August Meeting: Hybrid tablet Linux & Bookmaking

Date: August 3, 2017 at 7 p.m.
Location: Algonquin (Woodroffe) P216b

We will be in room P216b this meeting

This month we will have two talks, one from Scott on getting linux up and running in a useful fashion on an inexpensive hybrid tablet and the second from John on his bookmaking project (That is publishing, not betting). There will also be a discussion regarding the OCLUG Wiki.

Pre-meeting:

There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 17:30 to 18:30 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 and possibly the BoF, 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.
