Meeting Date

* * *
We have three great presentations lined up for the March meeting:

  • Raul Suarez will demonstrate how to install Linux on a USB key. This installation can then be booted from any computer that supports USB booting.
  • Andrew Cant will demonstrate the Subversion version control system. He will include some background of version control management concepts.
  • Kyle Spaans will show off git, a distributed version control system initiated by Linus Torvalds to manage the Linux kernel source. Kyle will explain what git is, what makes it different from other source control systems, and what it's good for. He will finish off with a live demo.
