NOTE: You do not have to formally RSVP to come, but please let us know, so we have a ballpark headcount to communicate to the restaurant to ensure there is enough seating. The meeting starts at 7pm, but feel free to come as early as 6:30pm to help set up the room.
There is no formal presentation this month. We will go for adhoc talks and discussions including:
* SGVLUG/SGVHAK year in review + how you can contribute to keep the group going
* Southern California Linux Expo roundtable. What is the discount code? Who will be speaking at SCALE? What are the plans for our booth? What is the SCALE A/V team working on?
* Jess will give an overview on the current state of Linux Desktop Environments for those curious about what else is available out there
Dinner is at 7pm. Presentations/discussions will start after most people have received their food or 8 pm, whichever comes first.
You are not required to have dinner with us or order food or stay for the entire meeting. We will have separate checks. Validation is not required for parking. However, please take note of signs when parking.
SGVLUG is one of the oldest and most active Linux User Groups in the Greater Los Angeles area. In addition to Linux, the group also shares interests in other free and open source software, all forms of technology, and the discussion of issues that arise with the these new tools, such as privacy rights. SGVLUG attracts members from throughout LA County including Pasadena, Glendale, Burbank, and eastward throughout the San Gabriel Valley. Our members include software developers, system administrators, hardware engineers, and software users of all levels of experience. Many work in the technology field as employees, contractors or consultants, and enjoy the learning and networking opportunities available from the group. We also have many members that serve as volunteers of their time and skills at various local events, including the annual Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE).
