Mini GGD meetup on the 28th of May at ANU
Hi everyone,

It's been a bit quiet on the GGD Canberra front recently (there are machinations afoot, so please hang in there. We'll be back bigger and better than ever in August!).

But, if you've been missing the girl geek love, then why not hop along to a mini GGD on the 28th of May? I haven't pinned down event details yet, but would love to hear from you if you think you could make it.

Here's the details so far ... the Canberra Linux Users Group is holding a "Beginner CLUG" at the ANU on Thursday the 28th at 7pm. Yours truly will be giving a speech entitled "10 Reasons why you do not want to install Linux. Ever". I know of at least one other girl geek who wants to attend the meeting, and we were discussing joining up for dinner beforehand. Of course, there's no pressure to get along to the meeting, but if you want to swing by the ANU after work (around 5:30/6pm) then I'd love to have a few drinks and something to eat with you. Venue to be decided by consensus :)

If you can make it, just drop your name in the comments. I'd love to catch up with you all!


Update 19 May 2009:

Just a quick note to say that the CLUG meeting is not a GGD event, anyone and everyone is welcome.

The GGD event is the meetup before the CLUG meeting, and the usual rules apply - open to all women, and men must have a Girl Geek to escort them.

Also, I'm not very familiar with ANU meal options (it's been years since I was last studying there!) ... does anyone have any good suggestions?

You can find out more about CLUG on their website


OK, here's the details you've been waiting for!

We'll meet at 5:30 in Union Court at the Sizzle Cafe. We can then eat there, or move on to somewhere mutually agreeable. If you can't find us, then please call my mobile on 0410 500 659.

I would also like to note that there will be pizza offered for a small fee at the CLUG meeting, so you can either eat beforehand (if pizza isn't your thing), or choose to eat pizza later on. Either way, I would love to see you for coffee and conversation.

See you all on Thursday!

    Naveen, will you make it to the dinner beforehand too?

    I'll be at both the dinner and the meeting. In Union Court the Sizzle Café (Japanese) is open and their might be something still open in the Union Building. The bar/cafe at University House is open, but that is a long way from where the CLUG talk is.

    Excellent! Thanks for that Brenda!

    My vote would be with the Japanese place ... all those in favour say aye? ;)
