Meeting: Oct 4, Pasadena

Post by FourthWorld » Thu Aug 30, 2012 5:45 pm

The SoCal LiveCode User Group's next meeting will be Thursday, October 4, at 7PM in Pasadena.

A scheduling conflict made the September meeting impractical, and after discussing this with Bill Vlahos we feel that bi-monthly is an easier schedule for us to maintain.

So going forward we'll be meeting on the first Thursday of each even-numbered month, with the next meeting in October, the one after that December, then February, etc.

We may continue to hold the meeting at Burger Continental if the members want to, but we're also open to considering a different venue with larger tables that more easily accommodate all of our laptops.

We'd like your input on the venue question, and on the question of format:

Thus far these meetings have been fairly informal, sometimes with presentations and other times just answering questions and tracing out code, with a lot of good conversation about non-LiveCode stuff along the way.

That's all been good fun, but I'd like to hear your ideas about ways to make these meetings a more valuable part of your LiveCode development world.

So let's take this opportunity between now and October to share what we'd most like to get out of these meetings.

Feel free to raise any and all opinions you may have. This group is about you, and the only way to get what you most want from it is to voice it.

I'll kick this off by noting that for myself, the best moment we've had yet was the brainstorming session at the February meeting which prompted me to write the first draft of the ripData library. That was a great roll-up-your-sleeves moment, in which we all kicked around ideas useful to ourselves and others in the community, and resulting in a code library that promises to be pretty helpful. I really enjoy that sort of real-world problem-solving.

What do you enjoy most about the meetings? What would you like to see more of going forward?

I look forward to a good conversation here leading up to a great meeting in October.

Thanks in advance for your participation -

Yes I agree. I'd also like to have more topics to cover instead of mostly socializing. Burger Continental is one of my favorite places in Pasadena but I think a different location might be more conducive to a discussion and presentation(s).

I'd be happy to talk about lcTaskList which is now in the LiveCode Marketplace as a topic.

I like the even-numbered months schedule.
See you in Oct.

Since no one's chimed in with an opinion about the venue let's hold this meeting at Burger Continental again, and we can discuss at the meeting if we want to consider a different venue for the December meeting:

Burger Continental, back room
535 S. Lake Avenue
Pasadena CA 91101

Richard,
I would like to see a discussion on the RunRev Embedded livecode and its benefits in real world uses.
And consideration for buying this offering.

Rev Embedded is a fairly specialized thing, but I'd be happy to share what I know and to encourage others there to chime in as well.

Looking forward to seeing you there, Clarence -

I would also mention a book that I bought - for us novice users I guess: "LiveCode Mobile Development Beginner's Guide" available on Amazon also.

Clarence-

There's a wealth of information in Colin's book for developers of any experience level.
Colin's done a great job on this and I heartily recommend it to anybody.

Folks,

I am going to give away one copy of DB Lib ( http://andregarzia.com/page/dblib ) and one copy of AAG Tools ( http://andregarzia.com/page/aagtools ) to be used in a raffle during the meeting.

I will send the zipfiles with them to Richard and you guys can choose any random way to come up with two winners, one should receive DB Lib and the other the Tools package.

:mrgreen:

Hope you guys and gals like this!

Cheers, wish I was there
