((the OCAndroid (Hack Nights Meetup) 1 listing)+the event itself)-3's
(LSZTHR=discussion thread of All Additional Aspects, from-conception-to-legend, in that order))
(LT6POS THIS POST=(LT9482=(the listing+the event itself)'s initial history 1 http://meetup.com/OCA...
). Happenings from-conception-onward:
- (LT95LX=Before even this particular track occurred to me, I was already hard at work at developing multiple meeting tracks for the group.
(LT5I1H Get the the necessary background on this listing: read (LT5GBA The 1st history of (the OCAndroid Advanced+Intermediate Developers' Meetup #1 listing) & the event itself ) thru point (LT5HPX 2011.10.05(Wed) ...) then return here.) then)
- (LT94OZ=On 2011.09.2x: I first conceived of this for OCAndroid this when I first met SoCalAndroid founder & Leader Jeffery P. at one of the the Hack Nights SoCalAndroid advertises and holds most every Wed (predictable schedule) at (LSZ063=OCAndroid venue Smart-Soft of Irvine http://1.JotHere.com/...).
(LT94PD=There, indeed the purpose of my going there, we planned to make the monthly General OCAndroid meeting a co-meeting with the SoCalAndroid Hack Night.)
(LT94PD=Then I suggested OCAndroid could also list (so advertize to its members) these Hack Nights and he was pleased and agreed.
(LT94S5=At the time he was getting about 3 or 4 attendees, and I thought with OCAndroid advertizing we could increase that maybe 2 or possibly even 3x.)
(LT94S5=I then envisioned this would be
(LT950I=added to the growing collection of (Meetup.com/OCAndroid Meeting Tracks: http://1.JotHere.com/...) I was developing for the group, though this would be the most different of them, because:)
(LT9514=it would be for an existing established meeting of another group and just:
(LT958V=making it a co-meeting but)
(LT959D=following the established meeting practices as much as much-as-feasible:
(LT95CY=yes, OCAndroid members would still follow OCAndroid rules & procedures (such as good profiles & attendance-keeping), but otherwise they would follow whatever the existing meeting does))
- (LT95R4=I asked Jeffery P.
(LT95R4=if he would join our group and advertize his meetings on it, including insuring the listings on the two groups were in sync. I told him it would be fairly easy as he already had the listings, just mostly relist them, and answer OCAndroid members' Qs when they had them --I could make him a Meetup Event Organizer I told him.)
(LT95W1=But he said No. It was fine if we advertized them and brought members, but he emphatically didn't want to join Meetup, "another social networking site" and I couldn't talk him into. So instead he proposed that some of his existing members join our group, too, to keep our listings in sync.)
(LT95ZF=And there came the idea of advertizing & getting leaders for this position. It would be a pretty easy job, as one didn't have to really run the meetings (SoCalAndroid, notably Jeffery, would take care of that), just take care of the online Meetup listings and take attendance and the other duties of a leader, but without actually having to run the main content of the meetups).)
- (LT95IE= 2011.10.05: At the general Meeting, when proposed the tracks, I described the OCAndroid Hack Night and 2 positions available, and got 2 takers:
as Lucy's attendance & key results post also details.
- SoCalAndroid member Michael C. reluctantly agreed for the primary job. He was not yet a OCAndroid member but promised to join.
- & Sanjeev delightfully volunteered to be the secondary. He said he was already a member of both groups.
(LT96CT=So afterwards I got the name, phone, & email of both of them.)
- to be continued
