All Linux lovers, and supporters of open source code and free software, in the Kanto area (or anywhere else) are invited to attend the next Tokyo Linux Users Group meeting. Membership is open to anyone. There are currently no membership dues or entrance fees.

TLUG meetings are traditionally small and unstructured (VERY CASUAL). Most of the benefit of the meeting comes from chatting with other Linux users and having informal discussions.

As a general rule, the Technical Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of odd-numbered months and the Nomikai Meetings are usually held on the 2nd Friday of even-numbered months. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, so it is best to keep an eye on the mailing list, or check back here for date/venue changes as the date approaches.

"Version Control Done Right" by Andreas Kieckens

A brief explanation of what Version control is and why Andreas uses GIT and not another one. Then he'll describe a successful GIT branching system in detail and explain why you should use it.

"Debian on the Desktop: A Guide for Ubuntu Refugees" by Travis Cardwell

Many desktop environments these days offer premature mobile- oriented user interfaces, gluttonous resource utilization, and over- minimization. This talk gives tips for overcoming these issues by setting up a modern desktop on Debian 7. Topics to be covered include the testing distribution, backports, multiarch, third-party software installation, and alternative window managers.
