 Subject: [Debian-NYC] Invitation to the January 18th Debian-NYC Novice Night

 For wide distribution (dates corrected to January 18th):


 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 <rkd at zgib dot net>.

 Where and When: Eyebeam, Tuesday, January 18th, 2011. Come and go as
 you like, recommended arrival times are 18:30 to 19:00.

 Getting there: See Eyebeam directions. Eyebeam is on the west side of
 Manhattan, in Chelsea. (540 W. 21st Street, (between 10th and 11th
 Avenues) New York, NY 10011) A/C/E/1/2/3/L trains are the closest, and
 Eyebeam is right next the Hudson River Greenway.

 Contact: IRC at #debian-nyc on ; ;
 or Richard Darst (rkd at zgib dot net).

 Subject: Perl Seminar Tuesday Jan 18:  Making Sense of 'make' (bring laptops)
 Date: Thu, 13 Jan 2011 22:45:09 -0500

 Our January meeting will be this coming Tuesday:

 Tuesday January 18 2011, 6:15 pm.
 NYPC User Group office
 481 8th Ave
 Ramada New Yorker, Suite 550
 btw. West 34 & 35 Sts, Manhattan

 "Making Sense of 'make':  A Workshop Session"

 In a Perl Seminar NY "workshop session,"  instead of having one person
 standing up in front of an audience with a more-or-less polished
 slideshow presentation, we encourage people to bring their laptops to
 the meeting, set-up the folding tables and hack collectively on a

 The problem we tackle this month:  make.

 If you're like me, you (a) have used 'make' indirectly hundreds of
 times when installing modules from CPAN with ExtUtils::MakeMaker; (b)
 have used 'make' -- probably in a rote way -- to build Perl, Parrot,
 Python or some other application from its source code; and (c) have
 found 'make' mysterious and daunting.

 The purpose of this Perlsemny Workshop Session would be to increase
 our collective understanding of, and decrease our individual fear of,

 We will look at examples of 'make' and Makefiles of the kind Perl  
 programmers are likely to encounter.  We will work through several  
 exercises designed to reduce our qualms about using 'make' and to  
 increase our make-fu.

 We encourage you to bring (a) Makefiles that your have written; (b)  
 your favorite (!) Makefiles written by others; (c) your questions  
 about, and fears of, 'make'.  And BRING YOUR LAPTOPS so that we can  
 work through exercises.

 Thank you very much.

 Jim Keenan
