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


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.




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




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.




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?)
