22 attended our monthly meeting last Tuesday. We had two very helpful talks.
First talk: “Gaining Knowledge” by Dave Hand
I’ve attached the mind map file I was working from. It can be opened with freemind (info pasted below). It also exports an outline in html format (attached).
I’m planning on making this presentation a “living document” so that it can be re-used periodically especially for new user meetings.
Cell: (717) 673-7867 (SMS)
Attachments: Mind map files (generated with freemind)
Second talk: “VPN / Proxy” by Paulo Repreza
If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, you can email me at email@example.com
Attachments: SSH and Open VPN reference (PDF)
AV: nothing was recorded
Special thanks to:
ITT Tech – for hosting us, and for buying pizza for the meeting.
