The next meeting of Portsmouth Linux User Group will be Saturday, 20th August, 
(tomorrow), from 13:00 to 18:00 at the Broadoak Sports and Social Club, 

Jeffrey Best will give us  talk entitled: "A Whistle-stop Tour of jQuery and 
Node.js".  He says:
We have started to use jQuery widely and we have been exploring whether 
Node.js is a suitable technology to deploy for services to slot into process 
chains to support generic functionality tailored to the specific short-term 
requirements of a particular client or event.  This talk was created as part 
of my programme to develop in-house training resources.

In addition, if Luke Stutters is able to make it to the meeting he will give a 
short talk on making contact over the Internet with ssh, using a virtual 
Ubuntu server in Google Compute Engine.

It will also be our usual Bring a Box meeting: bring your problems, bring your 
gadgets, come to chat or come to learn.  Bring anything from a smartphone to 
a large desktop - so long as it is, at least partly, Open Source!  And 
remember that Android has a Linux kernel. ;-)  Or just bring yourself.  You 
may bring a box, not you must bring a box.

If you are daunted by something you want to install, upgrade, try out or test, 
do your installation, upgrade, configuration, testing, at the meeting with 
all those helpful, knowledgeable, people round you.

If you are primarily interested in food and drink, we are not your ideal 
location.  But if you are after tech help, tech talk, an immersion in being 
techy, then we may be what you are looking for.

I look forward to seeing some of you there. :-)  If you haven't been before, 
don't be shy.  We are a friendly group, and would love to see you.  
Come and see what we are about and what we look like.

P.S. Advance notice of the September meeting:  Matthew Withers will be giving 
his delayed delayed (!) talk about Open Source Science.  It was previously to 
have been about Astrophotography, but Matthew has decided to broaden it.  He 
assures me that there will still be a lot of photography and Astrophysics in 
his talk!

Note: This talk, that had been scheduled for October 2015, and had to be 
cancelled because of illness, has again had to be rescheduled for September.
