How to find us

Ultimate Happiness lies in being Found. Just as the road starts to curve to the left, you want to turn right. We are at the west end of the corner building you just passed.

LAST meeting before school starts! I'm sure this affects at least some of ya'll. ;)

OpenShot Video Editor Jonathan Thomas, the project's creator and driving force, fresh off a resounding victory on planet kickstarter.com, will talk about his new build system, the kickstarter campaign, and whatever else he wants to dive into. Probably also some of the neato things his app can do. We are lucky since he lives in Arlington, TX and can make it out to talk with us.

New Classroom, on the other (Monroe St.) side of the building. Both doors should be accessible, but we are moving on over this meeting...

Ubuntu Touch I'll try and have the most recent dev preview running on my Galaxy Nexus phone.

And for food, The Wild Turkey by the bowling alley on Walnut is expected; a North Dallas institution, burgers and beers.

Cya there!

---- Caution: Generic Meetup description follows ---

We are a group of some serious, and some not-so-serious, geeks that want to see the Open Source Ethos spread and help as many people as will let it. During the meetings, which are pretty much an excuse to get together and have fun, we catch up on topical and industry news, projects, code releases, recent technical problems and solutions...

There are sometimes presentations - anything open source but if it is software then running on more than 1 platform is preferred (Linux, Mac, Win, etc.). Mobile is an exception due to Apple's refusal to let FOSS code onto their IOS platform - so we talk about Android a lot more.

I you have an itch to scratch that can be solved by technology, bring it on in! You well always get an educated opinion and sometimes a useful answer too. The group is not homogeneous around one specific technology, or industry, or language or nationality. What we have in common is our desire to make our lives better, and the set of people in "our" is everyone, everywhere.

Join us afterwards at Mother's Daughter's Diner for lunch! Yes, you want to save room for the pie. Hope you have a hunger for adventure. ;)
