Week #10: Lightning Talks
29 October 2021
Hello LUGers, as we announced earlier, we are doing lightning talks this week!
We will be doing a series of short 5-10 minute talks on anything Linux, FOSS,
or tech related. Or anything else you think would be of interest to the club.
You don’t need to prepare slides or anything, just come up and talk! You could
show us your Linux setup, show off a CLI cool tool you use, show off a project
you’ve worked on, or even give us your spiciest tech hot takes.
An additional announcement, HFOSS is being offered this coming spring semester.
