Yeah. I'm thinking 5:30 until ... whenever we get tired at this stage. I'm going to go and talk to a pub tonight on my way home from work because it is a Wednesday night and I want to get a feel for how busy they would be. If I can't work something out then I'll buy some cans of soft drink and host it in the boardroom of our office here on Murray Street. I didn't particularly want to do that but meh.
For this first session I'm thinking we want our schedule to look something like:
5:30 - 6:00 Meet and Greet, Welcome, News, etc.
6:00 - 6:45 What is ALT.NET
, who are we, and what do we want to get out of an ALT.NET
User Group (topics, session styles, sponsorship?, alignment with other user groups, etc.)
6:45 - 7:30 Discussion: Must-have tools that go on every new machine (bring your favorites, this will be a discussion after all).
I picked a topic that is light enough that anyone could attend and participate with basically no prior knowledge required.
After I have confirmed a venue I'll flick a post here, update the Perth ALT.NET
blog and Mitch has said that he'll let me do a 2 minute stand-up at tomorrow nights Perth .NET CoP.
Speaking of which, if anyone is going to the Perth .NET CoP tomorrow night (I really need to learn some Silverlight) let's catch up for a drink afterwards at 43below (or Bar On Barrack which is what it used to be called).
Getting excited now.
