Tom McHugo’s (87 Macquarie Street, Hobart)

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 those interested.

I would like to to extend a big thank you to Enterprize for generously allowing us to use their space to hold regular meetings into the future.

Hobart TasPubLUG: Thursday 15 March - Shambles Brewery

The last Hobart TasPubLUG was only a few weeks ago, but we thought we would try to get the Hobart meet-ups back to their regular 3rd Thursday of the month and this month the 3rd Thursday is an early one… Oh well.

This month we will be heading to the pub again to talk about any topics related to Free and Open Source software, hardware, and culture that take our fancy.

There was a special request for this month that people bring along any hardware projects they are working on, or new gadgets they have recently acquired, and give a bit of an explanation about what they are being used for. If you have a new single board computer, dev board, crypto card, or yubi key, etc. bring it along, we would be keen to hear about it.

When:
6:30pm, Thursday 22 March 2018
Where:
Shambles Brewery (222 Elizabeth Street Hobart)
http://www.shamblesbrewery.com.au/
Bring:
Any new hardware projects or gadgets.

We look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday.
