Code4lib Meetups in Edmonton
Purpose: To connect with other code4libbers in the area and start building a code4lib community in Edmonton, Alberta.
The inaugural meetup of Code4Lib North - Edmonton will take place on Thursday, May 9, 2013, 6:00pm at The Underground, 10004 Jasper Ave, Edmonton. This will be a simple meet-and-greet to gauge interest levels for Code4Lib North in Edmonton. Everyone is welcome!
We'll be meeting again on Thursday, June 13. We've tentatively decided on going to the Underground again, but this may change (I'll post an update here if it does). This meeting will hopefully build on some of the ideas we had at our first meeting, and we can make the first steps towards organizing an activity of some kind.
Third Meetup and Lightning Talk Planning Session
We're planning a lightning talk evening some time in November, so we should get together to plan it. We're going to meet at The Empress Ale House, 9912 82 Avenue, at 6 pm on Thursday, October 3rd. Hopefully we'll be able to knock out the basic planning for the lightning talk evening at this session.
Lightning Talk evening planned
Our first event - an evening of lightning talks and a tour of the new Edmonton Public Library makerspace - is scheduled for November 21st. More details to follow.
