A summertime NSLUG/HCC backyard social

Joel Maxwell
Administrator
Hope everyone is doing well in spite of the variety of lockdowns,
bubbles, and other forms of isolation.

I hosted an NSLUG social at my house the summer of 2019, and I plan to
re-mix the idea this coming July. It'd be in my backyard to help cover
most chances of contingency plans, during the afternoon of a July
Saturday or Sunday (the 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 24th, or 25th depending
on the weather) while avoiding the long weekends.

More details to follow once the warmer months approach, but sending
this message now to get the idea out well in advance. Only other detail
I'll add for now is that my residence is located in the
Hydrostone/Convoy Place area of Halifax.

Feel free to add some chatter in the lists.

Not particularly. I presume that would happen organically - this
wouldn't (necessarily) be a tech-talk style.

The most technical scenario would be gear set up on makeshift tables
and power breakouts with the respective display brightness cranked up
in lieu of shade - but even that can be too much for natural sunlight.

The "format" would be more like the coffeeshop outings, except
outdoors, ability to spread out over 100 square meters (or so), and
generally an excuse for a social event for those who lacked that for
many months.

I'd imagine there would be talk of projects that received attention due
to more time at home, reactions to computing paradigm shifts (e.g. the
work-from-home model), and bouts of justified paranoia. ūüėĄÔłŹ

That certainly sounds like an entertaining offer! I have been absent from many of the meetings over the past few years due to work commitments, so hopefully I can have some time for a small social.

Best Wishes.

Personally I'd be interested in a summer get together!!!! DEPENDING ON THE COVID SITUATION AT THAT TIME.
