I've set up to be at CPOSC again this year, and have sent out a couple of emails, but have been so far behind due to work and school, that I haven't had a chance to post it here or on our website, or the wiki, but here it is. The Central PA Open Source Conference is back again (3rd Annual) at Harrisburg University. Below are the details, there are still tickets available, and once again, I am asking for help (both financial and feet on the ground). It's going to cost us $100, and I think this is a really valuable venue for promoting Ubuntu and the Pennsylvania LoCo Team. Last year we really had fun and met a lot of very friendly people.
I'll post a paypal link on my blog and on the team website to raise the money. I already have $25 dollars donated, and any other amounts would be appreciate. I will cover whatever we don't raise.
I have ordered a conference pack which should arrive by Friday, which will give us some nice loot to distribute. And I hope to see quite a few teammates there. INCLUDING Brian Stempin and Chris Teodorski who will be giving talks (congratulations guys!). Last year Lyz presented and made us proud, so this shows how our members are on the cutting edge of open source in Pennsylvania!
Anyone wanting to get together afterward or before, shoot me an email at freelancer317 AT gmail Dot com Last year we got together at ABC (Appalachian Brewing Company a local brewpub/restaurant) afterwards and had a great time (and pretty good beer for the beer drinkers).
I really look forward to meeting as many of you as possible!
Here's the link and information on the event:
