1 [03:01] <pleia2> #startmeeting 2 [03:01] <nhaines> \o/ 3 [03:01] <pleia2> #chair nhaines ianorlin pleia2 4 [03:01] <pleia2> #link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Meetings/16February07 5 [03:01] <pleia2> ^^ agenda :) 6 [03:01] <pleia2> #topic Upcoming events 7 [03:02] <pleia2> so we've got an Ubuntu Hour coming up in Berkeley on Feb 14th http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-california/3290-ubuntu-hour-berkeley/ 8 [03:02] <pleia2> I'll also likely host one in San Francisco on Wednesday, but time got away from me so I haven't added it to the LTP or Meetup, or announced it, I should do that tonight 9 [03:03] <pleia2> any other events that aren't listed? 10 [03:03] <nhaines> SGVLUG has a meeting on February 11th. The topic is "Building a Community." http://www.meetup.com/SGVTech/events/227991894/ 11 [03:03] <nhaines> Liz Krane will be talking about her experience growing the Learn to Code LA Meetup group to 2200 members in less than a year. 12 [03:03] <ianorlin> ok sounds nice but is still a bit of a drive for me 13 [03:04] <nhaines> They'll also be raffling off some leftover stuff from SCALE, so if you really miss Pasadena, it's a good excuse to go back. :) 14 [03:04] <pleia2> nhaines: any thoughts as to how we could convince Richard to start posting announcements to his Pasadena Ubuntu Hours to the team? or at least adding them to LTP or meetup? 15 [03:05] <pleia2> they're kind of invisible to the team at the moment, which is ashame for folks looking for LA-focused events (I don't remember the details for them, so I struggle to help people find info about them) 16 [03:05] <nhaines> pleia2: That's a good question. I owe him a phone call, so I'll mention it to him this week. 17 [03:05] <pleia2> cool 18 [03:06] <pleia2> sounds like that LUG meeting should be fun 19 [03:06] <pleia2> #topic Announcements 20 [03:06] <pleia2> anyone have any announcements? 21 [03:07] * ianorlin does not 22 [03:07] <pleia2> tablet news last week was pretty big :) http://insights.ubuntu.com/2016/02/04/canonical-reinvents-the-personal-mobile-computing-experience/ 23 [03:07] <pleia2> and our own nhaines is organizing the Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase this cycle http://nhaines.livejournal.com/69721.html 24 [03:08] <nhaines> Yes! 25 [03:08] <pleia2> materials for that get included in an LTS, which I learned at SCALE is what 97% of ubuntu users use 26 [03:09] <nhaines> TIL some people aren't perpetually running devel. 27 [03:09] <pleia2> hehe 28 [03:09] <pleia2> "some" 29 [03:10] <pleia2> it does offer perspective on the decision to switch to only 9 months support for the 6 months releases 30 [03:10] <nhaines> Indeed. 31 [03:11] <nhaines> I still think they should've waited two more interrim releases to do so, though. 32 [03:11] <pleia2> it was a bit abrupt 33 [03:12] <pleia2> alright, so moving along 34 [03:12] <pleia2> #topic UbuCon Summit / SCALE 14x post-mortem meeting. 35 [03:12] <pleia2> #link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/Scale14x 36 [03:12] <pleia2> I updated the wiki earlier with links to photos (are there other galleries of photos? Please add links!), blog posts and videos from the ubucon summit 37 [03:13] <nhaines> I believe I received photos from David Ellsworth, but I think we ran into a weird sharing name collision in OwnCloud, so I will troubleshoot. 38 [03:14] <pleia2> fun times 39 [03:15] <nhaines> I'd say UbuCon was a giant success. 40 [03:15] <pleia2> I agree :) 41 [03:16] <pleia2> I hope Canonical also found value in it and will continue supporting us in the future, and maybe some other UbuCons too 42 [03:16] <pleia2> nhaines: were you at the organizing team wrap-up meeting last week? 43 [03:17] <nhaines> pleia2: no, I couldn't make it, so that's another reason I owe Richard a phone call. 44 [03:17] <nhaines> But everything I've heard from Canonical so far is that they were very happy. 45 [03:17] <pleia2> I wasn't either (wrong side of the planet) 46 [03:17] <pleia2> that's good to hear :) 47 [03:18] <nhaines> And I believe they'll be working with UbuCon Europe as well. I'll be sitting in on that meeting Tuesday, if I can be up at 6:30am, which is always dubious. 48 [03:18] <pleia2> nice 49 [03:18] <pleia2> haha, yeah 50 [03:18] <ianorlin> yeah it went really well 51 [03:18] <nhaines> Probably the only thing I would do differently for UbuCon is to feature the Q&A more centrally. 52 [03:19] <ianorlin> nhaines: that would probably be nice 53 [03:19] <nhaines> But outside of that, I thought the unconference portion turned out really well. 54 [03:19] <pleia2> I would have liked to hear some more results from the unconference 55 [03:20] <pleia2> like how the track leads at UOS do a summary hangout to share 56 [03:20] <pleia2> so maybe a conclusion session where each group shares something 57 [03:20] <nhaines> That's a really good idea. 58 [03:20] <ianorlin> unconferences yeah that could be good sharing what happened at the others is one thing that could be better 59 [03:22] <nhaines> I thought the booth worked very well also, although I think we could've used that extra table after all. 60 [03:22] <pleia2> yeah, every time I came by the booth it was quite busy 61 [03:23] <ianorlin> yeah it seems booth has been quite busy last three years 62 [03:23] <nhaines> The booth's been really busy all 8 years. 63 [03:24] <pleia2> hehe 64 [03:25] <nhaines> The convergence demo was a huge hit. It'll be really exciting next year when it's running legacy desktop apps, too. 65 [03:25] * pleia2 nods 66 [03:26] <nhaines> Was there anything the booth could've done better or differently? 67 [03:27] <pleia2> no ideas from me 68 [03:28] <nhaines> The booth is pretty much a known quantity these days. 69 [03:28] <ianorlin> yep 70 [03:29] <nhaines> I would like to specifically thank Luis Caballero for being an absolute rockstar at the booth Friday and Saturday. 71 [03:29] <pleia2> yay, thanks Luis! 72 [03:29] <nhaines> Even the Canonical community team mentioned it to me. 73 [03:32] <nhaines> So to me, UbuCon Summit and SCALE were a giant success because a lot of people came together and worked hard. 74 [03:33] <pleia2> ++ 75 [03:33] <pleia2> excellent work everyone :) I had a blast 76 [03:33] <nhaines> Richard and I are always trying to keep from getting complacent about UbuCon, but I think the general formula works. :) 77 [03:35] <pleia2> #topic Any other business 78 [03:36] <pleia2> anything else for this meeting? 79 [03:36] * ianorlin does not have anything 80 [03:36] <nhaines> Nothing from me. 81 [03:37] <pleia2> alrighty, thanks guys 82 [03:37] <pleia2> #endmeeting
