       Free Food!  Free Movies!  Free Software!

We'll be showing the PeepCode screencast on Capistrano 2.1:

  Capistrano 2 is a tool for automating the deployment of
  your application to a server.  You can also automate
  many other monotonous server-maintenance tasks.  It is
  written in Ruby, but can be used to deploy any kind of
  web application.

And, if that isn't enough, you'll have a chance to try out
WAVEscape, a gesture-based, 3D interaction technology that
Reactrix introduced last week at CES 2008:

After an hour of pizza, palaver, and panda punching (see the
YouTube video linked above), we'll settle down for the video,
allowing occasional pauses for questions, etc.  Reactrix uses
Capistrano, so we can answer _some_ questions.  We're also
hoping that some helpful wizards may show up...

PeepCode & Pizza gatherings are sponsored by PeepCode and
Reactrix Systems.  The meeting will be held at the Reactrix
offices in Redwood City from 6-9 pm on Thursday, January 24.
