Western New York Linux Users Group
The March 13th 2013 WNYLUG meeting is cancelled in lieu of a mini conference presentation with other area groups before the Beta Awards.
Please join us and other area groups on March 27th from 5pm to 7pm at the Buffalo Convention Center.
The WNYLUG will be holding our next meeting : January 11th 2012 at The PCA Group, 455 Cayuga Rd, Suite 200, Buffalo NY 14225 (Near the Airport) from 6:30pm to 9:00pm
It’s a New Year and to celebrate it we decided to hold an InstallFest during our first meeting of the year, so bring your machines and or questions and we will do our best to assist with your installation or resolve any issues you may have.
We will provide keyboard, mice and monitors.
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.

Just wanted to remind everyone about the Debian Conference
Debian Conference is the annual Debian developers meeting, an event filled with coding parties, discussions and workshops – all of them highly technical in nature. It will be held in New York City, USA, August 1-7, 2010.
Previous Debian Conferences have featured speakers from around the world. They have also been extremely beneficial for developing key Debian software components, including the new Debian Installer, and for improving Debian’s internationalization.
Development teams like debian-installer and debian-edu also have the possibility of meeting beforehand for undisturbed collaborative work. However, note that only the basic necessities like bed and network connection will be provided at that time. Interested teams should contact the organizers upfront to make special arrangements. DebCamp will take place immediately prior to the main conference, from July 25-31, 2010.
DebConf Open Day
Meanwhile, decision-makers interested in discovering the benefits of Free Software and Debian users are invited to attend DebConf Open Day. DebConf Open Day is an open house event with presentations of general interest.
