Sean Swehla, IBM

Git is one of the leading distributed source code control systems. Originally developed to specifically help with workflows in the Linux kernel, git has seen rapid acceptance on a number of other projects due to it's flexibility and speed. Git takes a bit of education to use effectively, which this talk will hopefully provide.

Sean Swehla by day is your average Architect for the IBM Worldwide Design Centers, but by night makes sure he earns the name Thor not just because of his viking god resemblance. Sean has notably been using git to drive development of android group projects for the Squidwrench Android Study Collaborative.

Lightning Talks

  • E-ink Android - Sean Dague
  • Building a custom Unity Lens - Sean Dague
  • Why you should care about jQuery.Deferred() - Chris Joslyn *postponed*

Before the main talk we will do a series of lightning talks (up to 3), each 10 minutes or less, on something Open Source related. It could be a fun new program, a book, a blog post, or really anything you think the wider MHVLUG community would find some interest in. People that have posted their talk subject to the website in advance have priority. Time permitting, we'll also take impromptu lightning talks from the floor.

The meeting space opens up at 5pm for pre meeting general discussion, question asking, show and tell, and setup. All are welcome to join. If you are planning on using the projector for your lightning talk, please arrive at 5:30 to ensure we can work out any kinks with the projector prior to the meeting.

The meeting will take place at Taylor 203 - Vassar College on Wednesday, May 2 at 6 pm.

All meetings are free and open to the public, and everyone from all levels of expertise and interest in Linux and Open Source Software are encouraged to attend (and bring a friend or two)! After each meeting ends everyone is welcome to join in on an informal dinner gathering at the Palace Diner on Washington St. This is a great opportunity to interact with members of the local Linux community, and a forum where questions and comments are strongly welcomed.

11:00 - 5:00
OLB 205

This is the fifth installment of the Android Development Day. Anyone interested in Android programming is welcomed to come out and share your projects and experiences.

There are representatives of all skill levels from complete beginners that need help installing the proper tools, all the way up to authors of mature Android apps which are available today.

Bring a computer and, optionally, an Android device and cable and work on your personal project, check out other peoples' projects, and trade stories and advice about Android development in general. Like last time, several developers who are participating in sqwrGameworks, our group project, will be using some of this time to sync up and work out issues and direction face to face. If you're interested in participating in the sqwrGameworks project, this is a good opportunity to meet your would-be teammates.

NOTE: If you're interested in ADD4 but would like to get a head start, check out the group's Android Resources.

“VC Squared”

The Office of Alumnae/i Affairs and Development and the Vassar College Venture Co-op host “VC Squared,” an inaugural entrepreneurship program that brings together entrepreneurial alumnae/i and students. They will gather on campus to meet each other and to discuss their ideas and concerns related to the formation of an entrepreneurship program and network.

Right now, students on campus are re-starting the entrepreneurship club while alumnae/i off campus are working to build a stronger and more active networking group focused on entrepreneurship and business education. Alumnae/i are invited to come to campus on that day and help make this event a success.

Please visit for more information. All alumnae/i interested in this topic are invited to participate.

RSVP here if you plan to attend.
