Meetings

Stefan Lesicnik Newbie

Hey guys,

 

Does this group meet? Where is everyone based?  I am in Johannesburg and would like to get more involved with the Jboss community stuff. From a company perspective (LSD) are Jboss advanced partners with Red Hat and we're looking to build up awareness and skill internally and out there.

 

So I would be happy to see if I can get some sponsorship and try raise the awareness about Jboss.

    Hi Stefan,

     

    The group is still at its infancy, but I think the idea of meeting over coffee to chart a way forward is a good one.

    As for me, I work with Mobicents JAIN SLEE -  Open Source Communications Platform by Redhat.

     

    Let's see how we can move forward and grow the group.

    Hi Stefan,

     

    Thank you for your inquiry. This group still exist and it is in its infancy although, it about 1 year old now. I will be happy and I am sure some of our member will be as well if we can find sometime to hook in order to channel a way forward for progress from here as to how we can become a large group within and outside South Africa. Please lets know what your ideas are.

     

    Regards

    Hi Stefan,

     

    I'm based in Grahamstown and joined last year initially. Like Ishmael and Olalekan, I'm also into JBOSS technologies due to integration with Mobicents realtime communications platform. I'm open to suggestions regarding hooking up and chatting about JBOSS and what people are using it for.

     

    Cheers,

    As a start, we could have an online "Skype/GTalk" meeting like we did last time and perhaps throw some ideas around?

    I am guessing that Stefan is based in Johannesburg - but Mos is some kilometers away, it will make sense then to have an online meeting for an hour or shorter - it does not have to be audio - we can do group chat of sorts.

     

    Cheers,

    +1 vote for Skype chat we could do group chats once we actually know each other and have some traction and can discuss specific things

     

    Cheers,

    Hi Stefan,

     

    I am not sure if I will be attending the SFD event. Olalekan, do you think you can make it to the SFD on the set date? We might have a brief meet-up as Stefan suggests during the SFD.

     

    Could we set a tentative date for the Skype meeting so that we can all confirm availability?

     

    Cheers,

    Hi,

     

    During the week next week is looking a bit sketchy after Wednesday, unless if you guys are keen for a chat this weekend?

    Hi all,

     

    Mos, my weekend does not look pretty at all, and I am not sure if Olalekan can at least join in as he is currently in Cape Town.

    Stefan, do you have some indications of when it might be a good time for a conference call via skype? Let's see when most of us can make it.

    I am sure we can meet beyond offfice hours as well...

    Hi All,

     

    Sorry for my late response. I have been attending a tense training in Cape Town. However, anytime is fine for me to skype (It doesnt have to be weekened alone. I think we can also meet after hours during the day. May be sometimes in the night as we may agreed).

     

    Also, I will try my best to be at the SFD on the 17th of Sept. Stefan we can hook up on that day. But I still think we all need to meet and as agreed probably via skype. But physical meetings will be imminent very soon.

     

    Regards

    Sorry guys, I have been busy lately. If possible can we have a skype meeting sometimes next week. Anyone please suggest a suitable time. I was at the SFD on Saturday but unfortunately I could not see you stefan as I had to rush out of the place later. Anyday is fine for me for the skype call, except wednesday between 2p.m and 4p.m
