On the 23rd of November, Linux Users Victoria Inc, in conjunction with Melbourne Wireless, will be holding an installfest at Strathcona Girls Grammar School in Canterbury. An installfest is an event where people new to Linux are able bring their computers along to get Linux installed and configured by a group of more experienced Linux users.
Melbourne Wireless will be helping to install PC based wireless access points, as well to build and test antennas/cantennas, attempt to setup a basic mesh topology network, and stream voice and data services. For details see the Melbourne Wireless announcement.
To make the event a successful one, LUV needs as many people as possible to volunteer with helping out. As well as general installation volunteers, we need people to handle the following duties:
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to assume any of these duties or if you would like to sponsor LUV for this event.
There will be other things that need arranging, namely entry fees and obtaining blank CDs. These will need to be organised closer to the day.
Strathcona use Linux on most of their desktop machines, so this will be a good chance for LUV members to see Linux in action at a school environment.
