(Zeineb) Introduction

Hello and welcome to episode # 37 of the IoT weekly Podcast, brought to you by Gearforge Software. My name is Zeineb, and I'm joined by my co-hosts and good friends, Cliff and Matthew.

What We Have Been Doing

Zeineb : Drove out to a friend’s farm to collect almonds, ended up in a graveyard at 10PM.

Matthew : Checking out Perl 6.

Cliff: I was off having fun in Maine, eating lots of Lobster. We also stopped in at Niagara falls on the way back. We also have a new puppy named Chewy. So now we have a Chewy, a Yoda and a Zoey.

(Cliff) Feedback
