Regular meeting business

(e.g., Upcoming GIS events/conferences, next meeting presenters or topics, discussions, updates, etc.)

  • New Meeting Place - possibly meeting in different places each month.
  • We no longer meet at Collective Agency
  • We have several options that seem possible
    • Wm's office (flightstats) potentially too, some receptiveness to moving around, Darrell's Office (Renewable Funding) next meeting, third Wednesday could let us have meetings in Nov and Dec,

Git, Github and affiliated tools - Darrell

  • GitHub and the Git version control system, two tools at the heart of open source collaboration. Even if you're not a software developer this will be a great primer on what makes open source projects tick. Git veterans, bring your knowledge and stories of the wild west days of Subversion, CVS and dare I say it, Microsoft VSS.
