Hobart TasPubLUG: Thursday 18 October

This month is TasPubLUG time again. We will be heading to the pub to talk about Free and Open Source software, hardware, and culture… or just to generally hang out and having something to eat and drink. This time I’ve randomly pick the Brunswick Hotel as the venue:

Where:
Brunswick Hotel (67 Liverpool Street, Hobart)

If you are planning to come along (even for just a quick drink) please let John know by Tuesday so the appropriate booking can be made if needed.

Hobart TasPubLUG: Thursday 16 August

As mentioned at the last Hobart meeting we will aim to have talks at Enterprize every second month and have the LUG at the pub the months in between. So this month is a pub month and someone in the chat channel suggested Tom McHugo’s, so that’s where we will try.

When:
6:30pm, Thursday 16 August 2018
Where:
Tom McHugo’s (87 Macquarie Street, Hobart)

If you are planning to come along (even for a quick drink) please let John know by Wednesday so we can make the appropriate booking if needed.

Hobart TasPubLUG: Thursday 21 June 2018

This month we will again be meeting up and the (now traditional) Hope and Anchor Tavern for a bite to eat and a chat about all things related to free and open source software, hardware and culture.

When:
6:30pm, Thursday 21 June 2018
Where:
Hope and Anchor Tavern (65 Macquarie St, Hobart)

Hobart TasPubLUG: Thursday 17 May - Brunswick Hotel

The third Thursday of the month is fast approaching which means it is time to meet up and chat about all things related to free and open source software, hardware, and culture.

This month we will be heading to previous TasLUG haunt… the Brunswick Hotel.

When:
6:30pm, Thursday 17 May 2018
Where:
Brunswick Hotel (67 Liverpool Street, Hobart)

Please let John know if you are planning to come along, even if just for a quick drink. If we hear from more than a handful of people by Tuesday that they are coming then we’ll book a table.

It was great to see a good turnout last month, so we can repeat that this month.

Hobart TasPubLUG: Thursday 19 April - Hope and Anchor Tavern

It is that time of the month again to meet up and talk about all things related to free and open source software, hardware, and culture.

Unfortunately Shambles Brewery is a bit busy on the 3rd Thursday of the month so we are trying a new location this month.

When:
6:30pm, Thursday 19 April 2018
Where:
Hope and Anchor Tavern (65 Macquarie St, Hobart)

Let John know if you are planning to come along. If we hear from more than a handful of people that they are coming then we’ll book a table, otherwise we will just rock up see what is available.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next week on Thursday.

Hobart TasPubLUG: Thursday 15 March - Shambles Brewery

The last Hobart TasPubLUG was only a few weeks ago, but we thought we would try to get the Hobart meet-ups back to their regular 3rd Thursday of the month and this month the 3rd Thursday is an early one… Oh well.

This month we will be heading to the pub again to talk about any topics related to Free and Open Source software, hardware, and culture that take our fancy.

There was a special request for this month that people bring along any hardware projects they are working on, or new gadgets they have recently acquired, and give a bit of an explanation about what they are being used for. If you have a new single board computer, dev board, crypto card, or yubi key, etc. bring it along, we would be keen to hear about it.

When:
6:30pm, Thursday 22 March 2018
Where:
Shambles Brewery (222 Elizabeth Street Hobart)
http://www.shamblesbrewery.com.au/
Bring:
Any new hardware projects or gadgets.

We look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday.

Hobart TasLUG at the Pub: Thursday 22 February - Shambles Brewery

For those of you that missed the news, Scott stepped down as the Hobart coordinator of TasLUG meetings at the end of last year. Volunteer work like this can often be a thankless job, so in case it hasn’t already been said…

We would like to say a huge thank you on behalf of the TasLUG community to Scott for organising these meetings for the last 4 years. He has done a wonderful job of finding speakers with interesting talks to present1 and ensuring there was always a space to have the monthly meetings.

The upshot of this though is that no one else has yet put their hand up to organise meetings so they are currently on hiatus for the foreseeable future.

However a few people have expressed an interest in still catching up regularly in person. So this month we will be heading to the pub to talk about the usual things we talk about at meetings.

When:
6:30pm, Thursday 22 March 2018
Where:
Shambles Brewery (222 Elizabeth Street Hobart) http://www.shamblesbrewery.com.au/

There might be a bit of discussion about the future of TasLUG in Hobart, so if you have any opinions or some free time to help out it would be great if you can come along. If you can’t make it, then we always enjoy people dropping by IRC/Matrix for a chat.


  1. Scott often ran tutorials or give talks himself to fill in the months when no other presenters were available.
