• EduGeek Conf 2010- 2nd June, Chorley

    Well, the room is booked and we have speakers now queuing up, so whos coming. I've initially booked for 60 people, but can go alot higher if required. The hotel arrangements will be the same with the Ibis hotel in Preston being the base and a coach will pick you up and take you to the conf in the morning and drop you back at the hotel later, and the usual freebies will be there as well as some special EduGeek 2010 t-shirts and clothing on sale.
    One idea I've had after meeting the Aruba guys earlier in the month is to have a Ruckus-Aruba 'shoot out'. So if you have a laptop please bring it and we shall see just what bandwidth we can squeeze out of one access point!!
    So who's coming then?

    P.S. For those new members here I forgot to add that the conf is free to attend as we pick up all the bills. All you have to do is get yourself here, but please note that it costs us around £35 per head, so there is no dropping out at the last minute unless you want a bill!

      It is a maybe x 3 for us, we will have to check though.

      Is there a deal for those who have to stay overnight in the Ibis? It's a long way from Sunny Devon.....

      I think the issue of location has come up before, I think that having meetings in other parts of the country or moving the conference round the country so that everyone has a chance to attend at some point would be a good idea.
      If time is an issue I am sure that there are more than enough willing people around the country willing to help organise.
      There are going to be some more Tech Events in the East Midlands in June/July ... as soon as stuff is confirmed it will go on EG.
