Solaris Users Groups?
By csj on jan. 18, 2005
I have an idea to start a Solaris Users Group in Budapest. There are probably dozens of such clubs around the world, so please share with me any thoughts that slip into your mind
I'm thinking on:
- having a regular monthly meeting with presentations on deeper technical subjects (zero marketing slides)
- holding an "installfest" of Solaris 10 for notebooks and PCs (Solaris 10 is free, remember?)
- pizza and beer party afterwards
The guys at www.sunfreeware.hu seem to like the idea. I still have some connections in the dormitory I used to live at before graduation, so getting a larger room to accomodate a few dozen people should be easy (I've helped setting up a Sun ONE student center there two years ago, and we're sponsoring the Karoly Simonyi Specialty Dormitory (named after ex-Microsoft Charles Simonyi's father) with Sun equipments and software licenses).
I hope to have more details by next week
BTW: does the word "specialty dormitory" exist in English? What do you call a self-study group that specilizes in certain subject and has strict rules and structure? I've tried searching for a term that could describe the Hungarian word Szakkollegium (meaning special + dormitory) but found none...
