Torn Between Groups

Recently I posted about the WA Mobility User Group and their June meeting scheduled for this monday (11th June):

WAMUG – June Meeting

Presenter:   Paul Malyniak, State Manager – 3 Mobile
Date/Time:  5:30pm to 7:00pm on Monday, June 11, 2007
Venue:        Fujitsu Australia Ltd, Level 15, 191 St Georges Terrace

Featuring Paul Malyniak, Western Australian State Manager of 3 Mobile, who will discuss and demonstrate the latest in mobile technologies with a look at 3 Mobile’s business plans and data cards/services.

Unfortunately I just noticed that the next meeting of the Software Engineering Forum is also on tomorrow evening:

Software Engineering Forum

Topic:          Issue Tracking
Leader:       Andy Dent
Date/Time:  Monday 11 June 2007  at 5.30 pm
Venue:        Lecture Room, Engineers Australia, 712 Murray Street, West Perth

Andy Dent will lead a discussion of issue tracking systems, with examples of current open-source systems. His particular interest is in the usability of such systems and how it affects the willingness of people to adopt them, ability to expose to end-users  and changing team practice. He will also discuss how a simple ‘bug-tracker’ can be used to manage requirements and aid traceability throughout the software life cycle.

Attendees are encouraged to bring examples of issue tracking systems interfaces, preferably emailing them in advance to andrew.dent @

Normally it would be a simple choice as mobility is definitely one of my key interests, but to be fair I’m not sure I’m particularly interested in the phone plans of the 3 network and the topic of Issue Tracking could be a quite interesting debate.  At this stage I’m likely to go to the WAMUG meeting – which would you choose?
