Cape Town March 2011
From The Original GeekDinner
When and Where
The 23th Cape Town GeekDinner, which has yet to be named, will be held towards the end of March 2010 . When we have found a venue, we will be able to be more specific about the date.
GeekDinners are community-organised events. We'd love for you to help out with the organising - sign up to and chip in if you can.
For this dinner, we still need:
We want short, interactive talks - a quick overview of a cool idea, or an interesting way of looking at things. We prefer to stay away from the how, and the technical nitty-gritty, and get an idea of the what or maybe the why.
We like to keep the talks short - about five minutes, plus questions. Bring your slides on a USB stick if you have any, we will provide a laptop and a projector.
If you have something you'd like to share, please offer it.
A talk about preparing a presentation for a talk about preparing a presentation for a talk. - Rian van der Merwe
If you'd like to hear about something, let us know.
This is where somebody presents a talk based on slides that they have never seen before, on a topic chosen by somebody else. If you'd like to give it a try, or if you'd like to create the slides for whoever volunteers, sign up.
We will arrange food with the venue, and put the menu up when we have it. We usually get a set meal for about R100.
If you aren't a vegetarian but would prefer the vegetarian menu please update your name on the guest list with a (V)
We usually get a case or two of wine sponsored for us for the evening.
We need AV equipment at the venue. Some venues have this already, but with others we need to supply our own screen, projector and microphone. If you can help out with this, please let us know.
Anyone can attend a GeekDinner, and attendance itself is free. You only pay for your own food and drinks.
There are (usually) 60 places available. Bring your geek friends and loved ones.
Signup will only open once we have secured a venue.
If you want to be reminded when signup does open, sign up to or follow on Twitter.
