Had a great Atlanta OpenSolaris User Group meeting this month. We did an installfest, an update from CommunityOne, and a recap of what's new in OpenSolaris 2009.06. About twenty folks showed up and about half loaded their laptops with the new build while we were there.
We got some great feedback for upcoming topics and are pushing forward with that. We also decided to move back to monthly meetings starting in August. Our next meeting is August 11 when we will talk about COMSTAR. We are also considering a change in venue back to the Sun office in Alpharetta. Matrix Resources has been very gracious in allowing us to use their facility, but I always feel bad that they have to have someone stick around until late at night to babysit us.
We're going to try an experiment to see if we can't get the word out a little better about our merry band via social networks. We've started by creating a Meetup group at http://meetup.com/atlosug. Hopefully this might generate more traffic to our meetings and help us find folks in the area.
