Thanks to all that came to Barcamp Gold Coast today - it was fun as usual, and slightly less disorganised than last time!
Thanks to our sponsors Ninefold and Dundas Lawyers - and special thankyou to my fellow unorganisers
- David Tangye
- Lucas Brandt (+ Jo)
- Dave Baker
- Vivian Crompton
and Gavin for loaning projector.
Yong at the Johnston St cafe probably also deserves a special mention for opening up specially on a Sunday for us - I threw him a tip for his trouble. He then gave me a load of cakes in return for my tip!... please give them your patronage if you are around the TechSpace they are such nice people that run the place and the coffee and food is good.
For those interested in the XBMC on Raspberry PI - I did finally get it all working at home playing some movies from my SAN. There is a problem with either the SD card or card slot on that unit which caused me a lot of grief today. The software does have a few quirks in it - but it is still very beta so I have high hopes.

For those that keep asking me about Barcamp Brisbane - there is one in the planning (not by me) so watch this space. After today's Barcamp I think we might also have Barcamp unorganisers for Barcamp Toowoomba and Barcamp Sunshine Coast - if they happen they will be put up on this meetup group.
Until next time
ps. I completely forgot to give away the free stuff from freetronics. Will have a couple off LeoSticks to give away for next Barcamp.
