Greetings Pgh Technologists,
The first meeting is in the books. We had 17 people RSVP and 16 show—that is a success!
What happened: For the first half hour we simply conversed about topics of our mutual interests. We started the round of introductions thereafter and in the last half an hour we discussed the vision, format and organization for the group and future events. We decided that a formal event with about an hour of scheduled programming followed by networking and drinks at a nearby pub would be great to have quarterly. In between we would have two events with face-to-face discussions, where attendance may be lower. Six people volunteered to contribute in various ways, as listed below; they will be added as event organizers of the group.
Marta DePaul: PR
Nick Pinkston: Venue
Kariithi Kilemi: Speakers
Rocky Medure: Collaboration IT
Arthur Tu: Website
Istvan Jonyer: Demos & Scheduling
Our next event is scheduled for August 4th (location TBD); mark your calendars.
Istvan Jonyer, Ph.D.
