Last nights meeting was a great success. It was the type of meeting that every new users group needs to have. It was our 'who are we, and what do we wish to accomplish' here meeting.
Our goal for the evening was 2 fold.
- Setup a plan of attack for the CodeCamp we wish to host later this year
- Talk about the direction we want this group to head.
Chicago Code Camp info
Right now the location is up in the air, but we think we have something nailed down and I will be following up with this later in the week. We are aiming for sometime in September in order to avoid the 'summer vacation' period.
Once we have the location/date set in stone we will make an announcement to the world and start to work with the other groups in the area as well as line up speakers.
Direction for the group
In the sprit of Alt, our goal is to make the meeting both informative and information, but at the same time encouraging participation.
Our overall format for out meetings will be as follows
6:00 - 6:30 - Socializing
6:30 - 7:30 - Pre-Planed Presentation
7:30 - 8:30ish - Open Spaces/Open Discussion format
8:30 - TBA - Get our drink on
Adam and Jordan are going to be working on getting a site up for the group ASAP, after I purchase the domain.
We are planning on meeting the second Wednesday of each month and right now we are meeting at the AbsoluteSolutions location downtown.
We hope this group can reach out and help raise awareness to various technologies as well as help grow the .Net community here in Chicago.
Till next time
