In case you still do not know what BarCamp is..

BarCamp (often: unconference) is a gathering of users with public workshops and lectures, their content and progress are established by participants at the beginning of the meeting and are further developed during the gathering itself. BarCamp serves to share ideas, to discuss, for learning, for development and the product of this work can already partially be seen at the end of the event, by demonstrating concrete results (e.g. joint workshop program).

Linux Install Day: Saturday, 14th March 2015. from 10:00 to 14:00 hour

Installation and setup Linux by members of LUGoNS

Where, what, who?
Linux Install Day will be held on Saturday, 14th March 2015. from 10.00-14.00pm at the Faculty of Technical Sciences (FTN) in Novi Sad. The idea is to help you to install Linux. For those who choose that we install Linux for them, they will receive from us installation DVD or CD, if we have them in stock.

Why are we doing this?
Many times people have asked us why we wanted to donate some knowledge, and then to resolve the mystery. We are not masochists who like to charge their work. Simply, if you want to do, (I mean business and jobs under Linux) we have to show people that this operating system is not a chore. The more of us there Linux users, the greater the chances for a job in a Linux environment. Another reason is that it is nice to help, such as people and helped us to stand on our feet with Linux.

What to bring?
First, take the good will and patience! Since there will be relatively few members LUGoNS, we can not guarantee that your machine will be taken care first. There are just few technical requests:

  • First, If you make a desktop computer, carry case, monitor, keyboard, mouse and all cables
  • Second ,on your computer, make sure to / leave a blank, unformatted partition of at least 10GB

Django workshop #1 – Python web development – Intro Django tutorial 15. 11. 2014. 17h @ FTN classroom 203

Django – Python web framework
http://djangoproject.com

Requirements: bring your laptop, extension cables, novice level of
programming
FAQ: It’s not required to know python.

Python is pretty much a mature programming language. It’s used in large
variety of tasks like user applications, science, a scripting laguage
and in web development. In this workshop we’ll present you the Django, a
Python framework for web applications. Django isn’t a CMS, blog engine
or wiki. Django is a set of libraries and tools which will help you to
build a web application, web service or simply a web site by your
personal preference.

Django is a FLOSS project, developed by the community and the source
code is of course available. If you’re not sure if you will like it or
you don’t believe us that it’s worth considering, here’s few interesting
features:

– Integrated ORM (object-relational mapper)
– Well developed MVC
– Jinja like template engine
– Integrated support for testing
– Auto-generated admin interface
– Support for validating and generating HTML forms from data models
– DB scheme migration based on changes in data models
– Internationalization
– Built-in dev web server

It’s the Python. What else? (:

The idea is that in the first Django workshop we introduce you to Django
through standard tutorial and begin a talk on deployment Python based
web projects to a production server. We hope you will like Django and
Python, and that you will find nice use for it and then that you will
share those experiences with us in some future events.lugons

OpenStreetMap

Free Map of The World

http://osm.org

We invite you to the second OpenStreetMap workshop. Workshop is organized in cooperation with the Department of Informatics, Faculty of Technical Sciences.

OpenStreetMap is a map of the world which is free to change. Made by people like you. OpenStreetMap is an international project aimed for creating and using free geographic data. The project allows the use of data collected by the community, that in the world, currently has over one million active users. The idea is to eventually create a free map of the world, which will be available to everyone. OSM ( OpenStreetMap ) is a free map of the world which can be edited by anyone. All collected data is available and licensed under the Open Database License 1.0 ( Odlb ) .

If everyone would just mapped its city, neighbourhood or street soon we will mapped the whole world. It is an idea that has emerged from OpenStreetMap project. The workshop will be doing data mapping and data entry on the map using the JOSM application.
