Hacked By Imam with Love
Hi again everyone
I’ll see you all there on Weds evening as usual
Herefordshire LUG will be holding another Software Freedom Day free event as part of the worldwide SFD celebrations.
Please come along to All Saints Church in the centre of Hereford to find out more.
We will have demonstrations and information on many Open Source and Linux topics including the Raspberry Pi found increasing in Primary and Secondary schools across the country and beyond.
Find out more about high quality free software that you can use today, and that you are already using when web browsing or searching, using Facebook, Twitter etc.
For more details please see the poster
We’ll see you Saturday … and tell your friends 😉
The entry is open to anyone not just LUG members and will be subject to a small charge, to cover the hire of the venue only.
Grange Court is only accessible from the Church Street entrance to Pinsley Road. There is no through road from the Etnam Street entrance, although this does not show on Google Maps or Satnavs.
For Satnav users, Grange Court’s postcode is HR6 8NL
There is car parking for up to 12 vehicles, and two disabled parking bays. Etnam Street car park and the large car park on Arkwright Close, both pay-and-display, are less than 5 minutes walk from Grange Court. More information about car parks in Leominster can be found here.
We look forward to seeing you on the 24th June Continue reading Beginners Linux Event, Leominster, June 24th 2015
You will see that there is quite an interest in Beginners topics, choice of Distro, interest in Virtualisation, Desktop and Raspberry Pi, and Programming. Topics such as Gaming on Linux, Business applications, such as CRM/ERP and Graphics faired less well. There were a few extra topics requested which you can also see listed, such as a Troubleshooting session (sounds a good one), outreach and spreadsheets for finance.
As discussed at the last LUG Meeting we plan the first meeting based around these topics in June 24th, 4th Wednesday of the month as usual, probably to allow time to get organised. What seemed like a good plan at the meeting is to have a Beginners session that also includes Distro choice, ie why I should choose Ubuntu over Debian, Fedora or Arch for example.
In the end we had 17 responses altogether not too bad, although people were allowed to vote for as many topics as they wanted which seemed like the fairest method to use.
I will setup a Pirate pad (or equivalent) online pad where we can share our plans for this first meeting. There wasn’t consensus where we should hire a room and and have a full session, or just keep things simple and carry on at the Courtyard but please say your ideas on this .
We will also need people who are happy to talk about topics for Beginners, and structure the event. I’m happy to help coordinate, but it’s always best to get as many volunteers to help to reduce the load for the others.
We will also of course need to plan what other events for each month we will hold based around the interest shown above.
So please reply and let everyone know your thoughts, plans and ideas and/or if you want to help
- Herefordshire Linux / Open Source Event to take place instead of Software Freedom day.
Need to decide a date, (November ??), what are we going to do, start the planning, venue (All Saints ??), etc, etc?
OPEN SOURCE AND THE PROFESSIONAL AUDIO/VISUAL ENVIRONMENT EVENT – 18 JUNE 2014
Room booked – need to discuss details in terms of organisation on the night and publicity to other groups.
- Possible Linux Bier Wanderung meet up, in Talybont on Usk – July. I’ve emailed their group and they are happy for us to come down that Wednesday evening .
Just a quick note to say our April LUG meeting will be tonight at 7.30pm, usual place the Courtyard in Hereford on the mezzanine floor.
If you have been on our list but haven’t attended a meeting yet, or you’ve been unable to attend for a while, we’d be very pleased to see you.
The meeting will start at 7:30pm as usual.
Items to discuss :-
- New Special Event – Where’s best to book? I have some details on the Leominster Grange Court which for community groups is more affordable than previous places we have used or looked at.
- New HLUG website – not many posts going on there. can we do som e training, or find out how we can get more people posting to it?
The Courtyard has free fast wifi and serves lovely coffees, and there is level access to all public areas of the building. You can find directions to The Courtyard, Edgar Street, Hereford, HR4 9JR here
The Courtyard has pay and display parking adjacent and free parking a short walk away.
I’ll see you all there tonight.
Again, sorry for the short notice
Wednesday 26 February 2014 Meeting –
7.30 pm Wednesday upstairs lobby at the Courtyard Hereford
More details nearer the time
A lively start to 2014 with a lot of current and future projects under discussion. A small panic over the new website until we realised we were actually looking at the old one! Planning an event for Document Freedom Day, on 26 March as well.
