WUGLUG Lightning Talks

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

of Computer Science at around 18:50, intending to leave at around 18:55.
