Liverpool Linux User Group are a group of Linux and open source software users that meet on the first Wednesday of the month. If no talk is organised then we will usually organise a "open stage" for people to discuss projects, current news, or just to rant.
Adrian McEwen will be giving a talk on the Arduino open-source electronics prototyping platform. This is a a prelude to Howduino hack-day (http://www.howduino.com/) running on the 23rd May at FACT.
After the main talk the stage will be opened for anyone to pimp their current projects or give a short talk about any subject.
This month, a few members will be at Small Steps to Sustainability at FACT (http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/2149511/) before the meeting . Anyone coming into Liverpool early is recommended to pop along.
Usually, we will meet up in "The Old Ropewalk" pub before the meeting, then head out to the event around 7:00pm. The Liverpool Social Centre is two doors up from Forbidden Planet and is the right-hand door at the front of "News From Nowhere". Check the window for a handy Liverpool LUG sign, which will indicate we are there and not still at the pub. Press the white doorbell for access (the one marked basement) and someone will come up and open the door for you.
After the talks we will usually stay in the meeting area for a while then head out back to The Old Ropewalk pub.
If you have any difficulties finding the event, please ring a contact number listed on the website.
