Rescheduling May's Meetup 1 week later. If Jarret has his Cyanogenmod compilation demo ready to go, he will demo it. Otherwise I want to play with Screencasting software like Google hangouts. May 3rd I will be attending a cancer walk, and everyone is welcome to come walk.. or run! This is a memorial for a dear friend, Laura "Wawa" McCracken. We lost her a few weeks ago due to complications arising from Chemotherapy.
For details, or to support Wawa's Warriors, a tax-deductible cause Laura dedicated herself to, hit the link. I made a sub-team, so you can represent OSSat if you want to too! I hear White Rock Lake is very pretty in the morning, despite the unfortunate "exercise" aspect. :) http://ynsitc.kintera.org/faf/home/waiver.asp?ievent=1093667&lis=1&kntae1093667=7BC763D5F2974129BCDAC48D52C4FBC4
Hope to see everyone on one or both Saturdays! John Fields
---- 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 for lunch! Hope you have a hunger for adventure. ;)
