We have a conference room we could make available as well.
711 Lucky Lane, Coarsegold, CA 93614
I'm thinking we should look towards Fresno!
I might have a few $$'s that I need to take a gamble with!!!
I think Kern can set one up later... Looks like Fresno / Visalia has more active spice heads...
Typical 1st SW Meeting is just simple introductions and then some discussion about SW and how it can be used in your environment... but also about questions on setup / design / troubleshooting and networking with other admins in similar situations...
ie, shrinking or nill budget, growing data, aging machines and infrastructure, and other blues.
Normally this page has information on general agenda and other setups for meetings..
Brian if you can set a date I'll come... I imagine a few others will as well ...
(SW would like to set it ~3-4 weeks out and notify Ashley so they can help promote it.)
Projector + Laptop + internet to reach demo SW servers (people can show their setup or how to fix or do tasks within SW)
Wireless for the whole room to use is usually a nice addition...
(I do have a spare open-mesh box - that I can loan to the cause for the day - as long as it has the ability to get a dhcp IP it will put the guests on their own network... haven't tested how many it will support though)
Possibly a Ustream account but not required or necessary... (sometimes the guys from overseas or just across the continent will tune and take part as well)
