We're planning 2 meetups for June.
Following some discussion at our last meetup, we are planning to hold alternate meetups where we hold a session for members who are new to the force.com platform followed by another where we discuss more advanced topics.
We're proposing Wednesday June 12th for our first 'Introduction to Force.com development' evening. This is geared towards anyone who wants to enter the exciting world of Force.com development and we're going to try to start you off!
I have set the Clarion as our venue - but nothing is booked right now. We're open to suggestions for a venue so let us know what you think and let us know of any other possible venues.
We've also had a request to stream our meetups primarily for other groups. This could also be a great help for irish salesforce developers who cannot get to Dublin to join in our meetups.
Updates WILL be posted here this week as we need to finalise this meetup by the end of the week.
Morgan Hotel (Temple Bar) will offer us a room cheaper than the Clarion. The only drawback here is that they cannot offer us a classroom style = theatre style only. This may make it difficult for attendees starting off on the platform to use their laptops to follow along with the planned session. What do people think?
#1 We're switching venues to the Morgan Hotel on Fleet Street as it's cheaper and it'd be good to try somewhere else.
#2 A group of members have expressed an interest in presenting/running sessions but it's hard to do that when the group doesn't have a calendar of dates. So, at the next 2 meetups we'll be looking for volunteers and dates so we can finalise these at the second June meetup.
#3 There will be tea/coffee and sandwiches provided when we start the meetup this evening. There is no cost for the meetup. Bring your laptops!!
We are going to attempt to stream the first part of this meetup via gotomeeting. This may not work properly - but we'll give it a go. So, if you want to look in on the initial presentation (most of the session will be a workshop - which we won't be streaming) hpefully you can see what we are going to be doing.
