-- WUGLUG Lightning Talks

The Warwick University GNU/Linux User Group (WUGLUG) will be holding lightning
talks this Wednesday 31st October on the following topics:

* Daniel Watkins (Odd_Bloke) on the LaTeX Beamer presentation tool
* Chris West (Faux) on the Choob IRC bot
* Chris Lamb (lamby) on the Git revision control system
* Tim Monks (monk) on the Vim text editor

The meeting will be starting at 19:00 in A0.23. However, as it is a little
tricky to find, a small group will be meeting people outside the Department
of Computer Science at around 18:50, intending to leave at around 18:55.
