- Akamai has generously agreed to provide space and 'free as in food' for this meeting. Thank you to our sponsor! http://www.akamai.com/
In the spirit of summer, we're going to make our August 7 meeting a bit more free form with opportunities to get (and give) help, as well as to socialize with other users of free & open source software.
You are encouraged to bring your laptop. If you are working on a project, e.g. getting a GNU/Linux distro up & running, learning some new software, configuring privacy protection, trying to configure something, etc., bring it with you to work on. We'll try to match you up with other attendees who might be able to help.
If you email me in advance of the meetup with your issue, I'll try my best to have someone available to assist.
If you don't have a specific project, please still come to socialize and help others. I'd also love to hear your ideas for future meetup events. Even in today's virtual society, there is no substitute for meeting face to face.
This is also a good opportunity to bring a friend. Is there someone in your life that you think could benefit from switching to free software? Everyone! ;-) Invite them along and give them an opportunity to speak to other users and hear from different perspectives.
Transportation & Parking
The Akamai office is a short walk from the Kendall Square T stop and other public transportation.
Metered parking is normally available near our location.
Talks & Lightening Talks
Want to give a talk or lightening talk at one of our meetups? Please email me.
Lightening talks can be very short and informal. Perhaps there is a project you want the group's feedback on or something cool you'd like to share or a problem you want to bring more attention to...we'd love to hear from you.
