The July RRLug meeting went really well. We had 12 people attending.  We met at the usual time of  6:30pm in the Rasmussen College Boardroom. There were a few new faces in the crowd tonight. As usual we had several different presentations tonight:

  • Python Training – Peter Hedlund completed his Python series with lecture #3 dealing with python functions and libraries. He provided some really good code examples with explanation. Peter and Sam also introduced a couple of reference sites:
  • Brief Discussion of Online Learning Resources – We added two additional resources to the list of sites that provide online programming tutorials. When you have an opportunity take a look at the following two sites:
  • ThumbDrive Mechanics Redux – Sam Williams revisited his discussion from December with a way to test USB drives prior to use without the need to reformat them first. During the presentation Sam presented a script that he wrote to perform the testing and took the opportunity to discuss bash programming mechanics and gotchas with this particular application.
  • Current News – Towards the end of the meeting Sam lead a discussion on some of the more interesting Linux/FOSS news items from the past month including the recent concerns over online privacy.

We all had a great time. Hope to see you all next month for the July meeting on: 08/08/13.
