Excerpt

User groups are a vital part of the open source community. Learn more about how to start a group, keep it going, and make an existing group better from a panel of experienced user group organizers.

Description

User groups are a vital part of the open source way. Their regular meetings create local communities of practitioners that meet together to learn, share and have fun.

A group of experienced user group organizers will answer your questions and offer practical advice on starting a group, encouraging participation, branching out into activities like hackfests, and handling problems as they crop up.

Attendees will have the opportunity to get practical knowledge from a variety of user group leaders’ perspectives, and leave the session empowered to start their own user group or reinvigorate an existing one.
