Firewall Builder - User Meetup in SF Bay Area

If you are a Firewall Builder user and live in the SF Bay Area we want to meet you! We will be hosting an informal get together at the Tied House in Mountain View on Thursday June 17th at 6:30pm. Vadim and I will be there to answer questions, talk about Firewall Builder and most importantly to get to know our users better. We want to hear about how you use it today, what you would like to see added or improved and generally hear your thoughts.

What's in it for you? Well, to start with there will be free beer and appetizers. This will also be a good chance to network with your peers and meet other Firewall Builder users.

Event details:

Thursday 6/17/2010
Tied House Cafe & Brewery
954 Villa St
Mountain View, CA 94041

The Tied House is close to the Mountain View CalTrain station. There is a meetup page for this event http://www.meetup.com/Firewall-Builder-Users-SF-Bay-Area/. If you could RSVP for this event, either on meetup.com or by emailing me, it will help us make sure we have enough room reserved on the patio. We look forward to seeing you there!

Btw, if you don't live in the Bay Area we will be trying to arrange meetups in other locations as our travels bring us to different areas, so stay tuned.

Mike & Vadim
