Okay so having started somewhat of a trend of prospective user groups I figure I should write a wiki page about what is planned for the first PLUG on October 27th.

So the format would appear to be pretty straightforward initially...

1) Meet and greet (6:30pm -7:00)

2) Presentations (TBC, see table below)

3) Go to the pub

I have ideas about future workshops and stuff. If people want certain topics covering(regarding the CE stack) then let me know.

Also hopefully down the road we'll be able to secure some special guest speakers if we get a reasonable turn out.
