At our last meeting, we agreed to meet to discuss/demo/share web related technologies at a separate meeting...

We had originally suggested 2pm on January 27 @ Beaner's Central. We do have the upstairs space reserved...

HOWEVER...

Beaner's closes at 5pm on Sunday's.

Should we move to Noon or 1pm? Should we move locations? Should we live within the three hour time constraint?

Comments? Please.

No, it is to be rescheduled and Rich is the lead on setting up a new time.

Just wondering what you guys do when you meet for these?

This meeting in particular will be to help each other learn how to set up and maintain websites, as quite a few of us have websites(or would like to have websites) that need some work.

In general when we meet we drink beer and talk shop, including showing off new equipment and recent prints. We usually have a short agenda discussing subjects such as the status of the DPG bank account and projects that we are working on, both individually and as a group. (Such as in December we had a DPG photography show that included a show opening party.) There are also often cookies involved at our meetings, so don't be shy about bringing some to share! ;-)

We have plenty of young folk in the group too and they are all very cool. :-)

young folk? at what age does one stop being young folk? haha

I would like to come too. Sounds like a great time.
So, would this just be a lecture going over the website building/upkeep, and/or will there be slides or something?
Does everyone bring their camera's or laptops? Im not sure if I would bring mine, i sold my OQO and I really dont feel its a good idea lugging my 17inch monster somewhere that will have beer.
And somewhere it was stated there is a DPG bank account. Are there dues to pay to go to these meeting? if so, how much?
Thanks again everyone!

The meeting was set up around finding a suitable way to get a searchable database of your images onto your website without a template and without paying $$ for it. We are tapping into the IT experts that this group has and seeing what comes of it. It has since expanded some to include other aspects of web development, I do believe. I don't think we can do a website 101 workshop and still get to the goals originally desired.

Yes, any and all laptops are welcome. I will bring my LCD projector, but I don't think that there will be a formal presentation made. It is all very off-the-cuff, at this point.

Sounds good. I was not looking for a website 101, I know enough to build and design a site. I was more just into getting together with people of the like mind. If i hang out with enough photographers, im sure to pick something up ;)

i would definitely come to the next one of these!

My friends and I used to make movies, so I have a site, just not a photo one.

madcowmovies.com

It's been a while since we made a movie, it's all but dead now. But for a good 3 years we had a new movie every few weeks. And the lack of updates/news is due to me updating the layout, then not making any movies ha.

I've been meaning to set up a website. The problem is I'm lazy and don't want to code more than I have to. I made a quick one with iWeb, but UMD's servers don't like UTF-8 text encoding. I do have a server at home though, so I could just buy a domain name and start hosting I suppose. :) seems like effort though
