A group working through Eric Redmond and Jim R. Wilson's book 7 Databases In 7 Weeks (http://pragprog.com/book/rwdata/seven-databases-in-seven-weeks)
I've been discussing doing this with some of my friends, and we thought it would be good to open it to more people. The plan is to get together once a week and for 8 weeks (1 getting started week and 1 week to discuss each section.) Eric lives in Portland, so we may be able to get him to come join us sometime as well. We don't have a meeting time yet, but it won't be Thursday evening as everyone interested so far is a member of EUGLUG (which meets then) We'll probably meet at <//> CodeChops assuming a) someone with a key wants to participate and b) the group doesn't have a strong preference for somewhere else.
Note: if you're not interested in databases, we are probably going to do Tate's 7 Languages in 7 Weeks after we finish the database book.
