December Meeting: Vim Talk
Date: December 4, 2014 at 7 p.m.
Location: Dymon Storage Boardroom, Carling @ The Queensway
Note: We have a fixed location for the 2015 meetings. Starting in January, we will be meeting at the Rosemount branch of the Ottawa Public Library, 18 Rosemount Avenue near Wellington. Street parking is available and there are bus routes (2, 14) that run nearby. As this is the OPL, we have to be done by 20:15
This month we will be having an informal talk on vim by Samir Hussein.
There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 18:00 to 19:00 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.
After the main talk, there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a standard offering, just look for Scott after the talk and we can go from there. Bring some kind of photo ID and some keyslips if you expect people to sign your key.
Speaker: Samir Hussain
