[Debian-NYC] Fwd: Information on Debian workshop #2, November 12th

Hello debian-nyc list,

Below is the details on the workshop this Thursday.  I am sending this
to the debian-nyc list (I just also sent it directly to just RSVPed
people) since we still have room for more people.  Please RSVP to me
if you would like to come and didn't get my previous mail.

(There will be a way for people without phones to get in, check the
reminder mail tomorrow for plans once I work that out.)

- Richard

Subject: Information on Debian workshop #2, November 12th


If you are getting this message, then you have RSVPed to the second
Debian Workshop. This contains the directions, reminders on what to
bring, etc.  Thanks for planning to attend.

The wiki page for this workshop is:

The workshop will be held in the offices of Meta Health Technology, at
330 7th Avenue [corner of 29th street, above staples], on the 14th
floor.  If you have RSVPed, the security desk in the lobby will have a
list with your name on it.  If not, just sign in, and tell them you're
attending an event at Meta on the 14th floor.  After you get to the
fourteenth floor, there will be a sign posted with a phone number to
call; someone will then come out and let you in.  I'll send you my
phone number tomorrow.

You should aim to arrive at 18:30 or so (Thursday, November 12th).
This should give us time to set up before a start of organized
activities at 19:00, so please arrive at the early range if
possible. If you cannot make it, please let me know so that your spot
may be freed for other attendees.

Most people attending this workshop have attended the previous
workshop, so we will be a significant hands-on component to this
workshop.  The exact topics haven't been decided yet (talk to us in
#debian-nyc and let us know what you'd like), but will probably
involve bugfixing and backporting.  If we have new attendees, there
will be a review of the past workshop, too.

If you didn't attend that one you don't need any preparation, besides
knowledge of a Debian system and your preferred programming tools.  If
you would like, you could browse through the Debian Developer's
Reference or the Debian New Maintainer's Guide to see what is in
there. You don't need to know everything in here, the workshops are a
gentle introduction to them. [0]

You should bring a Debian-based computer you can do development on
(unless you have talked with us to make other arrangements).  We will
have power plugs, wifi, and some ethernet cables.  If you have PGP
keys you'd like signed, bring the fingerprints and ID.

If you have any questions, please ask us via IRC in #debian-nyc on
irc.oftc.net (=irc.debian.org).  You should also use this channel
after the workshop to keep in touch, get questions answered, learn
more, and help contribute back to Debian further.

Thank you,

Richard Darst
