The Rational Guide to Building Technical Communities by Dr. Greg Low


I received this book from INETA several years ago and it has been one of the most useful resources on building and growing community I have ever read.  I keep coming back and re-reading it every year, and every time I learn something new.

Dr. Greg Low does an awesome job of giving very sound advise and practical approaches to many issues faced by communities.  Topic covered in the book include why to start a technical community, finding speakers, how to start and grow user groups, recruiting members, how to organize your meeting or conference, and tips for presenters.

There are also two whole chapters dedicated legal and finance, and funding.

If you are a user group leader, or have thought about starting a user group this is a must read. I highly recommend it for anyone that is a leader of a user group or technical community, presents to communities, or just a community member.

If you see me at a conference ask me about this book, you might be surprised at what happens.
