Location: Electron Workshop 31 Arden Street, North Melbourne.
There will not be a regular LUV Beginners workshop for the month of
September. Instead, you're going to be in for a much bigger treat!
This month, Free Software Melbourne, Linux Users of Victoria and
Electron Workshop are joining forces to bring you the local Software
Freedom Day event for Melbourne.
The event will take place on Saturday 19th September between 11am and
31 Arden Street, North Melbourne.
We will be demonstrating GNU/Linux distributions, the Raspberry Pi,
Arduino and more. You will also get to see free software games on the
big screen - bring your laptops (and perhaps a mouse) if you want to
help put some of them to a mutiplayer test! Newcomers will also be able
to get help trying out and installing GNU/Linux on their machines, and
can learn more about free software.
We will have several guest speakers throughout the day with talks on
contributing to free software, email encryption for beginners and more!
There will be a lunch break and light refreshments will also be provided.
More information about the event is available on the Software Freedom
Day Melbourne website: http://www.sfd.org.au/melbourne/
The day should be both educational and a lot of fun. Please spread the
word, and we'll see you there!
Electron Workshop is on the south side of Arden Street, about half way
between Errol Street and Leveson Street. Public transport: 57 tram,
nearest stop at corner of Errol and Queensberry Streets; 55 and 59 trams
