Forum OpenACS Q&A: Boston area OpenACS users' meeting, Friday March 11 at Sloan
Important If you're planning to attend could you please post your name below or send me email, so we can get an accurate head count.
The goal is to give folks a chance to talk about the projects they're working on, and how they're using the various modules.
As for the coverage, I sent out a bunch of emails and am still collecting responses. Confirmed presenters include:
Dave Bauer -- Dynamic typing, rapid development tools
Tracy Adams -- Coachville
Carl Blesius -- Assessment/Registration
Andrew Grumet -- RSS in OpenACS
If you're going to be in for the meeting and want to present, or see something presented, post here or send me email. Presentations can be about pretty much anything OpenACS-related and shouldn't be much longer than an hour.
The audience will be other OpenACS developers. I'm wondering if we should start the day with introductory session. It boils down to how many newcomes we'd be able to attract on such short notice.
More information to follow as we get closer to Friday.

I will show the new dynamic-types package and the rapid development stuff I built on top of it.
I also would be able to show the work I did with RSS and Search for greenpeace and their cyberactivism toolkit based on Jeff Davis' original work.
could you make that stuff somehow available? Any chance that this get's recorded?
We use camtasia to record what ever the speaker is saying and showing on his computer. Maybe there is something like that for mac or linux.
Nima, I'll look into webcasting, but at a minimum we'll plan to have someone logging the meeting on IRC.
Now the task is to fill in the grid. If you'd like to present something, please claim a time and either edit the initial post yourself if you have permission, or post or contact me.
How to build binaries of them. What assumptions have been made in the current set of RPMs. How to setup a yum repository of binaries created from the source RPMs. And have a discussion of areas of improvement. How the community can maintain the set. To name a few topics.
