Opera User Group meetups in Seattle and Minnesota

August 11, 2006

Following our very first, and successful, Opera User Group meet up in the Baltimore area, we have two more to announce.

Seattle, Washington
A few Opera developers, including “Mitchman”, Anne van Kesteren (very active with standards), David Storey (Chief Web Opener at Opera), and the famous “Olli” will be visiting the Seattle area next week. I thought it would be nice if we can start a Seattle Opera User Group and have them attend the first meet up.

Thanks to Anne Lee, a Seattle-local, this became possible. The first meeting will take place next Friday night (August 18, 2006) between 6PM and 8PM at the Seattle Center (near the Seattle Space Needle) by the food court area. Be on the lookout for Opera t-shirts or other Opera posters. (Directions here)

Bring your computer if you’d like; there will be free Wi-Fi internet service at the food court.

We’re still looking for a local group leader to organize future group meetings in Seattle. If you’re interested either contact Anne or myself.

Twin Cities, Minnesota
Eddie Lopez, who runs the Usability blog, is organizing an Opera User Group in the Twin Cities – Minnesota area.

Take a look at his MOUG (Minnesota Opera User Group) homepage for more details. If you’re in the area and are interested joining, let him know by posting a comment to his blog post.

    Interested in accessibility? Getting a different perspective on browsing? …or at least getting the most out of your browser?

    Interested in Accessibility? ..perhaps a different perspective on web browsing? Perhaps just wanting to get the most (efficiency) out of your browser? Visit the MN OUG for more information on how!
