Workshop on Bootstrap Methods
February 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Venue Capacity: 30 people
The capacity of the venue is about 30 people but because of no-shows, we have a policy of first-come, first-served on the night in the event of the room filling up. Managing no-shows is a problem all Meetups have to deal with and this is the fairest method we can think of. While we have never been in a position to turn anyone away for capacity reasons, it is always a possibility, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment on the night. We have the upstairs room booked from[masked] so if the room is in use till that time, we will gather in the bar below beforehand.
