Hi everyone --

Mark your calendars! Next Tuesday, November 11, we will be having a 
meeting at INOC, 80 State St in Albany, starting at 6:45 PM. We hope to 
see everyone out for our return to regular monthly meetings!

There will be give-aways at this meeting! I have review copies of "The 
Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System, 2nd Ed." to 
give out.



Giving your first tech talk: an analysis of an OpenBSD talk

Whether it's for work, CDBUG, or anywhere in-between, giving talks is a 
skill everyone should have in their back pocket. This talk reviews an 
OpenBSD talk given in October at RPISEC, the computer security club at 
RPI. It details aspects the speaker thought went well and what did not, 
followed by an overview of how the speaker approaches giving talks. It 
will end with a discussion on how to begin giving your own talks in a 
no-pressure, supportive atmosphere such as CDBUG.

Speaker Bio:
Brian is a Ph.D. student in the Science and Technology Studies 
department at RPI, interested in studying local community formation 
around Free and Open Source Software projects. He is also an OpenBSD 
developer, focusing primarily on ports.
