The wonderful folks at OpenX are hosting this meeting, and they are also providing food. We need to provide a list of names to building security. RSVPs will be capped at 40. Contact Lan if you have questions.

NOTE: Due to construction,you can only drive in on Lake Ave, not Walnut, and the Meetup entrance is on Walnut. There is a detailed map. Thanks to Derek for handling the OpenX logistics and drawing the updated map.

Note: Our original speaker, Christian Weber, had to cancel, but he sent us another speaker, Jennie Ohyoung, who is also a Solutions Engineer at GitHub. The topic has changed slightly.


We will be covering the new features that were announced at GitHub Universe as well as how GitHub and other organizations use the GitHub's webhooks and API to enhance their existing workflows within GitHub.


Jennie Ohyoung is a Solutions Engineer at GitHub as well with a background in gaming and mobile. She has worked both as a support engineer as well as a sales engineer in her previous position. Her goal is to help developers to get the most out of GitHub and enable them with whatever is needed to reach their goal

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).
