Making computers work FOR you (and not the other way around!)

It can go both ways--computers can work for you, or they can make you work for them. This meetup, aside from being an open discussion, will focus on sharing tips, tricks and tools that have gotten us working smarter. faster. The goal is to walk away from this meetup with some powerful new tools and a fresh perspective on staying productive in your digital world. All ages and skill levels welcome! 

Potential topics:

• The Diary File.
• Aliasing and other shortcuts.
• Cronjob, Celery, Hazel, IFTTT and other task queue systems.
• Scripting fixes and automation (any language).
• Quantified Self - Tracking your habbits and time.
• Productivity apps (e.g. Evernote, Alfred, TextExpander...)
• Getting Things Done (time-management method)

    I'll be bringing a laptop + external display as I put some slides together for this meetup. It's not very large, but it should work for our small group.

    If you have a laptop, bring it. If you have a particular problem, or workflow you are looking to optimize, or automate, put together some material to share with the group. Would be nice to not only go over some concepts and general info, but real-world examples that ya'll can bring back home with a possible solution in hand... Thats exciting! Can't wait to see you all there. There are a couple more people that are attending but haven't RSVP'd through Should be a great time.
