    May 2009 Conference

    Right. With BETT now a week old memory and my voice just returning, it's time to start prepping for the next big thing, the May Conferance. Just a few pointers so far for you though. It will be at Chorley again, we will have it during the May half term break (exact date TBC), I want you all to be in the same hotel again, and I'll set up a coach as before. Not sure about offsetting the hotel rooms as of yet due to some of the larger companies who helped out last time still not playing with us fully.
    I want to have a movie slot in the early evening after the event (I'll see if EduGeek can provide the beer) and it'll be a choice between Office Space and The Pirates of Silicon Valley, if you think it's a good idea. Also an EduGeek merchendise stand with t-shirts, shirts etc to purchase (don't panic, there will be freebies too) as well as the usual raffle.
    Apart from that I've not much else to report, so any suggestions from you as to what you would like to see then please feel free to start suggesting now.

    I'm going to give as much advanced warning of dates as I can to enable those of you who live in the sounth to get cheap train\plane tickets booked (it's on the direct line from Manchester Airport). Trust, me, given advanced notice you can get here and back again first class for less than 100 from almost anywhere by train!

    Looking forward to this already

    A couple of suggestions of what I think might be of interest

    Storage area networks
    System monitoring - cacti / nagios
    Digital Signage
    Virtualisation / Terminal Services

    Sounds great. If I could make it would anyone find a Joomla Package workshop useful?
