We are pleased to announce the Providence PUG / PVD VMUG Holiday Party to be held on Wednesday, 12/7/16, 6:00PM at Lock and Clue, Pawtucket, RI.

Providence VMUG has secured reservations for 44 people to take part in "escape room" games. Groups of 6 or 8 will be locked in a room and challenged to escape by solving puzzles.

Providence Puppet User Group will provide refreshments for attendees before and after the games.

You may still attend this event if you choose not to participate in the game. Come network in a relaxed atmosphere and socialize with your peers. This is a 21+ event. Please, no guests.

Please sign the waiver ahead of time if you intend to participate in a game:

There is NO PARKING in between the mill complex. There is on street parking and a parking lot in front of the building. There is a smaller parking lot to the side. Lastly, there is a large parking lot directly behind the building. Please see Parking Map for more details. Parking Map:

However, if you are not ready to enter the room at its start time you may lose your ability to participate.

Arrive with your waivers already signed! Here is a link:

You will not be allowed to play if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs and will forfeit your reservation.

During the game you can hang your coat and place your items in lockers. We will not be responsible for lost or stolen items so leave precious possessions at home or in your car.

You have 60 minutes to escape from your event space.

Please solve all puzzles by critical thinking and not by physical strength. If you can not move something with three fingers, it is not suppose to move.

You may ask for help during the game. However, in order to be considered for the leaderboard, you may ask for no more than two hint during your adventure.

You play our real-life escape games at your own consent and risk; Lock & Clue and its employees cannot be held liable.

The rooms are equipped with security cameras.

Do not take pictures, video or audio recordings in the game rooms. Mobile phones are not to be used during a game.

With your consent, our team can take photos of you and your team after the game and put it on Lock and Clue's official website and Facebook page. Feel free to post them on your pages!

Please keep the clues, solutions, and combinations a secret, so others can enjoy the game as well!

The docker command to spin up your own instance is: docker run -p 8080:8080 -p 50000:50000 jenkinsci/jenkins:2.0-alpha-3

Prior to CloudBees Tom held numerous DevOps positions focused on Operations and Infrastructure. He is passionate about teaching DevOps, and enabling client success.
