oof I don’t like that @Erik Osterman

I definitely don’t want our members pay to rsvp. at the same time I’d say our attendance rate is about 40~50% of the total rsvps

Technically they could show up without RSVPing.

please let me know if you guys are available to do any talks (promote yourselves, your company etc we don’t mind)

Erik Osterman

thanks @btai! yes, I wanted to go but in the end wasn’t brave enough to drive from pasadena

Erik Osterman

I’m temporarily moving for a couple months, so will be closer to the westside

unfortunately greater los angeles is just too large for just one devops meetup

yea it is….

i wouldnt brave a drive to pasadena

Erik Osterman

Heck, just crossing the “Great Wall” of thee 405 at rush hour is an 1 hour endeavor

ive driven from Santa Monica to culver for the k8s meetup and thats taken an hour before
