Greetings everyone!

It’s that time again. We’ll be meeting on Thursday, May 14th at Freegeek, where monger VM Brasseur will be presenting her YAPC::NA 2015 talk on project failure:

> Projects fail in droves. Up to 90% of new businesses fail within 10 years. Screws fall out all the time; the world is an imperfect place.
> Just because it happens doesn’t mean we can’t do our best to prevent it or—at the very least—to minimize the damage when it does. As a matter of fact, embracing failure can be one of the best things you do for your project. Failure is a vital part of evolution. By learning to love failure we learn how to take the next step forward. Ignoring or punishing failure leads to stagnation and wasted potential.

We’ll also be giving away a ticket to Open Source Bridge[1], taking place at the end of June. If you can’t make it to the meeting and would like your name to be in the drawing, make sure to get in touch before Thursday.

For more information:

As always, join us at the Lucky Lab for beer, food, and a fair share of yammering following the meeting.

Until then,
