K-LUG - Rochester, MN Area Linux Users Group
Note: To request a wiki account, please join the mailing list and post a message.
We can use presentations for upcoming meetings, please see a list of ideas if you're willing but lacking a topic.
We generally meet monthly for technical presentations (2nd Thursday of the month, 6 pm, RCTC), and monthly for socializing (varies). We no longer meet monthly for lunches, if you are interested in reviving this tradition please contact an officer.
Did you used to be on our email list and suddenly haven't gotten email for months? We had a glitch and it caused many people to get unsubscribed; unfortunately Tina doesn't have a way of knowing who all we lost. Please use "Linux mailing list" on the left to get yourself re-added, sorry!
Technical Meeting: Thursday November 8th
Med City Drone presentation by founder Ryan Kuisle.
MedCity Drones is Rochester's first drone racing club run in accordance with MultiGP safety guidelines. We are still growing and learning, but are happy to share what knowledge we have gained. In our presentation we will go over drone basics (drone builds, control, first person view) along with a racing overview. At the end we will have some show and tell and time for questions.
If anyone has any questions they know in advance, please send them to Tina, Ryan wants to incorporate them into his presentation. But be aware that the meeting will be run by Nix, so any last minute items need to go to him.
6 pm, in or near RCTC Heintz Center's HA108.
Anything else you want to see on the agenda? Let Tina know.
We avoid having a November social, to keep the scheduling burden on families as light as possible during the holiday season.

Upcoming Meeting Crisis!
We need some meeting topics (& speakers) for 2018. We'd like to know what you want to see and hear about. Please email Tina with suggestions for topics. Should we run some previous sessions again (maybe something you really wanted to see but missed out on)? What type of topics are good, what type are bad?
