ubuntouristkind of stuff we are.20:11
ubuntouristTheir github indicates mostly Javascript an CSS but they mention one of them is a Rails developer.20:12
ubuntouristThree person co-op. Anyway, we should make friends there.20:12

lelkneralfaroit was really great to network and meet other co-ops from the area20:15
lelkneralfarotwo that stood out to me were throneless20:15
ubuntouristACTION posted the chat from the zoom call as e-mail this morning, FWIW20:16
lelkneralfaroit's good to get our name out there and maybe some people will come to us for business or spread our name and we'll get a chance to work on some cool projects 20:16
nrcernaThe meeting it was really good, as I said I met with Harum they where really open to connect and maybe teach in case we need it., it was really good to see Heylin there as well20:16
ubuntouristlelkneralfaro, In my notes from the call, I also took special note of Earthbound.20:17
nrcernaGeoff and Bianca we're really good.20:17
ubuntouristnrcerna, I sent e-mail to their team this morning.20:17

nrcernagreat ubuntourist!20:18
lelkneralfaroubuntourist, yes they seemed to have gained some good experience and have had success20:18
ubuntouristlelkneralfaro, Earthbound, you mean. FYI everyone else, they are now talking about how to handle finances related to their heavy-duty construction equipment.20:19
lelkneralfaroubuntourist, yup i mean Earthbound20:20
ubuntouristEarthbound has done work in the DMV area, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Puerto Rico, among other places...20:20
jelknerbut only on earth, hence the name ;-)20:20
jelkneranything else?20:21
ubuntouristThey're a construction company. So, unlike us, they have to actually be in all those places to do the work. That suggests some good management of their co-op.20:21
