What we're about
Upcoming events (3)
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. 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.
