We will be participating in a group coding Kata, transforming "The Factory"
into a coding dojo.  The Kata practiced will be doing PragDave's Kata number 4, it may be helpful to practice, but not required.  Please bring a laptop if you have one available, we will be practicing in pairs so do not worry if you have no laptop.

Please RSVP with your pizza and pop preferences and number attending  to

Watch for an update and parking information to come out on Wednesday.

For more information on "The Factory" see

Parking information:

"Monroe Center 2 Ramp" looks good if you are just coming for the meeting, the lot between Ottawa, Ionia, Louis and Monroe center features first hour free and $1.00 per half hours after however there is no daily max.  See the link above for more options and directions.

May be card only "Arena Area Lot 3" looks great for all day with a $3.00 daily max.  Expect it to fill up quick it is located near Fulton and Weston.

May be card only The "Ottawa & Fulton Ramp" between Ottawa, Ionia, Fulton and Louis seems good if you will be there all day and the Arena Lot 3 is full ($9.00 max).

Hopefully this helps, but I usually end up circling around several times, get irritated and find the next thing I see.
