Hobart TasPubLUG: Thursday 9 May - Shambles Brewery

May is TasPubLUG time where we head to the pub to talk about Free and Open Source software, hardware and culture… or just generally hang out and have something to eat and drink.

Now that meetings are on the second Thursday of the month they long longer clash with A Pint of History at the Shambles Brewery, so we figured we would head back there.

6:30pm, Thursday 9 May 2019
Shambles Brewery (222 Elizabeth Street Hobart)

If you are planning to come along (even for a quick drink) it would be great if you can let John know. If a largish number of people plan to come along then I’ll reserve a table.

Short talks wanted for June Hobart meeting

The June meeting is still a while off yet, but we thought we would try something a little bit different and have a bunch of short talks instead of the usual one or two longer talks.

Some suggestions for things people might want to talk about:

  • some project they are currently working on
  • a useful tool/application/distro they think others should know about
  • some useful tips/tricks
  • a general rant about some topic

Pretty much any topic semi-related to open source software, hardware, or culture would be welcome. If you have a topic you are a bit unsure about, feel free to run the idea by John… he’ll most likely say yes.

If you want to give a short talk, then please drop John a line letting him know the topic and how long you think your talk will be. Ideally we would like to keep talks between 2-10 minutes, but if you need more time let John know and we’ll see what we can schedule in.

We look forward to seeing what people come up with.

Hobart TasLUG Meeting: Thursday 11 April

April is upon us and with it brings an earlier than usual TasLUG meeting, the second of the year to feature talks:

Ben Short

Grafana is a data visualisation and analytics platform and the project has recently started developing a logging platform called Loki. Ben will take you through setting up some basic network & syslog monitoring using Grafana, Loki, and Docker containers.

The venue for this month will be Enterprize Hobart:

Thursday 11 April 2019 - 6:00pm for a 6:30pm start
Enterprize - Hobart
5th floor, Hobart City Council Building
24 Davey Street (map)

Note: the doors inside the foyer will be locked, so you will need to use the intercom to let us know to buzz you in. However, if you arrive after 6:30pm, then we’ll leave a note with a phone number to call as the intercom isn’t near where the talks will be.

Enterprize provide a selection of alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks and coffee pods for the appropriate donation, as well as free instant coffee and tea. So come at 6:00pm, get a drink, and have a bit of a mingle before the talks start at 6:30pm. We will also be heading out to find somewhere to eat afterwards for those interested.

I would like to to extend a big thank you to Enterprize for generously allowing us to use their space to hold regular meetings.
