        Canberra Linux Users Group Meeting - 28th August 2008

Date:           28th August 2008 (Fourth Thursday of the month)

Time:           19:00 - 21:00 (or when it finishes)

Speaker:        Dave Adams, Paul Wayper and Hugh Blemings

		This month we have three short presentations with
		something for everyone!

		Dave Adams will give a brief introduction to Wine and
		present a demonstration of the programs it can run (with
		a focus on games).

		Paul Wayper will give a quick introduction to SELinux -
		specifically, how to deal with it in everyday life. He
		will cover checking and restoring permissions, changing
		the SELinux options, and the broader question of how to
		deal with a SELinux alert.

		And last but certainly not least, Hugh Blemings will
		conduct an informal session (with plenty of
		demonstrations) entitled, 'Tricks of the Trade: Learning
		Free Software hacking from clever people'.

		Hugh says that thanks to the efforts of various projects
		aimed at newcomers to Free Software development,
		starting hacking is no longer as daunting as it once
		was. However there is less coverage of the techniques
		that experienced developers use on a day to day basis to
		streamline their work.

		Hugh will present a grab bag of tricks of the trade that
		he has learned from his own coding efforts, through
		observing colleagues at OzLabs and by chatting with folk
		in the broader community.

		Certainly a CLUG meeting not to be missed!
