I would volunteer to run a database server on my laptop and give everybody
their own personal database (for the day).

I think it would be fine at Imaginary Landscape -- mostly I need to 

check if I'll be able to come (or if one of the other guys here can 

come). Pluses: food okay, wired networking (we can set up wireless too, 

but wired backup is nice). Minuses: public transportation isn't great 

(1/2-1 mile walk unless you take the bus, I think). Not really big 

enough or seperate enough spaces for a class and sprints at the same 

time, unless we expand out into other parts of the office.


Thanks Ian!


Can we hold the class in the conference room and the Sprint in the entrance
area... or something in this regards?


With the Django sprint, the biggest concern I see is that people have a 

database set up or somehow available. I remember spending a lot of 

pointless time trying to get databases set up on laptops at the last 

sprint. I wonder if this: http://www.tnr.cc/pypg.html (or this: 

http://barryp.org/software/bpgsql) plus a database available over the 

wire would be helpful? Database access over RPC would also be cool.


I certainly agree we should have some things set up before we start this
time.hmmm, come to think of it i guess there are a lot of ways to approach
this. We needed to throw out some more ideas and come to a census.


I would not object to having everything setup on a remote server and we just
tunnel in. Even the static files could be setup over DAV. This way, not much
is needed to be done on each persons machine. Was this what we tried last
time. What went wrong? i can't recall.
