Hi Folks,

Thanks for coming along last month.

The next ScotLUG meeting will be on Thursday 29th November. We should be
kicking around the Electron Club around 7 PM. We will be aiming to start
the talk at 7:30 PM.

At the tail end of the meeting last month, I opened the floor to a
discussion about the various technical tooling that we use to organise our
monthly events, aiming to get a steer on what things are working and what
things can be improved. Naturally, this discussion veered away from the
technology side of things and more towards the content of our meetings,
their structure and how we plan them.

To this end, we’re going to be making a few lightweight changes to make the
meetings more fun and bit more informative for our attendees.

Going forward, we’re going to be emphasising our focus on Free Libre Open
Source Software and Hardware. We’re also going to be re-introducing the Q&A
section at the end of the meeting.

I’ve update the website with some description of our meeting structure, you
can find it at

Going forward, I’m looking for someone to help out with general
announcements and promotion of ScotLUG. Let me know if you’re interested in
helping out here.

This month. I’m looking for some volunteers to present a 10-minute
lightning talk. If you’re interested, please let us know at the following

Lightning talks can be about a project that you’re working on (or a project
that you’re passionate about). If you’re unsure, we can help you to develop
your talk, just let us know by email.

   - 7:30PM - Lightning Talks
   - 8:30PM - Linux / FLOSS Q&A
   - 8:45PM - Adjourn to the Pub

Following the talk we will be adjourning to a local bar, this is likely to
be the Terrace Bar of the CCA. There is no requirement to purchase food or
drink if you don't want to.

Hope to see you all there.
