So pleased to be able to help get this off the ground:

Join us for the first jQuery Meetup in the Washington, D.C. metro area on the evening of Wed. April 28. We'll meet at the Microsoft - DC/Chevy Chase office to talk about what's new in jQuery UI 1.8 as well as discuss as a group how, how often, and where we want to get together in the future.

Please grab a free RSVP ticket so we know we have enough chairs as well as enough pizza, drinks and dessert. Mmmm - jQuery.

Agenda

Come for the pizza, stay for the rich web dessert, and get some jQuery in the middle there.
