Hi all. RITlug shared this announcement on the mailing list today. Here’s an overview of what is planned for the spring semester:
Hello RITlug and welcome to Week 1! This Friday we will hold our first meeting of the semester in GOL-2650.
In true LUG form we will kick things off by trialing Linux distributions on the lab machines (or personal machines, we will have flash drives readily available for booting).
Come join us for a fun evening of exploring new distros and re-discovering old favorites!
Each month will consist of presentations from students and guest speakers that follow a theme. Below is an outline of some of the topics we’d like to cover this semester.
As always if you have an idea on a topic you’d like to see a presentation on, or if you have a presentation you’d like to give - feel free to reach out to us on Slack, Email, or even our Spring Semester Planning issue on GitHub
