It’s been nearly two years since the last TDL user group meeting so Ian, myself and Garry decided it was about time for another one!
This is what Ian has posted today:
It’s been a couple of years since our last user group meeting and I am pleased to say that we finally have a date for our next user group event. This time the event is going to be held in “up north” , just of the M6 motorway near Warrington, part of the reason for this was the availably of a nice venue that isn’t going to cost us anything and that means we don’t have to try and get sponsorship or try and get money out of companies as we have done in the past.
The other change to the event is that this time it’s going to me more social than in the past, we are going to have less presentations and more hands on and networking time. I envisage having the room setup with tables for members to show off various technologies, maybe showing an iPad controlling a Media Center system or an XBMC setup on an embedded device.
We also plan to have a vintage computing area with a selection of classic and rare hardware and a education area showing of computer programming which could include basic Windows 8 and Windows Phone development and maybe iOS development.
At the moment we are trying to pull together range of exhibiters so if you have something you think you could show off let me know and can add it to our plans and if you have any suggestions for technologies you would like to see at the event let us know and we will see what we can do.
I have created a section for the user group on our forums, please post any suggestions and comments about the user group over there.
We want to try and make it an interactive and social event with very little (if any) Powerpoint so we we will appreciate your suggestions. I will open up registrations soon, for now we are looking for your input on how to make it a great event.
Are you going to come along? It will be fun!
