We had our first Open Source University Meetup today in the Iowa Memorial Union's River Room. It was great: we choose OSUM officers, getting a President (myself), Vice-President (Mike), and Secretary (John). We also decided to have our next meetup on December 13th, hopefully in the same place, at 10am.
We talked about how to access the Sun Academic Initiative Learning Connection to get free training and discounted certification, and we decided on 5 goals for the group. (I'll try to post full details on the iowa osum website). One of our goals is to have each member complete an SAI learning module each month (decided by the group), sort of like a book group chooses a book to read each month. Then we'll be able to discuss at each meeting.
Thanks to all attending, and I hope to see even more folks next weekend!
