Chicago LUG/Hack meeting this weekend

We'll be meeting up at Software Freedom Day at FreeGeek Chicago this Saturday, September 21. The event is from 10 am to 5 pm. You can R.S.V.P. here. I'll be doing  a short presentation at 4 pm on getting involved in Free Software. There will be a lot a neat talks, some hacking,  and a CryptoParty. Next month we'll resume our regularly scheduled programming :)

And OpenHatch Event for Women next week
I've also been working with OpenHatch and University of Illinois at Chicago's Women in Computer Science group to plan an Open Source comes to Campus event for Women. It is going to be a beginner-level immersion event to teach Chicago area women students to contribute to Open Source projects. It will be happening at UIC on Wednesday, September 23rd and Thursday, September 24th, from 5 pm to 9 pm. You can sign up for the event here.

Cheers, and hope to see you all around in the next few weeks :)
