Computers for Refugees

We are getting Linux installed on computers so they can be given to the Syrian refugees. We have a car pool that will be gathering by the panda in the tmcb at 9:30, or you can just meet us there at the brc. If you come late, you may have to get a hold of someone to come open the door. We will have general conference on the projector while we work.

IRC Meeting

IRC is the medium of choice when it comes to talking to the developers of open source projects (as well as many other communities). We will also talk about some cool tools to work with IRC, such as znc, irccloud, and all of the tricks of how to get them to work together.
Come learn how to get connected with the open source community!

Install Fest

STEM Fair Volunteer Opportunity

Hey guys! You may not know this, but since the Linux club was started last fall semester, we have been unfunded and have relied on the generous support from Utah Open Source, Bluehost, Suse and some of the club presidency members. (Thanks guys!)

But now we have an amazing opportunity to get some self-earned funding for our club! BYUSA has promised that any left over funds from the upcoming STEM fair will be divided between any clubs who have members come and help with the event! The more people who show, the more money we will receive.

We are asking for volunteers to come and help out with both the STEM fair and our club. As a note, this will also be a good opportunity for volunteers to rub shoulders with a number of the employers present at the fair. If you are interested in signing up, follow the link and make sure you sign in as a Linux club member.
