       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!
