The WNYLUG will be holding our next meeting : July 14th 2010 at The PCA Group, 455 Cayuga Rd, Suite 200, Buffalo NY 14225 (Near the Airport) from 6:30pm to 9:00pm
- Open Floor
As posted to our mailing list:
In just 5 days Fosscon 2010 will take place at Rochester Institute ofTechnology in Rochester, NY.
I wanted to take the opportunity to invite you there as well, as I don’t believe the Buffalo area has gotten any attention with regards to the event.
There will be 14 talks and 4 workshops on various topics relevant to Free and Open Source software, including using it in business, in the home, and in education.
Some of the talks include:
The POSSE Panel: a group of educators sharing what they learned about teaching open source.
Making the Most of Communities: Bryan Ostergaard
Learning how to fish: A self-help guide to finding Linux help on the internet: Jorge O Castro
Linux in Business: Karlie Robinson
Resume Workshop (Brush up on your Job seeking skills): RIT
And lots more.
There is also space available for BOF sessions, and if wnylug is interested we can offer you a table in the exhibition hall as well.
For more info see http://fosscon.org. Speakers list is at http://fosscon.org/speakers, and you can register at http://fosscon.org/register/.
The event registration is $30 but I’m happy to pass on a discount code for the fine folks of New York state, “empirestate” to take a little bit off.
