October Meeting: Short topics and open talk night

Location: Algonquin College (Woodroffe Campus), room T317

Note This meeting is at the Woodroff campus of Algonquin in Building T, room T-317 at 7:00pm

This month we will be having a few short talks kind of a lightning talk night. We only have one talk finalized so far, but if anyone has a topic they would like to make a short presentation on, we will entertain them as well. As talk details are confirmed, they will be added to the list.


There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 18:00 to 19:00 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.

After Meeting Social:

After the meeting, there will be a social event at one of the nearby pubs or restaurants. A short discussion and vote as to location will be taken then.

GPG Keysigning:

After the main talk there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a monthly offering, just look for Scott after the talk and we can go from there. Bring some kind of photo ID and some keyslips if you expect people to sign your key.If you need some method of creating pages of keyslips, there is an online slip generator available.
