Open Source Saturday

I can't stop you from wearing shorts, but please think of the rest of us. ;)


Too much going on, on the 1st so by popular decree the date is changed to the second Sat for this month only.

Sweethome 3D will be demo'd.  I'm doing some remodeling so the part of the house I am messing up should be fully entered by then.  It is totally cross platform and simple enough to use.  PLUS they have an online version!  If you have Java installed you can run it in a browser.

Short meeting since we have to bug out right after 11:30a to make room for the Robotics guys.  Unless the second classroom is up and running, and then we are OK for noon.

For everyone going to Texas Linux Fest 2013, YAPC, or A-KON, or one of the other events this weekend - HAVE FUN!

Cya here next week!


---- Caution: Generic Meetup description follows ---

We are a group of some serious, and some not-so-serious, geeks that want to see the Open Source Ethos spread and help as many people as will let it.  During the meetings, which are pretty much an excuse to get together and have fun, we catch up on topical and industry news, projects, code releases, recent technical problems and solutions...

There are sometimes presentations - anything open source but if it is software then running on more than 1 platform is preferred (Linux, Mac, Win, etc.).  Mobile is an exception due to Apple's refusal to let FOSS code onto their IOS platform - so we talk about Android a lot more.

I you have an itch to scratch that can be solved by technology, bring it on in!  You well always get an educated opinion and sometimes a useful answer too.  The group is not homogeneous around one specific technology, or industry, or language or nationality.  What we have in common is our desire to make our lives better, and the set of people in "our" is everyone, everywhere.

Join us afterwards at Mother's Daughter's Diner for lunch! Yes, you want to save room for the pie. Hope you have a hunger for adventure. ;)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
