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.
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.
