Linux Kick Start Event Rescheduled

We are excited to put together a Kick Start event this year for our newer Linux users. Unfortunately, some important details could not be worked out too close to the event. We have tentatively rescheduled this event for the 23rd of May.

We will send out another update once it’s set in stone and we have more details to share.

Monthly Meeting Tonight

Raspberry Pi with Seth Jerome.

Seth has been working with Raspberry Pi for quite some time, and has some very interesting projects, including one he calls, “Car Pi”. Come out for a great demo and discussion about these captivating devices.

Pizza at the break will not be sponsored this month. $1.50 per slice.

As always, our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month at the ITT Tech Harrisburg campus at 6:30pm.

Monthly Meeting – March 2015

Tonights meeting will be more interactive. There is no dedicated speaker. Instead, we will have an open discussion / show and tell.

Topic: Device Chat

Bring a device you’re working on or are using Linux to interact with. This would include Raspberry Pi, Arduino, IP Cameras, robots, 3d printers, or any other device. If you can’t bring a device, you can still share your experiences with the group.

There will be pizza at the break.

As always, our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm at the ITT Tech harrisburg campus.

Monthly Meeting – February 10th

Tuesday’s meeting, as always, will be held at the ITT Tech Harrisburg campus at 6:30pm. We have been regularly assigned room Theory 9, but I will be sure to post signs this month to make it easier to find.

Install Fest – December 9th

If you’re new to Linux, or know someone who is, this meeting would be a great place to start. We will walk you through installing Linux on your computer, or one of ours. Get your questions answered and learn how Linux can run your world!

We will also have a couple CPLUG machines that we will attempt to build out. These are more challenging builds with specific objectives.

Our December meetings are always a bit more relaxed and unstructured. Bring a few distros to show off, and a snack to share (if you want).

As always, the meeting will be held at 6:30pm at the ITT Tech Harrisburg campus.

Monthly Meeting – November 11

Seth Jerome will fill both sessions with a talk and demo of the Raspberry Pi.

Pizza at the break is not currently sponsored. There are no book giveaways this month, sorry about that. We will have those again in December.

Monthly Meeting – August 12th

Session one: Paulo Repreza will explain a web load ballancing system.
