Re: [ruby-107] Change meeting time for Ruby Group?

From: Alex S.
Sent on: Wednesday, October 10, 2012 12:22 PM
I'm the chair of the ACM chapter (acm.psu.edu) on campus, which is our student computer science club. This semester and historically we've also held meetings Wednesdays at 7, which has prevented some interested ACM members from attending the Ruby meetup.

Evenings generally would work better for students, there's just this conflict with the group of students most likely to attend. We vote on a new meeting time/day each semester, so we're only fixed through December. I can keep you posted with when we're meeting next semester to avoid another conflict

Personally I'd prefer a lunchtime meeting although as Alan pointed out that may not work for all students.

Thanks,
Alex

Scott,
 
The lunchtime slot would generally make it more difficult for me to attend.  With the meetings in the evening, I don't have to make up the time at work.  Furthermore, given the unpredictable nature of job responsibilties and work related meetings, I'm not sure I could count on having almost 2 hours in the middle of the day. 
 
While I have potential conflicts with work, what about students?  Given changing class schedules, I would think that students would have an easier time making a 7:00 pm meeting than a 11:30 am one.
