Looking for User Groups in the Redmond area….

...or Seattle, or Bellevue, or Kirkland, or just about anywhere I can get to in a couple hours from Redmond. I have not been a registered member of a user group in a LOOOONG time. Now that I am well settled into my new home and area, I think it is time to get more involved. If you are a member of a UG in the area or would be interested in starting one, please let me know!

I am going to be attending a couple of Linux User Group meetings soon. It is also time to start playing with SUSE Linux and get a better feel for it. I have to admit I am a Linux n00b. My experiences with installing a few different distros a few years back were not very pleasant. I just have not had a reason to use Linux for anything personally but I believe now is the time to start getting my hands dirty. I would like to get SUSE up and running on my Laptop since that is what I use the most often.

I would be interested in hearing from you what your experiences are with SUSE and what I should watch out for when I go to install.

    Just an FYI, there is an Exchange User group that meets about once per quarter, Seattle Mind camp that meets twice per year, a few others are dorkbot, WSPTA, seattle wireless, and of course Ignite seattle is tonight….

    Thank you for the great information!  I have presented for the WSPTA before. I had not heard of Ignite before your comment and wish i would have had time to attend (no way the wife was letting me out of Valentines plans to hang with geeks!). I will reach out to the other groups as well.  Thanks again!
