October 2007 Meeting Minutes

The joint Tampa Java User Group and USF's IEEE-CS Google October meeting was a complete success. We had our most attended meeting so far. At some point I counted 43 attendees including USF students and Java professionals. Although the weather wasn't the best, our attendees enjoyed food, giveaways, and a great presentation from Google.

Here are some highlights

- Networking started at 6.30 pm as people started to arrive
- Google passed around swags (pens, notebooks, etc).
- Plenty of food from Panera
- Presentation lasted an hour
- Give aways including an a 30 Gig iPod
- Finally at the end, Google entertained questions about working at Google, Inc. (they are looking for talented individuals and they do no evil!)

Special Thanks
