Apologies in advance if this is not the proper venue for this post--
1. Any interest in a mini-meetup at the Welcome Reception or at another time during the conference like Iron Viz? I know we already mix and mingle at BTUG meetings, but I'm just throwing it out there.
2. Is anyone planning to leave the conference early?
I am trying to snag an extra pass to "Data Night Out". If you're flying out early and won't need your badge, I would really appreciate a benevolent handoff and will come retrieve it from you before you leave. (I am willing to offer a very modest amount of money in compensation if it provides the extra motivation to take the extra step, but I must emphasize modest, as I am paying for the conference out of pocket as it is.)
3. Tips for newbies?
I am taking the Desktop 201 course on Monday so I can't attend the "Newbies" session, but any tips or guidance you have based on prior attendance would be lovely.
Great idea! For anyone interested, how about we meet at 5:30PM during the welcome reception at the Lavastorm booth? Also, I'll try to be tweeting #BTUG during the conference for ad hoc meet ups. You can follow me at @achamberas.
