SLUUG Steering Committee - Planning Schedule

Information about the planned and known state of SLUUG meeting topics and locations should be made available here.

NOTE: Items posted on the wiki are always unofficial.

Schedules for upcoming tutorials and presentations are always tentative. (Some more tentative than others!)

These lists were used during Steering Committee meetings, when planning presentations. A version of these lists was posted to our DISCUSS mailing list on 25 May 2009, asking for volunteers.

Potential Tutorials, Topics and Speakers

Potential BASE Tutorial Ideas

A short period (30 to 45 minutes) prior to each main presentation at the SLUUG general meetings is dedicated to basic subjects. These tutorial sessions often are more hands on and less formal in nature. They are mostly targeted at newbies, although everyone attending usually learns something. Sometimes the focus can be on a single unique command, application feature, concept or technique. Live demonstrations of new hardware or specific application software are welcomed.

In general, the tutorial subject should differ from the theme of the main presentation topic. We can repeat these tutorials every few years, as not too much changes with the basics. Different presenters often provide different information and fresh perspectives.

As of 2020-02-09 all listed potential tutorial ideas were moved to the Planning Schedule database.

Potential MAIN Topic Ideas

These are some topics that we've had requested, or brainstormed, but for which we need to find speakers. They would likely require more time than the basic tutorial sessions.

As of 2020-02-09 all listed potential tutorial ideas were moved to the Planning Schedule database.

Potential Speakers

As of 2020-05-28 all listed potential speakers and their topics were moved to the Planning Schedule database.

Planning Schedule Database

Trying to integrate the dynamically changing wiki list of potential tutorials, topics and speakers into the monthly STEERCOM agenda and minutes proved cumbersome. Moving the information into a LibreOffice BASE database allowed faster generation of a schedule that can track everything better. Sharing a Planning Schedule Report during STEERCOM meetings is easier and faster than trying to update the minutes to show overwhelming data.

Planning Schedule Report

Built from LibreOffice (LO) planning.odb

The complete database includes many past and future meeting dates and can be used to plan meetings, topics and other events. Note that Status descriptions have not been finalized (a work in progress). Currently maintained and uploaded by Stan R., with the latest copy in his home directory on BOCK.

Sorted by When (Date), Type, Status
