UbuCon Summit is free, and SCALE is $85 for a full all access pass and $15 for just the expo floor. 16 19:19 < nhaines> Use the coupon code UBNTU to get half of the full SCALE pass. 17 19:19 < nhaines> Are ther any other events coming up this month? 18 19:20 < Roguehorse> unfortunately I've been too busy with other things to check 19 19:22 < nhaines> Okay, apparently nothing planned. Well, with the holidays that's to be expected. :) 20 19:23 < nhaines> #topic Announcements 21 19:23 < nhaines> The Ubuntu California leadership nomination passed, with only three nominations. 22 19:23 < nhaines> As per procedure, this means that the nominees are confirmed without an election. 23 19:23 < nhaines> So from January 1st, 2016 on, myself, ianorlin, and pleia2 are on the Ubuntu California leadership team. 24 19:24 < nhaines> I'd like to thank elky for all of her hard work for the team this year, and for continued success in her endeavours. 25 19:24 < Roguehorse> sounds good 😆 26 19:25 < nhaines> And I'd also like to thank pleia2 for volunteering to help, although truth be told she already helps out a ton, so there shouldn't be much difference now. 27 19:25 < nhaines> Does anyone else have business to announce? 28 19:26 < Roguehorse> It looks like I'll still be running EBLUG 29 19:27 < nhaines> Roguehorse: that's good to hear! I hope things pick up again in January. 30 19:28 < Roguehorse> yeah, 3 months away, I suspect not much has changed,but we'll find out 31 19:29 < nhaines> Okay then, onto our agenda items for tonight. 32 19:30 < nhaines> #topic Meetup group progress. 33 19:30 < nhaines> So far, with little advertising, our Meetup group has 57 members and 35 RSVPs for UbuCon Summit. 34 19:30 < nhaines> I think that's a pretty good start for just a couple of weeks. 35 19:30 < Roguehorse> This is new to me, will have to check it out. 36 19:31 < nhaines> The group is located at http://www.meetup.com/Ubuntu-California/ 37 19:31 < nhaines> I'd like to encourage everyone to use it for their events, so do let me or pleia2 know if you're hosting a public event and we can get things set up for you there. 38 19:32 < ianorlin> ok 39 19:32 < Roguehorse> cool 👍 40 19:34 < nhaines> #topic SCaLE 14X planning 41 19:34 < nhaines> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/Scale14x 42 19:34 < nhaines> UbuCon Summit planning is proceeding at speed and we're pretty close to done there. 43 19:35 < nhaines> The Ubuntu booth will be double-sized this year, so we'll still need lots of volunteers. 44 19:35 < nhaines> Canonical is helping to sponsor the booth, and so we'll finally have that vertical banner that I've wanted for so long. I've also requested Ubuntu Infographic t-shirts for the booth volunteers this time around. 45 19:36 < nhaines> Volunteers will need to be able to talk about Ubuntu and answer simple questions, and greet booth visitors. 46 19:37 < ianorlin> also is the booth bigger ? as last year we almost had so many volunteers it would turn off shy people from visiting the booth 47 19:37 < nhaines> You don't need to be an Ubuntu expert, and in fact it's going to be a great opportunity to learn more about Ubuntu in the cloud, on phones, and in the Internet of Things. 48 19:37 < nhaines> ianorlin: yes, as I mentioned, we have twice as much booth space this year. 49 19:37 < ianorlin> although the show floor can get loud 50 19:39 < nhaines> Anyone can stop by and greet people for a little bit, but anyone who can fill a 4 hour shift (with a break if desired) will receive a SCALE exhibitor badge the allows access to the entire show for free. 51 19:40 < nhaines> Also, I expect we'll have some Arizona LoCo members to help us again this year. 52 19:41 < nhaines> So please feel free to sign up at the wiki page if you can make it. 53 19:42 < nhaines> We'll have retail and developer phones to show off and we'll also be showing off the phone's convergence features. 54 19:43 < ianorlin> hmm ok anything else needed for the booth? 55 19:43 < nhaines> Plus we'll have an orange box and Canonical employees by to talk about some of the details. 56 19:44 < nhaines> I think the only thing left is incidentals, most of which I'm covering thanks to community funds and with what's left over from last year. 57 19:44 < nhaines> But the full list is on the wiki page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/Scale14x 58 19:45 < nhaines> So mostly we need volunteers. 59 19:45 < nhaines> That's about all I have for that now. 60 19:45 < nhaines> Any questions? 61 19:46 < Roguehorse> what would I have to pay for? room and food? 62 19:46 < ianorlin> and getting there I think 63 19:46 < nhaines> Roguehorse: everything except admission. 64 19:47 < Roguehorse> let me think on it. funds are still limited right now. 65 19:48 < nhaines> Okay, let us know by signing up on the wiki page and also at Meetup! 66 19:48 < Roguehorse> k 67 19:48 < nhaines> #topic Other business 68 19:49 < nhaines> This is our last meeting for the year. Before we wrap things up, is there anything else? 69 19:50 < Roguehorse> nah 70 19:51 < nhaines> Okay, our next meeting is on January 10, 2016. 71 19:51 < nhaines> Happy holidays, everyone! 72 19:51 < nhaines> #endmeeting
