Once upon a time there was a gathering of engineers, sysadmins, programmers and other technical people. They came together in New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington, with curry and beer. Often, quite a lot of beer. They decided to continue this consumption each week, and thus Thursday Night Curry was born.
Years later, the gatherings continue. The focus has moved away from just technical matters, and includes anyone who wants to take part. Most of the participants still work with the Internet, but many other interesting people have become regulars.
It happens more or less every week, at the same place, at the same time.
If you’re hanging about looking for something to do after work before curry - then there is #BBC - Beer Before Curry - usually at J.J. Murphy & Co. in Cuba Mall - 119 Cuba Street Wellington from about 5:30pm. The TNC Mailing list often will advise details.
There is a simple mailing list for chatter between Thursdays. New members are expected to introduce themselves (brush up on your haiku skills), and attend curry sometime.
