Welcome to MDLUG!

What's New?

Items of interest for the MDLUG community

We've started planning a project to create a text-based adventure game using Python 3. Also please note that the November meeting has been moved to the first Saturday because of a scheduling conflict.

The website now uses TLS. Looks nice, doesn't it?

Monthly Meetings

Second Saturdays

MDLUG meets monthly at 12:00 pm to around 3:00 pm on the Second Saturday. Each meeting usually begins with MDLUG business and/or an open discussion. The formal presentation starts at 1:00 pm. After the meeting, some of us usually go to a local restaurant.

We are now meeting at the William P. Faust Public Library in Westland. There is plenty of free parking at the facility.

Next Meeting

November 3, 2018

Using git on a Collaborative Project

Note that this meeting will be one week earlier than normal on November 3.

Carl will give a presentation on git as a tool to facilitate a group of people working on a shared project. He will also demonstrate how to use the git repository on the mdlug server.

We will have plenty of time for discussion on all things open source. If you have questions about Linux, bring your questions (and perhaps your computer) to this meeting!
