Our December event is once again a holiday extraviganza. We will be meeting at ArtBar on Gold and Second for our third annual holiday party. There will be a white elephant gift exchange.
But don't worry! Everything will be the same. We will still be on the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm. We will still have awesome presenters to talk to you about some cool topic related to the web. There will still be announcements on the httq website, twitter and facebook accounts for a few months while we make sure no one gets lost in the transition to the new name.
