2020 Meeting Presentation Notes










Sept 4 online meeting.

John Nash led a discussion of Managing Photo Collections.

Slides: photomanage-linuxottawa202009jn.odp

Perl program to convert all jpegs in a directory into a captioned HTML file using the comments in jpeg files as the captions, then upload to server with download options

Python program (still under development) to comment and rename jpeg files. A project that was used to learn Python::tkinter

Note that Dokuwiki prevents upload of .py or .pl files, so I've zipped them.



John Nash will present a short literature review. Slides of “A Linux perspective on the literature of Electronic Election Systems” are here
