Stammtisch

Stammtisch comes from German and refers to a regularly held get together, usually involving beer and food (it is German afterall...).

Stammtisch will meet as normal in November ( on the 20th ) and December ( on the 18th ) at Boulders on Southern, 1010 W Southern Ave, Mesa.

In December the PLUG east side meeting is a pot luck party.

There will be no security meeting in December. Security meetings will start again in January.

For the end of year pot luck, bring some friends and family.

PLUG July East Valley Meeting Wrapup

Thursday's PLUG meeting for July went well. We had a large crowd for mid-summer including lots of new faces.

Announcements included an opening for teaching electronics at a local community college. The department head showed up, so I handed it over to him for descriptions of the classes and what they need. He's adamant about a GNU/Linux infrastructure being vital to the success of the program and has hired 4 previous instructors from PLUG.

Software Freedom Day in Phoenix

Software Freedom Day is an annual worldwide event celebrating and promoting Free Software. This year it's on Saturday, September 17th, which is our regularly scheduled Installfest.

The Installfest is a perfect event for Software Freedom Day.

AZ FOSS Jobs for PLUG resume presentation followup

After my resume writing presentation at PLUG last week a few people spoke to me about looking for jobs. Some were new, so I don't yet know them by name. Hopefully they show up for Resume Review Night on Tuesday.

Family and Gaming Night for 2016Jun FLOSS Stammtisch

Stammtisch is next week.

usually Stammtisch is the Tuesday after the PLUG meeting, but this month there is a week in between because the month started on a Wednesday.

This month is a family night event. We will start that at 18:00 to give
kids time to participate and still be home for bedtime.

Additionally, we're following up the great games night presentations last week with a gaming night at Stammtisch. Please bring Free Software related gaming stuff in.

/me already has rolldice installed and "Hey! That's my fish!" packed :).

Gaming night in June

We have two presentations about gaming on GNU/Linux lined up for our June east side meeting on Thursday the 9th starting at 19:00.

Todd, who recently completely filled the room with his systemd talk, has "Linux Gaming - Steam games, GPU drivers, and custom compiling WINE".

Aaron, who has recently covered git and CLI for us, will be covering his gaming setup.

Gaming night follows some recent successful theme events such as space night and process improvement night.

FLOSS Stammtisch moved to Boulders on Southern in Mesa

The Free Software Stammtisch has moved to Boulders on Southern, near Fiesta Mall in Mesa. We're happy to return to Boulders and the new location will work better.

The original, Boulders on Broadway, was great, but has little parking and a very popular Tuesday night trivia. The owner is glad to have us return to the new location. He came by our first night to make sure everything was running well for us.

Job Night @ Stammtisch on 2014Jul15

ANNOUNCEMENT: Job Night @ Stammtisch! The Free Software Stammtisch is hosting a job fair at this coming east valley event on Tuesday, 2014Jul15. The goal is to bring in engineers and managers from groups that are hiring as well as job seekers and recruiters. For technical positions it's much better to talk directly to the team that is hiring.

Great tech resume workshop turnout

We filled the room for the Tech Resume Workshop. It was great to see a good turnout of both job seekers and those volunteering to help with resume feedback and practice interviews.

Thanks to the volunteers who showed up to help!

We will likely hold another job event either in November or January. Still debating. The next event will be a job night. The goal is go have sysadmins, developers and hiring managers from companies that are hiring come out looking for people to fit the openings. We had some of that this time around as well :).
