Installfest on Saturday, April 2, 2011

It's getting closer. On Saturday, 10:00am our installfest will start at the Hackspace. Everybody is welcome to bring their machine and we will be happy to help and guide you through the installation and setup of Linux.

But the installfest has now an additional focus.


The CharLUG is currently preparing for an installfest.

What is an installfest?
Wikipedia has a nice definition:
An Installfest (a portmanteau of installation and festival) is an event, generally sponsored by a local Linux User Group, university or LAN party, at which people get together to do mass installations of computer operating systems or software, most often Linux and other open source software.

Seeing the success of the University City mini meets I decided to schedule one for South Charlotte.
