Planning Meeting Recap

Meeting date:

 

3 August 2007, noon

 

Meeting location:

 

Panera Bread at the Summit

 

In Attendance:

 

Henry McBride

Jason Sandlin

Nick Hudson

Vincent Batts

Panzer

Elena McBride

 

LUG Fest Format:

 

Decided that a barcamp-style LUG Fest would meet our needs.

 

Conference Date:

 

After consulting UA and AU football schedules, decided that 22 September is the best date available this fall.

 

Location:

 

Tentatively UAB (open to suggestions). We need a minimum of 2 presentation rooms and one room for roundtable discussions.

 

Presentations:

 

Would like to get people to sign up to do presentations on the AlabamaLugFest website. If we do not have 10 presenters signed up by 8 September, the LF will be cancelled. Some presentation ideas included 'An introduction to Linux' and 'Getting started with scripting'.

Presentations should be no more than 50 minutes long (including any Q&As)

More popular presentations should be scheduled in the afternoon to allow extra time for people traveling to Bham.

 

For people visiting Birmingham:

 

Make list of recommended hotels available on AlabamaLugFest website.

 

Post-presentations:

 

Would like to have a social event after the presentations. Any ideas?

 

Action Items:

 

- Come up with list of presentation ideas. This will help us get presenters.

- Contact opensource vendors to get some loot to give away.

- Decide if we want to do a hardware swap on 21 September.

- Confirm location for conference.

- Beg/borrow equipment needed for presentations/conference (tables, chairs, projectors, etc.)

- Notify all Alabama LUGs (and non-Linux UGs) that LUGFest 2007 has been scheduled

- Decide what to do about food. Maybe do what IPSA does - let people pre-order a box lunch from Jason's Deli. Or they can leave for lunch.

- Consult with IPSA and TechBirmingham to see what assistance and advice they can provide.

- Decide if we are going to charge a fee to attend the conference. (What did SALUG do when they held LUGFest?)
