For perspective:


**This is our first time meeting there, 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 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 posses a question, so bring questions!

Some topics of discussion are:

-Install/configuration assistance/ (possibly a "getting started" guide)

-Documentation/Standards/"Best Practices"

-Current events/Conventions

-Release testing/bug reporting

-Other projects (Pi/Arduino/Analog devices)

You may also find someone willing to debate VI vs Emacs (however don't expect a conclusion to it ! )

A laptop is not required but strongly reccomended. 
(If you are working a problem , some log/debugging information will be required)

Bring a project, topic or 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 )

The coordinators can also provide pointers based on their experience on how to get up and running as well as documentation and other resources for new users.
