> Hi all,
> +1 for English language for a potential Italian User Group.
> I'd like to avoid precluding International visibility to a potential
> Italian User Group, at least at this very early stage.
> You can still have an "Italian" section of it, for people not confident
> enough in expressing their thoughts in English.
> The main reason of an Italian EUG, according to me, wouldn't be to offer
> Erlang support to people speaking Italian. Honestly, I cannot see myself
> (or any of the other Italian Erlangers I know) asking or answering an
> Erlang question in Italian AND in English. That would be pointless and
> time consuming. And I wouldn't leave the International mailing lists and
> groups, because they are just TOO important.
> Binding the group to the local language would just isolate it.
> Lot of support could actually come from foreign sources (UK, Sweden,
> USA) and I would really like this to happen.
> The main reason of having an Italian EUG would be - ON THE CONTRARY - to
> spread knowledge of Erlang in a Country where PEOPLE SIMPLY DON'T KNOW
> So, here's my idea.
> Let's try to organize an International Erlang event in Italy, in a city
> that is well connected to International destinations (Rome sounds the
> perfect candidate so far).
> For the interested ones (I'm in) we could use it as an excuse to have a
> very first physical meeting to discuss details regarding a user group
> (stuff like the statute, legal representatives, etc) and, most
> important, to meet each others.
> What do you think?
