We can use presentations for upcoming meetings, please see a list of ideas if you're willing but lacking a topic.


LUG News

We generally meet monthly for technical presentations (2nd Thursday of the month, 6 pm, RCTC), and monthly for socializing (varies). We no longer meet monthly for lunches, if you are interested in reviving this tradition please contact an officer.

Did you used to be on our email list and suddenly haven't gotten email for months? We had a glitch and it caused many people to get unsubscribed; unfortunately Tina doesn't have a way of knowing who all we lost. Please use "Linux mailing list" on the left to get yourself re-added, sorry!




Technical Meeting: Thursday September 8th

Robert Nix, on how to put together an iOS application in Xcode in Swift.

--

Swift has been a trending topic, and now that it has been open-sourced, the language becomes more relevant for platforms outside of Apple. Join us as we look at Swift 3 and XCode 8, and how to put together an iOS app from start to running on the iPhone.

Robert has been programming in one language or another since 1973, and has gained experience and insight over the years that has allowed him to adopt and adapt to new languages in a quickly changing industry. Swift is the latest in what has been a 43 year educational trek.

We probably won't have a November social unless someone has a specific request, as due to the approaching holiday season we tend to have very poor turnout this month.


Technical Meeting / Social: Friday December 9th, 6:00 pm-midnight

In December we do something like board or card games, video games, etc because it's just too close to Thanksgiving and Christmas to fit in a social and a speaker.

Tollefoto is hosting a gaming night at his house. Email him or Tina if you need address and/or directions. Start time is 6:00 pm. Note that this is NOT our usual second Thursday, we pushed it back one night so people don't have to deal with getting to work in the morning.

We play whatever you bring. Please consider bringing board games to play, snacks and/or drinks. RSVP's of the types of stuff you're bringing would be appreciated so we don't have overstocks of some items (such as everyone bringing chips).

Dinner - Tollefoto is still thinking on this, look for updates later.

Upcoming Meeting Crisis!

We need some meeting topics (& speakers) for 2016. We'd like to know what you want to see and hear about. Please email Tina or Jon G with suggestions for topics. Should we run some previous sessions again (maybe something you really wanted to see but missed out on)? What type of topics are good, what type are bad? Also see this page for a list of suggested topics http://www.k-lug.org/Meetings
