As busy as things are, last week Boyle Software’s New York City team was able to squeeze in a joyful evening with some friends and clients to cook up and devour a fantastic Italian meal at Rustico Cooking in midtown Manhattan. It was a great night to catch up with colleagues and friends and reflect on what an excellent year it’s been. And just check out the amazing menu that we prepared:

We have been thrilled to play host to the Open Source NYC Meetup a couple of times in recent months at our HQ at 42 West 24th. Last week’s Meetup featured a compelling discussion of intellectual property law as it relates to open source development.
