Many people have emailed us
and asked, "What is the Migrant Programmer 'Gathering'?".
The "Gathering" is a monthly meeting of the
"core" migrants of the Migrant Programmer collective. The
"core" migrants are the founders of the Migrant programmer
site. The site was founded in 1997 to propagate the need for quality
within the technological workplace.
Programmer collective contains technologists within many different
areas of the IT realm - Networking, Data Warehousing, E-Commerce,
Human Resources, Project Management, Quality Assurance, Systems
Friday of every month is when the "Gathering" takes place.
It is usually located at the Winking
Lizard Tavern in Bedford, Ohio. Migrants come to feast upon the
mighty Cajun Wings and drink various types of liquored refreshments.
In this setting, the Migrant Programmer is at home. Within a short
time, you will hear the familiar bantering of new technologies,
arguments over technologies, discussions on processes and quality
practices, as well as horror stories from the field.
The choice of nourishment varies at the "Gathering" but
consists mainly of just about everything on the menu except fish.
The Cajun Wings are the preferred "wing", which is
followed by poppers, skins, and phred's fries.
thing is very certain. Extra Cajun Sauce is a necessity. This sauce
makes the wings go down smooth! Too much of the stuff and you can
actually start solving network router problems in your head!

Migrant "Gathering" is open to anyone!
