After attending this years MoodleMoot I couldnt help but think that as the Moodle community grows so does the diversity of the user base who attend. The natural progression of a piece of software with global appeal and a global user base.


There were many presentations to choose from and a generous handfull of keynote speeches across the two day event, most of which I found both informative and inspiring.


While there I met many people who I've been following on Twitter for some time now, I also met lots of new 'moodlers' with a wealth of experience - I always claim its impossible for one person to know everything there is to know about Moodle, just when you think you have a featured tied down someone pops up with a twist or turn on how they utilise the same functionality in a diverse or unique way.


I'd like TeachMeetMoodle to focus on the way Moodle is used in the Primary and Secondary Education sector.


I want to keep the detail brief at this stage, the TeachMeet should be about the people who attend and the exchanges that take place.
