Nice idea. Just wondering, how do you cover the book chapters? Do you read it during the meeting, or folks should read it before the call?

Hi, you should read the chapters before the meeting. We will be covering two chapters in each meeting but meeting every other week. This first meeting was more of a kickoff so we’ll be covering the first two chapters two weeks from now.

Our next meeting is Sunday, December 10th, and considering the time delay in acquiring equipment for the book’s projects alongside the holiday season, this meeting will be more casual.

The Sunday, December 24th meeting will be skipped.

The Sunday, January 7th meeting will target Chapters 1, 2, and 3.

There is a voting form to measure interest as we prepare to select our next book.
