Need to setup carpooling or have other issues? List them here.


Could someone provide transport/lodging suggestions/directions for a carless soul coming from the south? I'd be interested in carpooling if anyone's going by the Santa Barbara area.


Could anyone pick up an individual at the Santa Clara or San Jose Amtrak?

Anyone coming from that direction?

Lightning Talks:

Contact Joel Franusic if you wish to give a Lightning Talk


SuperHappyDevHouse24 LightningTalks




Postmortem Notes


nicely full, good space for a devhouse

populated but not crowded

without the upstairs, number of people were perfect

power and chairs were perfect

lightning talks

- cold, windy, but tent was great

network was awesome (QoS) modulo a few people

- tom: qos could use a little tuning

food: could have used just a little more, quality was decent



joel - not much greeting done, good conversations

- tim fitz will help greet at next devhouse

"a really cool mix of people"

First congressional candidate! neat!


kitt's list for next time should include:

 - mexican coke, diet coke

 - tape and ice


 - more toilet paper!

 - more luncheon sized plates

 - more beer - maybe a keg?


Need Official DevHouse Signage (Joel will make a PDF)


Nobody liked the lights out "Earth hour".

Could do Rockband upstairs next time - people like rockband, but is loud

background ambient music would have been nice

having the piano played was very nice

Miesha - people were a little less messy than usual

(add miesha to devhouse planner list - DONE)




May want kegs next time? 2xpony?

Joel - "prep" page for lightning presenters?

Good presentations are: "i need help with X"

Let's publicise the schedule (timing for dinner, presentations, etc) in advance, if possible.


We should send Tom's Mom to a day spa, but not during the event. ;)


Miesha - the gas stovetop knobs should be taped off for safety.







successively open rooms as we add people

Meeting with Julie of Sun, monday the 7th w/Sun at Rainbow, 7:30pm

Get Guy Steele to come out to DevHouse?

Other old-school hackers we'd like out here: Ian Murdock (Debian), Ken Thompson (@ Google), Larry Wall, Vint Cerf, Donald Knuth, Doug Englebart (he's already come to one!), Guido

We should include Felsenstein in the planning


Joel will make flyers people can post at their work

Sun will take care of food catering for the event

"loud room" and "quiet room"


cluster computing - hadoop on 100 nodes?
