Place: Idealab in Pasadena (RSVP for more details)
Please RSVP on the Meetup site so we can get headcount for food and drinks, sponsored this month by "Q":
Chris Mattmann has a wealth of experience in software design, and in the construction of large-scale data-intensive systems. His work has infected a broad set of communities, ranging from helping NASA unlock data from its next generation of earth science system satellites, to assisting graduate students at the University of Southern California (his Alma mater) in the study of software architecture, all the way to helping industry and open source as a member of the Apache Software Foundation. When he's not busy being busy, he's spending time with his lovely wife and son braving the mean streets of Southern California.

There are several parking garages within walking distance:
The nearest are probably Parson's parking structure and the adjacent lot on the corner of Union and Pasadena Ave. On-street parking is metered, but only until 8pm. That's the least expensive parking option, but availability is limited. For rail users, the nearest Goldline Metro stop is Memorial Park, which is a few blocks east of the Idealab offices and is a great option for those coming from LA.
