June Update

From: Barrett C.
Sent on: Friday, June 4, 2010 10:04 AM
Hello all,

There's a lot going on around New Orleans right now, so I thought a short update was in order.

Next Meeting, Version Control
Our next meeting on June 16th and is about various version control tools. We're still looking to enlist a people who can give a quick tour of Mercurial, Git and Subversion. Shoot me an e-mail at [address removed] if you are interested.

The Microsoft TechEd conference is coming to town next week. If you can't make it to the conference itself, there are events around the city that might interest some of you.

Sunday Night:
Party w/ Palermo (Pretty much Dev party)
The Krewe (Meet & Greet)

Tues Night:
DoubleTake Software:

Wednesday Night:

GumboLabs iPhone class
GumboLabs is hosting sessions of the Standford iPhone development classes now through August. They've only viewed a couple of episode and it should be pretty easy to catch up.

BarCampNOLA, July 17th and 18th
The time is upon us once again for BarCampNOLA. Our local BarCamp has become a fixture of the New Orleans tech scene and it sounds like it won't let us down this year. Gnocode was announced at last year's BarCamp, so it holds a special place in our history. I would like to find a way for gnocode to have a good presence at BarCamp this year. Anyone have any ideas?

Also, and probably more importantly, one of our founding members, Matt Tritico, is responsible for BarCamp each year. He's pulled it off twice but he's looking for some help. If you are interested in helping him organize BarCamp, or you have an idea for it, just make a note when you signup at

Oil Spill
Obviously everyone knows about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. There was a good deal of discussion about it at Net2NO on Tuesday night, which got me thinking about ways we, as developers, could help. There are already apps out there like OilReporter for the iPhone, but I'm sure there are other opportunities for us to help since we are so close and directly affected. If you have any ideas please share them with the group via [address removed] or [address removed].

Blight project
At our last meeting there was good discussion about developing a web app to assist the community and blight. Anyone interested in helping out is encouraged to also go to [address removed] and continue the conversation.

A Little Bit of Help
Gnocode has grown a huge amount since it started last year and I know there is plenty more to do. I'm officially putting the word out for an co-organizer. So, if you have ideas for gnocode's future or just want to help out, give me a shout. You know where: [address removed]

All of this information is available on the website now too.

See you all later this month!
