Sponsored by the Atlanta Java Users' Group, DevNexus is coming to town, March 10-12. Though not strictly an Open Source meeting, most of the tools and talks are infused with Open Source. Tickets are reasonable and full-day tutorials happening before the actual conference.
I've created a new menu item above: frameworks. What with Spring, Ember, Node and Meteor, it seemed the thing to do. Have a look.
Atlanta Scala Reboot
From today's mailbag:
Hello Scala enthusiasts!
I am Lance, a local Scala consultant and trainer. I've been joyfully coding Scala for 3 years now and hope to share some of that Scala-joy with you and other folks real soon!
I've taken over as the organizer for the Atlanta Scala meetup group. I'm planning on getting us back on track for at least a regular quarterly meetup starting February to March time frame. If there is enough interest we can step up to 6 week or monthly meetings.
Please let me know if you can help out with any of the following:
1) You have a space for 20+ people we can use for a meetup
2) You want to give a Scala (or functional programming) presentation (beginners welcome!)
3) You have an idea that you would like to see explored in a round table discussion
4) You know anyone from the greater-Scala community who might be interested in giving a talk at one of our meetups
5) You are interested in knowing about Atlanta-area companies that are currently hiring for Scala
6) You are an Atlanta-area company currently hiring for Scala or interested in becoming a sponsor for the group
Thanks and may your day be awesome!
PostgreSQL Group Forming
My favorite open source database might be getting it's own meetup group. From today's inbox:
We are a group of PostgreSQL enthusiasts interested in fostering a PostgreSQL community in Atlanta, so that we can share our knowledge about PostgreSQL and related projects, and create a network for those seeking PostgreSQL-related employment.
See their Meetup.
