Meeting Announcement

April 4, 2019

Venue

Centennial Library (Bells Corners), starting at 18:30

The Centennial Library is at 3870 Old Richmond Rd. in Bells Corners. Bus routes 88, 97, and 256 are listed as servicing that area. Note that we will be done by 20:20, as this library closes earlier than the other location and we need to restore the room to the configuration it was in when we arrived.

Meeting agenda

Annual General Meeting

Once a year we must “elect” a new Board. In recent years we have not had to refuse any nomination, since we have some flexibility in our numbers. This year all but one current Board members have indicated a willingness to remain. Our duties are fairly light:

  • maintain the website
  • maintain the mailing list
  • organize meetings and speakers (our biggest task)

The current Board slate is oclug board election2 019

Discussions
  • Building on one of the ideas for future talks, Scott is going to talk about getting started with Linux, specifically what needs to be covered in a guide for new users. This will be a discussion format, as we have people who are still getting started and may have better ideas than those who have been at it for decades.
  • John is going to go over creation of a live USB distro. Goals, features, etc. This will go well with the previous talk as we would like to incorporate some of that into a guide to getting started.

New2Linux from 18:00 to 18:30 for discussion / learning.

Post Meeting

After the meeting, there may be an optional social event at one of the nearby pubs or restaurants. A short discussion and vote as to location will be taken then.
