This is not a presentation - but a working party to fix things up, and share knowledge of how to do this. Come along to find out what makes Debian work (no, seriously). Interstate DDs are welcome to come and holiday in Perth for the weekend.

> The Quiz Night was lots of fun last year! Form tables of 4 with your friends and answer questions from the Open Source world.  We'll be selling tickets at the door this year at $5 each to cover the costs of some of the prizes we'll have. Come and show off what you know! (No video stream from the pub!)

> Paul is a Perl hacker, and gave a keynote at Linux.conf.au 2012 in Ballarat on programming people. He works for Perl Training Australia, writes in The Perl Journal, contributes to Perl core, and has a bunch of code on CPAN. Note that this is on the FIRST Tuesday of the month, not the second. Live video stream should be available.
> June Presentation: Amazon Web Services (tentative), Tuesday June 12th, from 7pm @ City West Lotteries House, 2 Delhi St, West Perth
> Other than the Quiz Night, these events are free to attend - bring friends, colleagues, or people you'd like to impress. All these events are in the PLUG calendar on www.plug.org.au - including directions to the venue(s). As always, we need volunteers to help organise events, and we're constantly having to try and convince our on-list lurkers to pay their membership fees (hint hint - $20/year full, $10/year concession; http://www.plug.org.au/membership/)!
