For US and European readers, there may soon be some meet-up events for those interested in Phoronix, the Phoronix Test Suite, and OpenBenchmarking.org.

This coming week I'll be in San Francisco and the Bay Area for the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit. Matthew Tippett and I will be speaking about benchmarking during the LLVM talk on Thursday morning. A few days ago I mentioned on the Phoronix Test Suite mailing list the possibility of a PTS meet-up in the valley. Though due to the last minute organization, both Matthew and I being fairly busy in recent days/weeks, nothing major will probably happen. But if there's anyone using the Phoronix Test Suite within their organization and would like to meet-up to discuss new features, ideas, or provide any other feedback on this open-source software, something between Tuesday and Friday can be arranged.

Following that, from 28 April to 2 May I'll be back in Munich. A meet-up at Augustiner-Keller or Augustiner-Großgaststätten (now that the weather is getting better, a visit to the Andechs Monastery and/or Hirschgarten may be in order) can be arranged with other Phoronix readers.

On the evening of 2 May, there is a Nürnberg meet-up. Several Novell/SuSE developers (namely the X.Org developers) and I will be out at one of the local beer halls or gardens. From 3 May to 6 May it's on to Frankfurt.

For the Ubuntu Developers' Summit it's onto Budapest from 7 May to the morning of 13 May. From 13 May to 16 May it's back to Berlin for LinuxTag.

Contact me (information at MichaelLarabel.com) or via @MichaelLarabel on Twitter (locations of where I plan to be each day will be tweeted there or for anyone trying to lobby another location for a meet-up) if interested in a Phoronix meet-up during any of these times/locations. Even if you're a vendor using the Phoronix Test Suite (or even just a really Linux-friendly company), I'd be happy to stop by to hear your feedback.

There's also just five and a half months left until the annual Phoronix meet-up at Oktoberfest. Just prior to that should be the X.Org Developers' Conference in Chicago. This is being planned for immediately before or after the Linux Plumbers' Conference, but I'm still working out a Chicago venue for the event.
