Russ Danner, who works at the Christian Science Monitor, is organizing an Alfresco Meet-up in Boston. I’ll be speaking on Alfresco as a platform for application development.
If you are in the area it sounds like several people are planning on attending so it should be a good opportunity to find out what everyone else is doing with Alfresco. The Christian Science Monitor has been using Alfresco (and open source portal, Liferay) for quite a while.
Below is the post Russ sent out to the CMPros list.
The Christian Science Monitor would like to invite you to attend an Alfresco Enterprise Content Management Meet-up in Boston:
Time: 11am â€“ 3pm (Lunch provided with RSVP)
Place: 200 Massachusetts Ave
The First Church of Christ, Scientist
Boston, MA 02115
Parking: Available on site $5.00
To Attend: Please send RSVP to dannerr at csps dot com.
Over the last year the interest and community around the Alfresco product has really begun to blossom. Those of us working with and evaluating Alfresco in the Boston / New England area are very fortunate in that there are quite a number of customers, community members, employees and service integrators at very close proximity to one another. Some of the greatest benefits to innovation found in open source software stem directly from the community that supports it. Our local community is rich in talent, mindshare, and passion â€“ letâ€™s capitalize on this! While we expect most in attendance will be local, all are welcome to attend (Please forward this on to others.)
The Christian Science Monitor would like to invite you to join us and others in the community for an Alfresco meet-up. This meeting will be an informal opportunity to meet one another, discuss our projects and progress and learn more about Alfresco and our community. We will have a few (non-sales) presentations and ample opportunity for attendees to get to know one another.
1st Presentation (30 minutes)
(Rivet Logic â€“ Overview of Alfresco Architecture)
Lunch (45 minutes – no presentations)
2nd Presentation (30 minutes)

3rd Presentation (30 minutes)
(Optaros â€“ Leveraging Alfresco as a Platform for ECM/Development)
Round table discussion (45 minutes)
