You don't have to be a programmer or developer to be involved in the Homebrew Website Club. It's a place for anyone interested in making the internet work for them, rather than living within the confines and limitations set by Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, etc).
We'll be meeting in the UR Small Conference Room of the Urbana Regional Library
