Hey everyone, the GTUG Addis crew has been a little busy the past few weeks and escaped few meetings. We are back with more plans and heart. First thing to announce is that GTUG will be focusing on lab-like sessions where people will have to participate in the discussions at hand. Topic agendas will be provided online so you can review and come with discussion points and questions. Second, we will have project to work on so people from different lines of experiences can contribute to good products, we are thinking of mainly software products and mobile apps, but if you have other suggestions please throw them at us. Last but not least, we are working towards creating a lab environment where technology enthusiasts can hack there way. So keep looking at our pages for upcoming discussions notifications, and dont be shy to share your thoughts, after all this is your group
The first GTUG-Addis meeting had three main targets.
Consistent meeting hours – first Saturday of every month from 2:00PM onwards
Consistent meeting place – Good news in this area , iHub has offered us a space in the Lideta Building College – a space to do presentations and do regular meetings
It has been decided what the general sense of the upcoming meetings would be like
Please feel free to comment on any of these ideas. It would be great to have the opinion of may of our members on the directions of the group
