GNIGHTS of GNOME Hackfest Report

We had our first GNIGHTS of GNOME hackfest last Saturday at Pumping Station: One here in Chicago. We had around ten newcomers who came to the hackfest. People had various levels of interest and experience: there were a few professional developers and several students. I've been following up with some of our attendees and helping them get JHBuild environments set up, helping to direct them to projects within GNOME that they are interested in, etc. We are planning to meet once a month going forward, and I think we are off to a good start in building the community around GNOME here in Chicago. Thanks to everyone who came! If you are interested in coming to a future meeting, we will be posting updates on the new Chicago GNU/LUG site. See you next time.
