Meeting Day: last Thursday of the month


Welcome to the 2018/2019 season for the Calgary Software Quality Discussion group. This year our location will remain at 205 Fifth Ave SW, 3rd floor, Mezzanine Level, big thanks again to Drillinginfo for providing the space.

Should our meeting day change for this season?

Should we meet on Wednesdays or Thursdays. I've put up a quick poll for topics, meeting day, and webinar options, please, even if you can't attend physically, please reply.

If you would like to speak, know someone who would like to speak, or if there is someone you would like to hear speak, let us know. You can also chat with the group at any time on our slack channel or our Linkedin group. (You can register for the slack channel here.)

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Thank you,
Clancey and the SQDG Team
