My bad. What happened is that I emailed Dave Thomas about coming, and after an email or two he went dark and after waiting for him I kinda forgot about the project.
So! I guess what we need to do it schedule the darn thing and see what happens, eh? A number of people showed interest. Who would like to help me organize this thing?
We need to do a few things:
- Pick a location. I doubt we will get more than a dozen people at first, so we don’t need anything huge.
- Pick a topic/agenda/plan. We should probably review everything at http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/cgi-local/pragprog?HomePage├é to get an idea of what other groups have done.
- Schedule it and send out invites. I think we should still target Nov 15-17 just in case Dave can join us.
I would like to ask for a few volunteers (Brad? Gordon?) to help me get this done. Perhaps we can meet for an hour or two over a beer to plan this out.
Let’s take this offline for now. Please email me if you’re interested. I would like to schedule the planning meeting for sometime in the next week or so.
