       Free Food!  Free Movies!  Free Software!

Come watch the newly released PeepCode screencast on Git,
Linus Torvalds' distributed source-code management system.

The plan is to munch on pizza, then watch a PeepCode video,
with occasional pauses for questions, etc.  Reactrix uses
Git extensively, so we can answer _some_ questions.  We're
also hoping that some helpful wizards may show up...

This inaugural PeepCode & Pizza gathering is made possible
by the generosity of PeepCode and Reactrix Systems.  The
meeting will be held at the Reactrix offices in Redwood City
from 6-9 pm on Tuesday, December 4.

reliable, and (most of all) distributed SCM systems rock:
