Date: September 7, 2017 at 7 p.m.
Location: Dymon Storage Boardroom, 110 Didsbury Road

We will not be at Algonquin this month We will be at Dymon Storage in Kanata for this meeting

As this is September and the beginning of the new year at Algonquin, we do not have an assigned room yet. This should be cleared up for October.

This month we will have two talks, one from Ian on PBX log data extraction and one from Scott on anonymous data collaboration.


There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 17:30 to 18:30 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.

After Meeting Social:

After the meeting, there typically will be a social event at one of the nearby pubs or restaurants. A short discussion and vote as to location will be taken at the end of the talks.

GPG Keysigning:

After the main talk and possibly the BoF, there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a monthly 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.If you need some method of creating pages of keyslips, there is an online slip generator available.
