    Lightbulb 2010 Community Gathering...

    At last years community gathering in Barcelona (which was awesome) we talked about having the 2010 event in either Vienna or Lisbon.

    Time to get a thread going on the topic. We need to figure out the when, where and who...

    I have created a wiki page to keep track of decisions: http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/COM/...thering+-+2010

    I'll be there again! From discussions we had last year, I think people felt either before or just after the summer break..?

    If you would force me now, to make a decision about coming over next year... I would be inclined to participate

    Wien and Lisboa are both nice cities I haven't visited yet so either is fine :-)

    In Germany, after the summer break is defined as after August :-)

    Thus I would suggest September (even when this imagines a long, long time warp...)

    I'll be there whereever and whenever it will be!

    Cheers,
    Jens

    Anything in September besides the 18th is fine for me.
    I wouldn't do the first weekend because it's the first school week for a lot of moms and dads.
    For me as such I would prefer the weekend of the 26th.

    Was it genuinely Vienna that was suggested? Not Verona?

    Confused; But anywhere is fine for me

    Hello,

    Last weekend of September sounds good to me and I hope to make it to the Community Gathering this year.

    I prefer Vienna but Lisbon would be great, too.

    Greetings,
    Ingo

    Last weekend of September sounds good to me; both Vienna and Lisbon are fine, but since I've never been to the latter my vote goes to Lisbon.

    There has got to be an angle here to require a representative from Pentaho PM to participate...

    If you have ideas to help me build a case, let me know

    Hi All!

    I very much would like to attend. Lisbon, Vienna are both great, and I don't have any preference.

    Last weekend of september sounds great!

    (PS Did anybody enjoy the quiz show last year? Is it worth repeating? Be honest.)
    kind regards,

    • Pentaho build system : How it works and how to extend it to fit consultancy needs.
    • Pentaho release practices : How to keep up to speed and well informed through the communication channels.
    • Pentaho core libraries : How could the Pentaho dev team help it's community start spin offs more easily.

    If that's not enough, I can find more

    Exclamation Vienna

    I'm very much for Vienna myself as I live there. Perhaps I can help with organizing, etc. Also, I have many contacts to hotels.

    Please note that Vienna is a very popular city for international conferences. Especially at the end of September, all hotels in the entire city might be full or nearly full, with the usual effect on rates. So that may be a bad time unless you book your hotel rooms months in advance.

    September 19 - 23 is Java ONE. Better not make the Pentaho gathering too close.

    Late september is fine for me. I would vote for Lisbon, but Vienna is also OK for me.

    as far as you know? you're not organising it this year?

    Is there a preferred hotel yet? Flights are pretty cheap at the moment..

    I have delegated my responsibilities to ITXpander and Pedro, but they just send me a cut of the profits
