TasLUG South : Hobart September Meeting
Posted by craige on 2013/9/11 17:38:26 (350 reads)

Welcome to September! I trust you've all recovered from the Federal Election DERP and have your eyes firmly on Software Freedom Day which is less than two weeks away. Here's what's on this month:

When: Thursday, September 19th, 18:00 for an 18:30 start
Where: 69 Liverpool St, Hobart. (Map)


  • 18:00 - early mingle, chin wagging, etc
  • 18:30 - Question and
    answer session, new Hobart meeting venue, Internet privacy discussion
  • 19:00 - Hacking
    for Freedom: A TasLUG Sprint

    As a prelude to Software Freedom Day, we'll be discussing and perhaps even making a start on contributing to a Free Software project of our choosing.

    ownCloud has been touted as one project to work on, to help those who
    want an NSA free cloud.

    LibreOffice has also been floated as another option, particularly as a demo for writing python / javascript macros.

    If you're looking to get a start in contributing to Free Software, this night will be a great opportunity.

    If you're an experienced hacker, you can provide mentoring and leadership to those following in your footsteps.

    If like me, you can't programme your way out of a paper if statement, it's great learning opportunity.

  • 20:00 - Meeting end. Many people go to the Brunswick for dinner.
