So You Want to Start a User Group?

Location: E145 Level: Novice

The duo behind “Running a Successful User Group” are hosting a round-table for people who run user groups or want to run a user group. They’ll answer questions like, “What do I do when my speaker doesn’t show up?” and “How do I convince people to come to my meeting about the price of tofu in China?” Come with questions, and meet people trying to do the same thing as you.

We’ll get down to the nitty-gritty of operating a user group, expanding upon material covered in the session, and drawing on the collective experience of BoF’ers.
