For those of you who missed it, annual meeting 2017 was a success! The board for the upcoming term will be Nina, Mika, Shawn, Kris, Jon, and Charlie.
The meeting was more than just boring votes though (we actually almost forgot to vote altogether!). It was a chance to set aside the screw drivers and thermal paste tubes to look around and thank some hardworking folks.
This month’s N00b hour is all about software! We’ll start with the basics of upgrading the existing software (packages) on your Linux computer by using its package manager. Then, we’ll look at ways to find and install new software for it. Next, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of using packages not provided by your operating system. Finally, we’ll very briefly learn that it is possible to install software without using your operating system’s package manager.
This workshop is free and open to the public. Don’t forget that you can see previous N00b Hours on the Free I.T. Athens YouTube page.
