BIRT User Group Resources

We plan to update this page in the future with links to materials you can use for your presentations and meetings.

Best Practices

  • Meet consistently
  • Look at community sites for tips (e.g., the Python website has good ideas in their getting started guide)
  • Each user group should have its own website and mailing list
  • Provide beer and giveaways at meetings
  • Have a socializing period as part of the meeting
  • Get speakers to attract attendees
  • Do lightning talks (short “what I’m doing” talks) if enough people are present
  • Ask people directly to help (i.e., don’t ask a group over e-mail for volunteers)
  • Leaders should not take too much control
