It might be worth promoting to other semi-related local users groups. I
know there's a Dallas PHP user group, which used to be quite large, though I
haven't attended in years. Unix Users groups, etc. Doing a search on
Meetup.com would probably yield good results.
- Google has user groups. Google uses Python.
- OS-based user groups
- there's at least one general "Open Source" type user group in Dallas
I'm sure similar things exist in other cities.
- Contacts at local universities? I live near UTD, though I don't know
anyone there, so if someone can point me in the right direction, I can maybe
talk to someone there or put up flyers or something.
- Co-working facilities? There's a couple of these in Dallas, and a bunch
in Austin IIRC. Mostly techies from what I can tell.
