Joint meeting hosted by Portsmouth, 20 Dec 2014

Broad Oak ClubhouseThe Portsmouth LUG have invited us to join them.

All of you are warmly invited to the Portsmouth LUG Bring a Box meeting, on Saturday, 20th December, from 13:00 to 18:00 at the Broadoaks Social Club.

The talk that had to be put off last month will take place this.  Keith Edmunds of Tiger Computing will talk to us about running an entirely Linux Consultancy.

Keith says that he will be talking about:

From fun to profit: the story of Tiger Computing

In 2002, convinced that there was a place for Linux in businesses, I set up Tiger Computing. I'll talk about:

 - how we got where we are
 - what was fun
 - what was not
 - the kind of technology we use
 - what it's really like running a Linux business
 - how you can get involved if you want to

If anyone would particularly like anything else mentioned, just let Lisi know and she'll ask Keith.

We shall also have our usual bring a box meeting.  Bring a 'box', bring a notebook, bring anything that might run Linux, or just bring yourself and enjoy socialising/learning/teaching or simply chilling out!  Bring any problems, come to have help installing Linux or to pick up installation media.

Since it is our Christmas meeting there will be mincepies, cookies, biscuits....  Depends a bit what people remember to buy/bake/apt-get and bring!

Let's have a seasonal celebration.
