Summary of the January 3, 2010 meeting

scott_ev called the meeting to order at 9:00 PM

Agenda: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam/Meetings/10January3

scott_ev then gave some announcements:

  • I believe most of you know that I am only moderating meetings on a temporary basis: I am not the team leader. Our team leader, johnc4510, is taking some time off from moderating our meetings. He is still around handling other aspects of running our LoCo and generally taking care of things that don't require a public presence. In time, this should change and we'll again be rewarded with the opportunity to interact with him. Until then we'll just have to see what we can do to keep this team active and on track.

  • There will be a 10.04 Lucid Lynx release party at Boulders on Broadway in Tempe (http://www.bouldersonbroadway.net/) on the 24th of April. We will be heading there from the monthly installfest at UAT (http://tinyurl.com/y8w89o8). Installfest goes from 10am - 4pm. Boulders is a great place for us to meet since we can gave the upstairs room to ourselves and we can have access to the interweb tubes. (xHans mentioned that wifi would be set up for Boulders) We should have some demos up for the Installfest and also set up a couple for the party.

  • Brainstorm Top 5 this week:

Ubuntu Brainstorm is a community site geared toward letting you add your ideas for Ubuntu. You can submit your own idea, or vote for or against another idea. http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/ntu.com/UserDays .



scott_ev then asked xHans for any PLUG and class announcements:

  • PLUG devel is this Thursday night over at UAT _ http://PLUG.phoenix.az.us/node/554

  • Community college classes start on the 19th - http://www.LuftHans.com/Classes/ . We have GNU/Linux Networking Administration (services for a small/medium business). There's also Shell Scripting, Intro to Javascript, Web Scripting w/ PHP and Web Devel II. All of those are 8 week courses. The Intro to GNU/Linux is also 8 weeks running in two different locations at night and now also running in the morning. I don't yet know the status of the OpenOffice.org or C classes. All CC classes should be starting the week of the 19th.

  • I believe the security/hackfest is now the 2nd Tuesday of the month, so a week from Tuesday. http://PLUG.phoenix.az.us/security

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 9:31 PM.
