We have whiteboards! Big, juicy, white chocolatey, smooth as velour white boards. Pull up a groove and get fabulous.
May Demonstration: Cross platform ad-hoc remote control via Chrome (yes the web browser!)
YES, RMS, the browser plugin and infrastructure are google's and not open source but this is of wide enough interest that we are going to look at it.
NOTE: Member Aji has a project, needs to evaluate tablets. If you have a tablet (I'm looking you, Nook), please bring it so he can get a hands on?
---- 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. ;)
