Abstract: It's BeerSIG time!
'What's BeerSIG?' I hear you ask! BeerSIG is a social
gathering, and an opportunity to get together with
like minded people and share a social pint.
This month we're back at Badger & Co, the new pub
in the Kambri precint, otherwise known as the old Union
Court. Be aware, the pub is cashless, and only takes
Payment via debit or credit cards. If you can only use cash
of the physical variety, then you can probably convince a
fellow clugger to assist you with your purchase.
Location: Badger and Co

Look for the table with a stuffed toy penguin
Time: 19:00 - 21:00 (or when it finishes)
Title: Home Automation: The opensource way
Abstract: You may have had grand ideas about home automation, but have
been dragging your heels, in part due to the numerous ecosystems
available, and the massive integration challenge that it involves.
Alastair has done the hard work and created some of the tools
required to take control of his home. He presented this as a
workshop at this year's Linux Conference Australia in Christchurch:
He'll be recounting the interesting story about what it took to put
the workshop together. He may even have put together a few more bits
of custom hardware too, if anyone wants to rut through it at home.
Venue: Room N101
Computer Science and Information Technology Building
The Australian National University
