Monthly Meeting

Raspberry Pi Giveaway DOOR PRIZE: We will be giving away one Raspberry Pi computer to one lucky participant. The contest is open to current paid-up members, and you must be present to win.

Our topics for the meeting include: 

LaTeX 

LaTeX is the venerable document preparation system built on top of the TeX typesetting program. It's incredibly powerful for creating any document, from simple memos to textbooks and published papers. It can also be used to create presentations. All this power can be daunting for the begining user, but never fear as we've enlisted the help of two presentations to help get you using this amazing system. Jim McQuillan will cover some of the basics of how to use LaTeX as part of a template-based workflow for medical billing, while Will Fuqua will demonstrate tips and tricks for getting started by showing several documents you can create. Plus they'll show off some GUI tools just in case you'd like a gentler introduction. If you've ever thought there was a better way to lay out and format documents outside of a word processor this is a talk you won't want to miss.

Book Swap

Bring your old and gently used books to trade and swap with other folks. Take a book or leave a book, or do both. You don’t need to bring anything to take something home. All we ask is if you bring something that it finds a home by the end of the night. We'll have more details at the meeting.

And we’ll also have our normal MUG meeting features: Jobs Looking For People, People Looking for Jobs, news and events, and much much more.

See our website for more details!

    I have never used LaTeX so I am looking forward to learning a bit about it.

    Remember to bring your no-longer-wanted tech books along to the meeting for the book swap. And don't be shy about picking up any books that are on the swap table. Hope to see you there!
