NYLUG.org is New York's Linux Users Group supporting all things Linux and Open Source in the greater New York area. Members are Linux enthusiasts who come to the meetings and installfests, subscribe to a mailing list, and/or participate in keysignings and other NYLUG events. Meetings are free and open to the public (RSVP usually required). Meetings will usually (but not always) take place the second Thursday of the month starting at 6:30pm. Meetings are announced on the NYLUG-Announce mailing list as soon as they are scheduled. All meetings are free and open to the public, but you should put yourself on the RSVP list for your convenience and ours. Our programming Workshop takes place every other Tuesday at the NY Public Library, Hudson Park Branch. You can see the schedule here by checking its calendar. Please, feel free to contact us at email@example.com, if you have any questions about NYLUG.org.
You're invited to hack along with the New York Linux Users Group!
We are very kindly hosted by the New York Amatuer Computer Club (http://nyacc.org/) which meets at NYU.
We are in the Silver Building, Room 401.
Message the organizers via meetup app or message @nylug if you can't find us.
Please have a government issued form of ID with you.
This is a peer-supported workshop where we get together to share current challenges and approaches to solving problems or to just work alongside like-minded individuals and learn through osmosis.
This event is NOT a lecture-style meeting. The agenda is generally set when someone poses a question, so bring questions!
Some topics up for discussion are:
• Install and configuration assistance
• Documentation, standards, and best practices
• Current events/Conventions
• Release testing and bug reporting
• Getting started with languages like Python and LaTeX
• -Other projects (Pi/Arduino/Analog devices)
We will also have brief (approx. 5-10 minute) lightning talks, so please speak with a coordinator if you're interested in sharing some of your work.
A laptop is not required but strongly recommended.
Bring a project, topic, and questions and work with other enthusiasts on using Linux or get assistance with your own Linux/Open Source projects. Geeks are more sociable solving problems rather then just talking about themselves.
