Site Updates


Can-Con’s codemonkey here, I’ve updated the main page so you can now see our latest Tweets (although I’m sure you already follow us at @CanConSF right?) as well as adding a Help page for Registration because the app we use for registering memberships likes to make it’s buttons white (still working on how to make them non-white. Sorry!) and added the Message from the Chair.

See you in Ook – tober!

Signed, Codemonkey.
