[14:35:59] <ebel> Duvelhedz: yeah been there. [14:36:10] <ebel> czajkowski: it's a bit of a walk... end of temple bar. [14:36:19] <Duvelhedz> Its right by christchurch on that hill going towards the quays [14:36:24] <Mean-Machine> one needs a walk after that buffet anyways :P [14:37:12] <czajkowski> could we map as we go along? [14:37:19] <czajkowski> eat walk n map to a pint? [14:37:22] <czajkowski> just a thought ? [14:38:00] <Mean-Machine> osm ;-] [14:38:22] <ebel> :) [14:38:36] <ebel> possibly could map, central dublin is fairly good :) [14:39:12] <Duvelhedz> ebel: your right, there is plenty of choice out there [14:40:07] <Duvelhedz> Karma may just be a bit too quiet if we want newcomers to be introduced to Ubuntu [14:40:08] <czajkowski> ok Duvelhedz could you please mail the list after meeting and suggest a few pubs as I dont know the city well and would like to firm up on this soon so we can blog and advertise [14:40:18] <czajkowski> Please [14:40:40] <Duvelhedz> czajkowski: sure [14:40:43] <ebel> Duvelhedz: quiet is good. more talking. :) [14:40:59] <czajkowski> Duvelhedz: thanks shall keep an eye on email so tonight [14:41:02] <czajkowski> right moving on [14:41:03] <czajkowski> ebel: :) [14:41:11] <ebel> something like doodle would be good for selecting the venus [14:41:41] <czajkowski> Duvelhedz: yes perhaps doodle would be great here [14:41:54] <czajkowski> list 2-3 pubs, ppl chose and hey presto we have a winner [14:42:20] <ebel> so, for the release party, we need to (a) get a good idea of how many are coming, and (b) collect ideas for the pub after and (c) select a pub [14:42:34] <ebel> next topic [14:42:35] <Duvelhedz> czajkowski: bang on, takes away the element of been blames for picking "the wrong place" on the day [14:42:43] <ebel> [topic] Bug Jam - thoughts post event [14:43:08] <ebel> topic suggested by czajkowski [14:43:09] <Mean-Machine> good day overall [14:43:20] <czajkowski> right I was asked to bring this up by someone who was at the event [14:43:23] <czajkowski> I wasnt at it [14:43:29] <czajkowski> but seemingly it wa s alow turn out [14:43:33] <czajkowski> was this due to publicity [14:43:34] <czajkowski> venue [14:43:40] <czajkowski> lack of interest [14:43:48] <czajkowski> or what can we do differently / [14:44:17] <ebel> there were about 5 or 6 people there [14:44:30] <theirishpenguin> Well, I made a start on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bzr/+bug/264275 :-) [14:44:32] <ubot3> Malone bug 264275 in bzr "bazaar internal error if adding file in a linked directory" [Undecided,Confirmed] [14:44:42] <ebel> this was the global jam we had in TOG the hackerspace [14:45:05] <ebel> for the record I took some photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/rorymccann/tags/globaljam/ [14:45:15] <ebel> and Mean-Machine has some videos i believe [14:45:25] * Mean-Machine was working on cleaning up and redisigning thw wiki a bit [14:46:31] <ebel> the new wiki page is very nice Mean-Machine [14:46:49] <Mean-Machine> 1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLtNxLwkWxg [14:47:09] <czajkowski> ok but my point is we;ve over 70 folks signed up [14:47:13] <czajkowski> and very few people showing up [14:47:15] <Mean-Machine> 2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTx_ppGvPrc [14:47:17] <czajkowski> how can we help to change this [14:47:58] <ebel> What did people who were there think of the venue? [14:48:01] <Mean-Machine> what might have scared ppl a bit was the msg about not having enough seats [14:48:11] <Mean-Machine> maybe? [14:48:18] <ebel> It wasn't big and couldn't have handled 30 people, but it wasn't squashed. [14:48:26] <czajkowski> aye [14:48:53] <czajkowski> would it be better if we had said our team is gonna work together on wiki's for the first 2 hrs [14:48:55] <Mean-Machine> we didn't advertise the event as good as the last one [14:49:00] <czajkowski> to get people more ued to it? [14:49:21] <czajkowski> ok so we know for any other event we need to increase our publicity ok [14:49:32] <ebel> it was quite free form this time [14:49:41] <ebel> perhaps something with a bit more structure might help? [14:49:52] <ebel> Mean-Machine: good point about the seats... can be a bit off putting [14:49:53] <Mean-Machine> yup [14:50:09] <czajkowski> mods [14:50:39] <czajkowski> so more structure and a bit of hand holding which is not bad and a good way to get more ppl involved as they think they cannot do it on their own [14:50:45] <Mean-Machine> I think that ppl need structure at that kind of events, especially when they want to learn something [14:51:16] <ebel> as well as structure, what about a bit of competition on the day to encourage people who already know about it? [14:51:45] <ebel> Free pint for whoever increases their launchpad karma the most that day? [14:51:53] <Mean-Machine> it does motivate ;-] [14:52:09] <czajkowski> ok [14:52:22] <czajkowski> so fo future events [14:52:28] <czajkowski> possibly not the release party [14:52:34] <czajkowski> but structure [14:52:37] <czajkowski> leading is needed [14:52:45] <czajkowski> to get ppl more motivated and interacting [14:52:53] <czajkowski> so my next big question [14:53:01] <czajkowski> is how do we get the members that have signed up [14:53:02] <czajkowski> to come along [14:53:09] <czajkowski> and get invovled what do we need to do [14:53:16] <czajkowski> again a thought would be doodle [14:53:25] <ebel> theirishpenguin: what did you think about the event? How did you hear about it? [14:53:29] * shane_fagan present but late [14:53:39] <ebel> hiya shane_fagan [14:53:44] <czajkowski> ask our members what they want to do, more talks, get togethers, more jams etc ? [14:53:46] <Mean-Machine> shane_fagan: hi [14:54:40] <Mean-Machine> czajkowski: I agree [14:54:40] <theirishpenguin> On the event, I agree that more structure would be good. [14:54:50] <Duvelhedz> Doodle could be used to see what people want to learn on the day [14:55:29] <theirishpenguin> I think getting people interested is also an exercise in community building [14:55:42] <ebel> and a flip side, people who want to show off something, could say "I know X, who wants to learn more about X?" [14:56:10] <theirishpenguin> I'm at the python ireland meetup and I'm wondering how many py ireland devs would consider turning up. [14:56:50] <theirishpenguin> And if the answer is less than 'most' then I wonder why not. [14:56:50] <ebel> I wonder about a themed track at a future jam. [14:57:01] <czajkowski> theirishpenguin: can I ask you do use doodle to mail the loco and as what they want to know more about or do within the LoCo [14:57:05] <ebel> "Help improve $TECH in ubuntu" ? [14:57:06] <czajkowski> I really want to get more ppl invovled here [14:57:13] <ebel> (in this case python) [14:57:18] <czajkowski> which is why new folks are getting tasks rather then the same people [14:57:57] <czajkowski> so Duvelhedz is gonna send poll out on post beers on release and if theirishpenguin could send out a poll also on what folks want to get from the LoCo it would be great start [14:58:19] <theirishpenguin> I don't know what doodle is but would be happy to give it a go. [14:58:50] <czajkowski> theirishpenguin: doodle.com [14:58:58] <ebel> theirishpenguin: http://doodle.com/ a website for running polls [14:58:59] <czajkowski> set up polls and let ppl tick beside them [14:59:08] <theirishpenguin> In terms of getting people interested in Ubuntu python (which is widely used in Ubuntu) development... [14:59:26] <theirishpenguin> ... it will take time. Structuring programming events can be hard. [14:59:41] <czajkowski> in terms of development, more talks, , more get togethters, help with tranaslatons, documentaion, or more local jams etc [14:59:47] <theirishpenguin> Checking out doodle.com as we speak. [15:00:50] <theirishpenguin> Thanks czajkowski, ebel [15:01:29] <czajkowski> great [15:01:31] <czajkowski> ok [15:01:35] <theirishpenguin> The first thing newbie's (to such an event) will want is low hanging fruit. [15:01:42] <czajkowski> yarp [15:01:49] <ebel> yeah [15:01:52] <shane_fagan> Send them to do ubuntu docs [15:01:56] <theirishpenguin> So before the next event it would good to have a list of easy tasks. [15:02:05] <czajkowski> yes [15:02:06] <ebel> so we should really try to cater for all sectos. [15:02:10] <theirishpenguin> i'll check it out [15:02:20] <ebel> newbies, hardcore hackers, specific interests., etc ? [15:02:21] <shane_fagan> (they generally have a load of easy stuff to do) [15:02:23] <czajkowski> shane_fagan: lets not send anyone anywyheere till we can help them [15:02:31] <czajkowski> shane_fagan: lets start locally before we go global ok [15:02:40] <theirishpenguin> The other big think i think - is if ppl cant already code a bit let's teach em! [15:02:43] <czajkowski> we are of no use to the community unless we can help ourselves first [15:02:56] <shane_fagan> Ok [15:03:13] <theirishpenguin> I'm happy to show anyone that turns up Ruby or Python programming instead of working on bugs myself. [15:03:19] <czajkowski> cool [15:03:31] <shane_fagan> thats good [15:03:31] <czajkowski> I was at the hackerspace over in toronoto and they hold classes [15:03:33] <czajkowski> just an idea [15:03:41] <theirishpenguin> We should advertise the fact that we can do a teaching programming stint for those who are interested [15:04:06] <theirishpenguin> That sounds pretty cool czajkowski [15:04:21] <theirishpenguin> Would be great if we could do the same. [15:04:29] <ebel> czajkowski: FTR a php class is starting in TOG soon [15:04:39] <theirishpenguin> Cool [15:04:42] <shane_fagan> The problem I found with most events is that they are too far away [15:04:50] <shane_fagan> So location does matter [15:04:59] <ebel> shane_fagan: 1/3 of the irish population lives in Dublin :P [15:05:01] <Mean-Machine> * [15:05:04] <theirishpenguin> Who can attend? Do you need to be signed up to tog to attend the php class? [15:05:17] <ebel> shane_fagan: why not run something yourself :) [15:05:22] <Mean-Machine> TOG does Electronic Fashion http://www.tog.ie/2009/10/tog-does-electronic-fashion/ [15:05:27] <ebel> theirishpenguin: I'm not sure, it hasn't start for definite yet. [15:05:51] <shane_fagan> I would in carlow but nobody would come im afraid [15:06:02] <theirishpenguin> I know someone who'd be interested. I'm sure that loads of ppl would be. [15:06:20] <Mean-Machine> shane_fagan: I bet you'd find a few ppl in college [15:06:31] <shane_fagan> Mean-Machine: I know of 1 [15:06:36] <ebel> shane_fagan: yeah worth a shot [15:06:54] <Mean-Machine> shane_fagan: that's a start [15:06:56] <shane_fagan> ill ask the SU for some space some evening [15:06:57] <czajkowski> shane_fagan: ok while they are in dublin the majoity of oss folks are here, an optipn would be to run one locally in carlow, saying nobody would come proves why we run a lot in dublin. [15:07:27] <shane_fagan> true [15:07:42] <shane_fagan> But its just hard for people down the country [15:08:24] <czajkowski> but as you've just said yourself.......... and you're in a college. also last few events we;ve had we've had folks come fro limerick, cork, galway, athlone [15:08:27] <czajkowski> all attends [15:08:36] <theirishpenguin> Another thing is marketing such an event. Long term I'd like to know how we get more females involved in an event like this and also less geeky types. [15:09:09] <shane_fagan> how? [15:09:10] <Mean-Machine> do we need to discuss more or should we move on to the next one? [15:09:34] <theirishpenguin> Before we finish [15:09:54] <ebel> yeah there's a lot here [15:09:59] <theirishpenguin> I'd just like to say that I'd be happy to organise the next hackign event [15:10:14] <Mean-Machine> theirishpenguin: cool [15:10:17] <theirishpenguin> and I'll try to tackle the issues raised here. [15:10:30] <airurando> czajkowski, what not try to get those members from limerick, cork, galway, athlone to set meets up regionally? [15:10:52] <ebel> theirishpenguin: cool [15:10:54] <theirishpenguin> We can discuss more on the ubuntu-ie list or if there is something more suitable then plz suggest. [15:11:08] <Mean-Machine> airurando: that's how it should be [15:11:09] <ebel> theirishpenguin: irc or the mailing list is great. [15:11:11] <ebel> theirishpenguin: irc or the mailing list is great. [15:11:14] <shane_fagan> yep [15:11:26] <theirishpenguin> In terms of getting people involved I think the colleges are crucial. [15:11:47] <theirishpenguin> ok ebel. I will use the mailing list. [15:12:19] <ebel> theirishpenguin: irc aswell :) [15:12:36] <czajkowski> airurando: ideally yes and then they operate under the Ubuntu-ie LoCo [15:12:50] <czajkowski> problem is with onlu 1-2 ppl in each area it's harder that way [15:13:12] <shane_fagan> But 1-2 would bring along a few others [15:13:13] <czajkowski> plus we also need to make sure if thyey are flying the Ubuntu-ie flag they conform to the COC etc [15:13:22] <theirishpenguin> ebel: I'll try but I find async comm the easiest. [15:13:43] <czajkowski> rght so I think we have some good ideas for the next event [15:13:44] <theirishpenguin> I think that we need to focus on one area first (Dublin) then replicate elsewhere.
