  1. My name is Clinton Walker; I am the Young Professionals Group Rep (YPG Representative), committee member and events organiser for this year’s British Computer Society Winter School organiser for Nottingham & Derby branch.
    I am in urgent need/help to get a speaker for the following two topics:
    BRITISH COMPUTER SOCIETY ANNUAL WINTER SCHOOL EVENT
    Each year in October, the Nottingham and Derby Branch of the British Computer Society hold a ” Winter School” – three evening presentations on a single topic or on related topics. This year our theme is supposed to be “Web 2.0”, in as much as we’re trying to get presenters on the following topics:
    Beginner’s , intermediate or advance Guide to Ruby (and/or Ruby on Rails)
    LAMP platform (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl – 4 open source technologies that combine to make web-site development “free”)
    We’ve tended to have the Winter School sessions be a bit longer in order to allow speakers to get more “in-depth”. We usually start at 7 (with coffee from 6.30) and aim to finish around 9pm.
    I’d therefore be grateful if you know of anyone (including yourselves, if you’re up to it!) who can deliver lectures/presentations on the above topics.
    Briefly, the format is usually that there is one lecture on each of the first 3 Mondays in October(i.e. the 1st, 8th and 15th) at the Novotel in Long Eaton, just off J25 of theM1. Usually we start at 7pm and hope to have a presentation of about 90 minutes- so it can hopefully get a little more in-depth and include technical demonstrations, if possible – followed by questions. The aim is to finish at around 9pm, although people tend to hang around and chat for a bit afterwards.
    We don’t usually offer remuneration for this service (branch finances are quite tight, especially this year) although we will cover reasonable travel expenses and one night’s accommodation at the Novotel for presenters coming from outside the area. In the past we’ve also arranged for one or two of the branch committee to stay for dinner with the presenter if they so wish, however it’s the Novotel, so don’t expect it to be anything too fancy!
    Regards,
    Clinton Walker
