Re: [lsug] Beyond Dojos

Hello Pawel & Lsug community,
I like the idea of having a mixture of talks / live code demos / people showing things they are working on - all in the one evening.  I think that rather than modifying the dojo too much perhaps we modify the other monthly session we have.

I'd like to keep something where we actually try write Scala once a month, maybe with 30 minutes of lightning talks to warm us up but its not my opinion alone that counts.

Whilst a good speaker or interesting topic can be run as a single talk, I am sure we would be keen to get a little more creative at our regular monthly spot at SkillsMatter.  We have done an ad-hoc session before and thanks to people like Richard Dallaway, Maciej Matyjas, Kevin Wright and others who contributed it worked really well.

I also like the round table format, where we come up with things we want to work on and it would also be great to incorporate things like this. 

The LJC, GDC, London Clojurians and London Software Craftsmanship communities all share members to some extent, so doing stuff together would just be a matter of co-ordination and communication - I'd be happy to help as it makes my life easer (I can go to more cool stuff).

I'll be back at the dojo in December so happy to help get feedback from the community there - and hopefully everyone will let us know on the mailing list what they think about these ideas.

Thanks Pawel

I was wondering if it makes sense to organize LSUG Lightning Talks.
What are lightning talks you ask? It's a meeting format where people
give 5-minute presentations followed by questions.
You can do rants, present a technology, methodology or talk about some
other presentation or conference you attended or show off your side
If you have a topic you would like to present, post it here, so we
know how many people are interested in presenting.
Maybe we should try to organize the lightning talks together with LJC
or Clojure user group under the umbrella of functional programming?

Another idea is having meeting with just discussions, similar to
London Software Craftsmanship Round Table. Maybe we could start it
with lightning talks and do the discussions followed by pub after.
That's what they do.

If you have any other ideas for LSUG, let the community know, I'm
certainly not the only one with ideas and time. :P
