We had a very successful event in Frankfurt last month, and one of the things that came out of the discussions in the foundation is that we should more events in more cities. This will enable deep community bonds, sharing of ideas and knowledge.
For hosting an event, we need at least some local community and leadership in hosting and evangelising the event and helping with the logistics. We can propose to the foundation to sponsor part of the cost.
One or 2 members from the core developer team will also fly down to attend. I think Singapore, Dubai, Lagos, Bangalore, Pune might be good choices
If you are interested hosting such an event in your city maybe in June, July, August, please reply to this post!
Maybe the teams can also create a chapter in their city or country so that the chapter can help with organising + logistics? in the long run, the foundation can also tap into these Chapters to evangelize for Erpnext in their locality + host their own code camps, sprints and developer trainings.
Lagos is awesome - We also have @wale and @Chude_Osiegbu who can organize this. Let us do this - if all Lagos / Nigeria users can come together and work out the logistics, it wold be great.[quote=“Basawaraj_Savalagi, post:5, topic:22809”]
Anyone else in Bangalore! Please let me know.
Doesn’t necessarily have to be a Google group. But there should be a chapter head/President who’ll be in charge in reporting to and coordinating with the foundation. The chapter can have their own group/slack channel/social media group and an organisational structure that conforms with the foundation. Maybe we can have a meeting for this in the future? Someone might have experience in how Google Developers Group or other organisations handle their local chapters.
