Tucson Linux Meet-Up

Two of us drove from Sierra Vista to attend the initial meeting of the Tucson Linux Meet-Up. The meeting took place at the Summit Hut, 5251 E. Speedway Blvd, Tucson from 6-7:30pm. There were 11 attendees. After an introduction of all those present to include their backgrounds there was a discussion on the direction(s) that the group should take to meet the members needs and desires. The concept of presentations to the group was well received and several attendees volunteered to give them. The subject of installfests was raised which was also well received provided that after installation there was a method created for follow up should the individual have additional questions or should problems rear their ugly head.
We provided them with POCs for AZLOCO and the CLUG in Sierra Vista as well as information for receiving support for installfests and Linux workshops. Information on the other two Linux groups in Tucson was submitted to them as well should they decide to coordinate their efforts.
