SuperHappyDevHouse is better with friends, and although we have lots
of friends for you to meet when you come, we encourage you to invite
your friends! People tell us all the time how great SHDH is, and how
much happier/smarter/sexier they are after starting to attend.
Wouldn't you like to be the one to introduce your friends to DevHouse?
They'll be like, "Oh my gosh, if it weren't for YOUR NAME HERE, I
wouldn't have been exposed to such an amazing life changing
experience. I'm going to remember YOUR NAME HERE when I'm rich and
famous from all the connections, knowledge and inspiration I found at
