Here is the invite from BAADD:
So it is that time of year again, when BAADD calls upon the developer Community to come together and join us for dinner at our place!  On October 25, 2011 the Bay Area Association of Database Developers will host our 26th Annual Dinner Meeting in San Francisco, CA.   Our theme this year will be "Trends in the software development industry - Technological and Business perspectives".   Today's software developers face ever increasing challenges in managing diverse data sources (including NoSQL and Big data), in developing new technologies to support them and integrating legacy applications into new paradigms.  Often a myriad of tools and resources are required to get the job done.  

Where is all of this taking us - what lies ahead?   There are none are better qualified to answer these questions than you, the leaders and developers and team players that deal with these issues every day.  Please come share a table with us and your perspectives about what lies ahead in our industry.  David Chilcott will be our moderator for the evening, helping to keep the conversation informative and on point.  And as always there will be plenty of time to mingle, converse and get to know your fellow developers.  

Our environment is friendly and relaxed - you will meet people and presenters from user group meetings that you may not have been able to attend in the past year, as well as  those whose presentations you enjoyed, and you will have a chance to rub elbows with leaders in the developer community.  This extended network of professional peers is a virtual security blanket for your career.  It is our mission at BAADD to provide our members with access to that network through as many avenues as possible, and the Annual Meeting is one of the best opportunities you'll find.

The event will be held at Microsoft’s San Francisco office, 835 Market Street, Suite 700 on October 25, 2011.  A buffet dinner catered by Miraglia will be served starting at 6:30pm along with wine from the Friedstein cellars.  We will begin the formal meeting at 7:00pm. This meeting is open to all wishing to attend, and free for BAADD members (you can join or renew your membership at the door).  Members may bring dinner guests at cost of $20.00 per guest.  
Your participation helps keep this organization healthy and vibrant and that in turn supports the Community at large.  BAADD continues to host user group meetings at no cost to attendees.  This is possible due to the generous donations from our Sponsors and the work of your volunteer board who coordinate the sponsorship relations that help generate operating cash, recruit presenters, organize meetings rooms and meals and, last but not least, great raffle prizes.  In turn we ask for your support by becoming a BAADD member, or renewing your membership in this organization, and joining us on October 25th.  
Membership gives you a say in the direction BAADD takes, in the groups and events we support - your voice counts!  This year we have two open seats on the Board of Directors, and one seat up for re-election. We welcome and encourage members both new and old to throw their hats in the ring for these volunteer positions. Take the opportunity to influence the governance of the organization and its future direction!  No prior experience is required - just a current BAADD membership and a desire to give back to the community.  If you are interested, please email me so that we can get your name on the ballot.

So come out and help us bring the Community together on October 25th.  Send your RSVP to [masked] and please be sure to indicate how many will be attending.  We would be delighted to see you there!
Best Regards,

Margaret Duddy

President - Bay Area Association of Database Developers
