- Tonight @ 7pm is our #CodeMonkeys Meeting. Tonight’s topic is on Github. Here’s the plan for tonight
- Non-Members are welcome.

- Thanks to Brandon, we picked up 42 Pentium 4 computers, and a very nice SAN and Server rack.
- We’ll be working to go through the 42 Desktops so we can inventory the hardware.
- We’ll definetely need help working on the machines, we’ll let everyone know when we plan on working on them.
- The goal for the PCs is to set a few aside for group use and then possibly sell (cheaply) the rest with proceeds going to the Laser Cutter Fund.
- There is a leak by the back door, we had to pull up the carpet, we’ve got the landlord involved and currently waiting to hear back from him.
- We have some new members and a couple of pending new members. If you haven’t been to a meeting in a while, come see the new faces.
- Claudio has started a thread on the email list for those wanting RaspberryPi cases printed on the 3d printers for donations to the laser cutter fund.
- Rachel is prepping info to do a class on Stained Glass.
- We have bought a storage rack and The Artsy & Crafty among the group have begun plans for storing and sharing various arts and crafts supplies at the space.
- Ben is going to pickup the storage rack today so it should be at the space for anyone who would like to go put it together.

Just heard for Jeremy, the leader of the Memphis PHP User Group. We’ll be hosting their monthly meeting this Thursday. Their meeting topic this month is “Building Magento Extensions with Brian Wentzloff” Id love to see some people from the #CodeMonkeys come check this out. We’ll definitely be doing some PHP in the near future. Magento is a very powerful E Commerce platform that quite a few companies are using, so the presentation should be very informative.
