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 17th September between 10am and
31 Arden Street, North Melbourne.
We will be demonstrating GNU/Linux distributions. 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
Free Software in Schools, Open Street Map and more! There will be a
lunch break and tea, coffee and light snacks will also be provided
throughout the day. This is the a family friendly event, please invite
anyone that is interested as the more people that are involved the more
the positive effects can be spread.
