NYLUG Open hacker hours

You're invited to hack along with the New York Linux Users Group!

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.

    I'm seeing a consistent problem with using npm to install packages that require compilation on vagrant-ubuntu-trusty64 boxes. I'd love some help with debugging the errors I'm seeing so I can offer a PR.

    I am an old Microsoft network engineer. Just built my first linux server. Looking forward to learning some new skills and exploiting all the benefits of having a linux server.
