What we're about

The purpose of this meet up is to let people learn and teach about Free and Open Source Software in all its varied splendour! We'll be doing talks, demos, and open discussion. Topics - I hope we'll encounter most of these during any given session - can be introduction-to-FOSS related, deeply technical, related to employment, specific software applications, FOSS on Linux, Windows, OS X and elsewhere. It might include installing software for people, and helping them figure out how to use it once it's there, hacking on specific code bases, learning how to make open source contributions, learning how to use developer tools, talking about FOSS licenses, and other stuff. Remember, like FOSS itself, this group is community driven - if people come along and want to do or discuss something, we'll do it!

Online Monthly NZ FOSS Meetup

Online event

We get together each month on the second Tuesday night at 20:00 to talk about FOSS things. The folks there on the night determine the programme, including question and answer, discussion, presentations, demos, and whatever else people suggest.

We always meet at https://bbb.nzoss.nz/b/dav-rqm-3fq - unfortunately, Meetup.com has short-sighted restrictions (strongly biased to proprietary options) about what sorts of video conferencing services it allows us to specify, so it rejects the valid link to our BigBlueButton instance... That's why we included it here.
