Hi, Amy! We're glad to hear from you, and I'm responding on behalf of
the moderator team. BALUG's policy on that matter is shown on the list
Linux jobs postings are welcome from companies intending to give a
technical presentation at an upcoming BALUG meeting. If we see a
job-offer posting from you, we expect to see a talk proposal [link]
around the same time. (Companies not prepared to speak may want to
post elsewhere, such as SVLUG Jobs [link] or BayLISA Jobs [link].)
If you can get the ball moving towards arranging a technical talk at
one of BALUG's monthly meetings (Chinatown, San Francisco) from
a Google representative, your jobs postings will be most welcome on
balug-talk: You can just post them directly to
firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll approve them right away.
We had to make that rule because, although BALUG provides an interested
and sometimes sizeable audience in a pleasant environment, there has
been a shortage of speakers, lately.
