Hi people! For this month’s Launceston meeting, we’ll be taking a look at Bash shell scripting. It doesn’t matter swhether you’re an old hand or a complete noob, there should be something in this talk for everyone. We’ll be starting with simple abstract scripts to demonstrate techniques, and moving up to useful practical examples for everyday use.
22-24 Patterson St
- Saturday 30th March
As always, everybody is welcome to come along and join the discussion. Hope to see you there!
This month sees the return of TasPubLUG in Hobart and a chance to talk about
all things related to free and open source software, hardware, and culture.
- 6:30pm, Thursday 21 March 2019
- Hope and Anchor Tavern (65 Macquarie St, Hobart)
Let John know if you are planning to come
along. If we hear from more than a handful of people that they are coming then
we’ll book a table, otherwise we will just rock up see what is available.
Looking forward to seeing everyone next week on Thursday.
There was recently a query about the possibility of changing the day of the
month that the Hobart TasLUG meetings are held. Given this it seemed like it
would be a good opportunity to do a general survey of when people are available
to attend meetings.
With this in mind a survey has been set up for people to fill
out. For each day of the month you can
select whether you can make it to meetings (green tick), can’t make it on that
day (red cross), or would be a maybe (amber tick in parens).
It would be great if everyone interested in attending Hobart meetings could
enter their preferences, especially if the current meetings day makes it
difficult to attend.
Please note that this survey is for informational purposes only and will only
be one factor taken into consideration when determining the best meeting day
The holiday season is well a truly behind us and it is now time for the first
Hobart TasLUG meeting of the year. This month’s meeting will feature two talks:
LoRaWAN IoT - The hardware components you can add to your microcontrollers to
join TheThingsNetwork (TTN), how LoRaWAN works and collecting data from your devices.
Simple backups for home servers and workstations.
The venue for this month will be Enterprize Hobart:
- Thursday 21 February 2019 - 6:00pm for a 6:30pm start
- Enterprize - Hobart
5th floor, Hobart City Council Building
24 Davey Street (map)
Note: the doors inside the foyer will be locked, so you will need to use the
intercom to let us know to buzz you in. However, if you arrive after 6:30pm,
then we’ll leave a note with a phone number to call as the intercom isn’t near
where the talks will be.
Enterprize provide a selection of alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks and coffee
pods for the appropriate donation, as well as free instant coffee and tea. So
come at 6:00pm, get a drink, and have a bit of a mingle before the talks start
at 6:30pm. We will also be heading out to find somewhere to eat afterwards for
I would like to to extend a big thank you to
Enterprize for generously allowing
us to use their space to hold regular meetings.
Hi people! For this month’s Launceston meeting, we’ll be taking a look at the sculpting tools included with the Free/Open Source 3D creation suite Blender. We’ll also be doing a live demonstration, creating a character (or as much of one as we can squeeze into the meeting) from scratch.
22-24 Patterson St
- Saturday 23rd February
This meeting’s presentation may be focused toward newcomers, but as always, everybody is welcome to come along and join the discussion. Hope to see you there!
For various reasons, it doesn’t make sense for us to run a meeting on the 26th of January, so we’ll be skipping this month’s meeting.
Apologies for the late notice, and to anybody who was hoping to catch up. Looking forward to seeing everybody next month!
The end of the year is fast approaching and before everyone starts winding down for the holiday season there is one last opportunity for the Hobart TasLUG community to catch up for an end of year dinner.
- 6:30pm, Thursday 29 November
- Amigo Mexican Restaurant
If you plan on coming along, then please RSVP to John by Tuesday 27
November so he can make the appropriate booking.
If Amigos are unable to fit us in, the backup option will be Mother India just down the road.
There will be no Hobart TasLUG meeting this coming Thursday. The two speakers
we had lined up for this months meeting will both be out of the state this
Thursday and we haven’t had any time to organise anyone to replace them.
However it is getting close to the end of the year and there has been some talk
about having some sort of end of year dinner. Our current thinking is that we
have this on Thursday 29 November so as to avoid the silly season that is December.
A couple of suggestions for places to go for the dinner have been the Tacos or
Amigo’s Mexican restaurants, but please get in touch with John if you have any
other suggestions or preferences. Firmer details will be posted closer to the date.
This month is TasPubLUG time again. We will be heading to the pub to talk about
Free and Open Source software, hardware, and culture… or just to generally
hang out and having something to eat and drink. This time I’ve randomly pick
the Brunswick Hotel as the venue:
- 6:30pm, Thursday 18 October
- Brunswick Hotel (67 Liverpool Street, Hobart)
If you are planning to come along (even for just a quick drink) please let John
know by Tuesday so the appropriate booking can be made if needed.
Hi people! For this month’s Launceston meeting, we will be taking a look at the
F/OSS desktop Geographic Information System,
QGIS, which supports viewing, editing and
analysis of geospatial data. In this talk we will demonstrate how to connect to
a variety of different data sources for displaying within a map, as well as
adding in new data and editing existing data.
22-24 Patterson St
- Saturday 29th September
As always, everybody is welcome to come along and join the discussion. Hope to
see you there!
