First OLPC-UK Community Meeting on April 8


While a number of very dedicated individuals from the UK are contributing to OLPC and Sugar in various ways the country so far lacked a real community infrastructure. This is about to change very soon as the first ever OLPC UK community meeting was just announced to take place on April 8!

XOs + Beer = Great night!

Here's the agenda from the meeting's wiki page:

  1. Opening
  2. OLPC Update
  3. Introductions - an opportunity for all attendees to introduce themselves and share their thoughts on OLPC involvement
  4. OLPC UK - open forum on what the group believes could be achieved by an OLPC UK organisation
  5. Progress - the UK is lucky to have a number of people already involved in and contributing to the OLPC cause; some of whom will be attending and able to update us on efforts so far
  6. XO Demonstrations - thank you to a large number of you who have advised you will be bringing an XO; it will be excellent for those that don't yet own one to gain a stronger understanding of the technology behind the cause
