WordCamp NY BP get together – Who's In?


  • Mike Pratt
    Participant

    @mikepratt

    Many of us (me included) will be attending WordCamp NY http://2009.newyork.wordcamp.org/ on Nov 14-15. Andy has quite a slate lined up for the BP track and I am looking forward to a w/e of BuddyPress.

    Please comment if you’re going and would be interested in either an “unconference” (mini meetup within the conf to discuss stuff OR Drinks OR even a dinner if we can all swing it schedule-wise. This thread is to gauge interest.

    If enough show interest then we’ll switch to a more formal meetup tool. Send me a message if you’re motivated to help. Thanks,

    Mike

  • I’ll be there and interested to hear people’s ideas. If there ends up being a spare slot on the track on Saturday we could even use that for an open discussion. Drinks will happen Saturday night regardless.

    Andrea & I will be there and we think a get together is a great idea as part of the MU/BP track.

    The (tentative) schedule’s up too:

    Can’t wait to see you all in person. :) Hey Andy, I didn’t get my hug last time… :D

    I will buy a round (at a minimum)

    Count me in for some sort of get together. I’ll hold off on offering to buy a round until I know how many people are going to show up though – beer is expensive in NYC!

    Unfortunately, I cannot make it. But, if someone brings their Mac to the bar, I will have a drink with you via iChat!

    Yeah, I know that will not happen. Have fun!

    I’m interested in a meetup or dinner or whatever.

    Count me, and my husband Chris, in for sure. Andy – an open discussion would be fantastic, but agreed that drinks are necessary. Looking forward to meeting everyone in NY!

    Excellent guys. I will keep track of names and help move this forward. Even as an attendee , I am hoping it will be taped. I am already forced to choose between Lisa’s talk and Andrea’s 1st session (Andrea is strong arming me but I think I’ll do Lisa’s then head to Andrea’s 2nd :-)

    @lisasabinwilson

    Have to say, I was bummed to see the scheduling conflict w/ Andrea and I – – I did not want to miss her panel. :( Hopefully some kind soul will tape it (hint hint)

    I’m also doing a BP Workshop on Sunday — kind of a hands on install-to-launch in steps .. maybe I can convince someone here to help me co-run it to help field questions? :) Sunday looks like it’s shaping up to be an “Unconference” day with lots of opportunity for open discussion, networking and workshops. Fun stuff!

    @mikepratt

    Lisa – I will help out in any way I can.

    Yeah Lisa I wanted to see your session too. And I think it would be hard to make users pick. :-/

    But! Overall, I see fun times ahead.

    @wpmuguru

    I’m hoping all the sessions get recorded so we can watch the ones we wanted to see and can’t due to schedule conflicts.

    We probably should decide between day & evening.

    I won’t be at Wordcamp NY, too many other conferences and deadlines, but I’d certainly attend a Buddypress meetup.

    I organize monthly networking events for web startups in New York, under the name Web2NewYork – a Buddypress site of course. ;-)

    Keep me posted!

    I’ll definitely be up for a meetup. Can’t wait to meet everyone and attend some great presentations.

    I’d love to be there for a BuddyPress meetup. I’m sort of a lurker but I’m making an effort to hook into the community! I’ll only be in for the daytime, though, since I’m commuting in from the ‘burbs.


    Mike Pratt
    Participant

    @mikepratt

    Daisy – You will most appreciate the Sunday workshop that Lisa and I will be trying to coordinate then. (Being a former ‘burb commuter, I hope you’ll consider making a long day of it and join all of us geeks at a watering hole afterwards)

    Third time trying to post. Trying the logout/login work-around posted by Andy. Guess cookies?

    I am new to this forum and to MU/BP but not to wordpress. I am flying into NYC from Fort Lauderdale on my way to Calgary, and so even though I am on a tight schedule, I would love to meetup with MU/BP developers as my next several ventures are set to explore using MU/BP extensively, developing multiple themes and plugins.

    I arrive at LGA at 8:45 so I will be rolling in late, but if my cameras arrive on time I would be happy to document 1 or more sessions (as requested on this thread). Has anyone volunteered for this yet? If so/not, lets co-ordinate priorities for recording, and who is willing and able.

    Lastly, since I am arriving the day-of, I will have my luggage with me. Does anyone know if the venue has a place for me to keep a few bags until the end of the first day?

    Really looking forward to meeting all these bright minds working towards solutions on common problems.

    I’ll be there. I fly in to LGA from Miami at 3pm Friday, and leave on Sunday at 9pm. Tried to give myself as much time to linger around as I could.

    @mikepratt

    OK. New development. Join this BP.org group -> https://buddypress.org/groups/wordcamp-ny if you are attending or care about WCNY. I will coordinate stuff from there to the extent I can. Bummer i couldn’t upload a nifty WCNY avatar (Andy – feel free :-)

    T-minus 2 days :D

    @johnjamesjacoby

    My flight is delayed 2 hours into LGA so I won’t get to the hotel until probably 7pm tonight or so. :(
