NYLUG Workshop / Hacking Society

The coordinators will be teaching and showing off hardware hacking, simple DIY electronics projects, and programming tutorials. We will also help newcomers to Linux learn the ropes of getting around.

Bring something to discuss! We've been focusing on LaTeX, Python, Smalltalk, and using Linux, but were open to anything. There's a blackboard, chalk, and Internet access.  Notebook computers are helpful but not required. Bring books! Bring hardware! Bring software! Bring friends! All levels of experience from totally new to experienced welcome!

After workshops, the coordinators go out for dinner and/or drinks at a local bar or restaurant. (Depending on what attendees want to do.) Feel free to join us for some lively dinner conversations!

It is helpful, but not necessary to have a notebook computer. If you would like to work on hardware hacking or electronics, feel free to bring equipment. There's WiFi in the library for your convenience.

    It really depends. He may want to release them directly to our group immediately. Then again he may find himself holding onto them for a time.

    Question on the Kitchen.
    Is this the right place?

      Good catch.. We updated the listing to remove the name of the place we go afterwards, since we never settled on a regular spot after Out of the Kitchen closed.
