I want to update you about some exciting changes happening in our
Database Meetup group. First, Oliver Kennedy and I are stepping in
to help me with some of the tasks associated with managing the group.
We have created a 2016 Survey
which asks about what you'd like to see in the group over the next
year. We'd also appreciate knowing your preference for meeting
night. (There are a couple people who are interested in the group
but cannot do Thursday nights, but we don't want to make a change
that will lose anyone.) This survey will be available through the
first week of August, but the sooner we get your feedback the
better. Please fill it out if you are at all interested.
While most things will stay the same, including our affiliation with
Buffalo Lab, we've been looking for opportunities to change the
communication paths so that all of our organizers have the ability
to reach all of you, and nobody is left out of important
communications (such as weather cancellations). To that end we have
created the @BuffaloData twitter account
<https://twitter.com/BuffaloData> and the @BuffaloData Google group
<https://groups.google.com/forum/#%21forum/buffalodata>. Once most
of the existing group has made this transition we will announce the
discontinuation of emails (you will still receive the meetup.com
<http://meetup.com> notices). For weather notices we recommend you
follow the Twitter account specifically since the forum posts are
easy to overlook.
When there are important announcements we will post to both of these
locations to ensure we reach the widest possible audience. The
@BuffaloData Google Group is also meant to be a discussion forum. We
encourage you to bring your questions and knowledge to the group; as
well as any suggestions for things we could try in the future. We
will send you an invite from this group in a couple days; we hope
you'll be willing to join us.
Buffalo will be home to the CodeDaze.io
<http://CodeDaze.io> conference on September 15th-16th. This
provides a unique opportunity for both us and conference attendees,
so we have scheduled the September meetup for Wednesday, September
14th starting at 6:30PM. The talk will be given by Glenn Gordon and
will revolve around Internet of Things, Application Development for
Web Delivery and Microsoft SQL Server Optimization.
There will be a social with food and drink before and after the
talk. This meetup will take place at the Offices of Stark & Wayne a
short drive from UB Amherst at 10 John James Audubon Pkwy (shares a
building with National Fire Adjustment Company, Inc.)
If you have any questions or concerns please just let us know.
