Welcome to the wiki home of the New England "chapter" of Code4Lib.
My friends, let's get something started, eh?
TBD. Suggest some Topics.
- Should we have a one-day hack-a-thon, or more of a slideware event thing? Whatever facilities we procure could have an effect on this decision in terms of wifi, seating, available projector, etc.
1st Meeting - w00t!
A vote was held to determine our first gathering spot. Boston was chosen. Michael Klein has arranged a space for us at the Boston Public Library.
Jodi Schneider of Amherst College has already begun planning for a gathering hosted by Five Colleges. See below for possible dates.
Suggest some other, future locations below. Something not too hard to get to for folks in all corners of the N.E. area would be best
- Somewhere in Western Mass (a.k.a. 413; a.k.a. Northampton, MA; a.k.a Hamp) - This would work best for me, the further West, the more likely I can make it (ecorrado)
- I can probably offer free space in our Concord NH campus with good network and projectors, though I realize that may be too far north for some --Casey
- Somewhere in the Boston area
- Portland, Maine, of course. Where else? LibraryThing will buy donuts.
- I could suggest New Haven, but it isn't exactly a central location for this group. --dlovins
- +1 for Portland, ME. I might be able to arrange meeting space at the U of Southern Maine if this is a viable location. --jonvw
- Forbes Library during their business hours
- Possibly one of the Five Colleges?
- Boston Public Library (end by 9pm Monday through Thursday, or end by 5pm Friday through Sunday)
- Elsewhere? Add to this list...
