This group aims to bring together software professionals who work with Renewable Energy projects. The group's name is: Software for Renewable Energy or SWRE. SWRE should be pronounced like the French word: soiree. As such, we are all very valuable party-goers in this industry and the more we talk and work together, the greater impact we'll all have.
Potential topics for meetups include:
* presentations/demos of RE related projects we're all working on
* discussions of what tools and technologies we enjoy working with the most
* discussions of needs for SW tools/utilities we run into over and over again in this industry
* discussions of the standards or APIs available to us for our projects
I see our role in this industry as crucial. Without us, data won't be collected. Without us, financing decisions cannot be made. Without us, companies cannot model their new products. Without us, installations cannot be monitored or controlled.
Most meetups will be held at the Hacker Dojo in Mountain View.
