Monthly Meeting – July 8th

Ever wonder how to customize a Linux install disk, or turn a USB drive into a customized boot image? Dave Hand will be giving a demo and explanation on this very topic on Tuesday night, July 8th.

Following the pizza break, there will be a guided discussion on package management and dealing with dependencies.

Our monthly meetings are always on the second Tuesday of the month, at ITT Tech in Harrisburg at 6:30pm.

See you there!

Meeting Recap – May 2014

22 attended our monthly meeting last Tuesday. We had two very helpful talks.

First talk: “Gaining Knowledge” by Dave Hand
Speaker notes:

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)

Special thanks to:
ITT Tech – for hosting us, and for buying pizza for the meeting.
Christian Pearce and xforty technologies for sponsoring us in the past and paying for the Meetup site. He has stepped down in this role now, so this expense currently falls back to the group.

Next month: “Arch Walk-through” by Nathan Hare

Monthly Meeting – February

Spawned by a simple observation of the education system in 2000, driven by a passion for programming and computers, made possible by the advent of more advanced processors for mobile devices;

The Raspberry Pi.

February 11th, CPLUG takes a closer look at these fascinating devices. Join us at the ITT Tech, Harrisburg campus at 6:30.

Seth Jerome will be bringing a few of his own Raspberry Pi’s and doing a demo.

Monthly Meeting – December 10th

Distro-Fest

The December meeting at CPLUG is always a bit more casual than the rest of the year. There will not be a speaker. Instead, come show off your favorite distro, or just come to see the many other distros and how they compare.

Bring a snack or beverage to share.

There will also be some people bringing old hardware that they’d like to find a good home for. So if you are looking for some tech, or looking to get rid of some things, this might be the perfect opportunity.

The meeting will be held as always at the ITT Tech Harrisburg campus at 6:30

Monthly Meeting – October

Come out for another casual but exciting monthly meeting tonight at the Harrisburg ITT Tech campus. Alex Mayer is going to do a short talk on bootable thumb drives tonight at the monthly meeting. There will be pizza, courtesy of ITT Tech. Seth Jerome will then give another short talk on permissions.

The monthly meeting will be held as always at the ITT Tech Harrisburg campus, probably in room Theory 9, at 6:30pm.

Monthly Meeting – Sept 10th

Open Source Stories

For this month’s meeting, we will have a casual night of conversation. Hear  people’s explanations of how they were able to accomplish things, and tell your own Open Source Stories. Examples include, how to access your home network from outside, different software solutions that were tried and failed for a specific project, or even just your current setup and configuration.

This is also a great time to introduce a problem you are having and discuss it.

The meeting will be held at the usual time and place, 6:30 pm on the second Tuesday of the month, at the ITT Tech Harrisburg Campus.

See you there!

Monthly Meeting – August 13th

Chris Moates will be talking about some options for home file servers as well as a way to use them for backups of all your home computers (Windows, Linux, and Macintosh).

The meeting will take place as usual at the ITT Tech Harrisburg campus at 6:30pm.

Alex Mayer will be filling in as organizer in Nate’s absence.
