August 11 meeting - Technically Speaking...

Fri, 2011-07-22 22:08

When: Thursday, August 11th, 7pm
Where: Red Hat HQ, NCSU Centennial Campus
Map: http://www.redhat.com/about/contact/ww/americas/raleigh.html

One of the coolest parts about TriLUG is how the members share their
projects with the rest of the group. Most of the TriLUG meeting presentations
over the last year have been given by members, not by outside guests.
But, geeks that we are, many of us are more comfortable in front of a laptop
(or a green screen terminal) than we are in front of a crowd.
