might be of special importance to those non-native New Yorkers lurking around DaniPad ;) Chris works on helping foreign startups gain traction with NYC investors. His two companies are http://traction-tribe.com/ and http://startupwiseguys.com/ I'm looking forward to hearing more about how he can help the DaniPad community!

Guess what?! I was interviewed today by NY1 and DaniPad had about a 5 minute segment on TV tonight focusing around our expansion to the lower level. Sooooo excited to be actually moving forward with that. I'm hoping to start working with an architect within the next couple of weeks.
