Two "not quite the droid you're looking for" ideas:

1. http://www.apcug.net/

Hey, David, looks like you're in range of this:http://ldc.apcug.org/

2. Science-fiction fandom is not exactly the same as software geekdom
(PenguiCon notwithstanding), BUT when I asked this question, I was advised
to look into SMOFcon - the Secret Masters Of Fandom, a sort of meta-group
for SF geeks.  amk had also been to a SMOFcon years ago, for just this

So I planned to go to their conference in Ohio... then got miserably sick
that weekend.  Oh well.

Next one's in Texas in December.  If any of you happen to be nearby, go for
it and report back!
