Please join us for an evening of conversation with John D. Mitchell, Chief Architect of Krugle, as he speaks on "How Source Code Search is Revolutionizing Open Source Software Development... and What it Means for Linux Users".

Krugle is a source code search engine for developers. Their website, krugle.com, hosts a public search service for open/free software; they also offer an enterprise appliance to organizations. Krugle is built on top of a lot of Free / Open Source software and deployed on Linux.

The Bay Area Linux Users Group meets the third Tuesday of each month at the Four Seas Restaurant in Chinatown. We talk about Linux and share large portions of Chinese food. At only $13 per person for dinner, this is one of the best epicurean deals in the city. Show up by 7 if you want dinner, or earlier (6:30) for some social chat at the bar. If you can't make dinner, feel free to show up at 7:45 for the talk. Meet up afterwards (9:15) at the Li Po Lounge (916 Grant Ave) for more talking and drinking.
