An Invitation to Debian Novice Night - December 1, 2010

It may be short notice, but if you are new to Linux, interested in Debian and live or work in the New York metro-area, check out Novice Night. It's coming up this Wednesday. Info below is from Debian-NYC.

Debian-NYC would like to invite you to our next Novice Night.

Novice Nights are Debian-NYC's meetings for everyone. If you would like to install Debian, come on by. If you would like help with configuring or making Debian do what you need, we can do that too. If you want to hang out with Debianistas to pick up tips and tricks, come on by. We can also provide some help with other derivatives of Debian, such as Ubuntu.

Novice Nights are free-form: bring your questions, and you'll be able to talk to people to answer them. There isn't a set structure here or presentation, so you can come and go as you would like. There may be mini-presentations throughout the night. We will be able to help with new installations or fixing/configuring existing ones. We can make installation CDs or USB drives. You should bring your computers you would like help on (and your friends!).

We welcome groups. If you have a group attending, feel free to contact us in advance so that we can prepare something for you. If you have questions, please direct them to Richard Darst .

Where and When: Eyebeam, Wednesday, December 1st, 2010, 18:00.

Getting there: See Eyebeam directions. Eyebeam is on the west side of
Manhattan, in Chelsea. A/C/E/1/2/L trains are the closest.
