Location: Dymon Storage Boardroom, 110 Didsbury Road
Note: We currently do not have a fixed location for the monthly meetings, so this month it will be in Kanata. In November and December it will be at Dymon Storage on Carling Avenue (Carling at the Queensway)
This month we will be having an introductory talk on the arduino platform by Peter Sjöberg.
There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 6:00 to 7:00 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.
After the main talk, there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a standard offering, just look for Scott after the talk and we can go from there.
Peter is going to give an introduction to the platform, go over the installation of the IDE and show some of the things you can accomplish with the platform.
We will not have a lot of room to break up, however we have the room until just before 9:00, so if anyone wants to have a discussion after the presentation, we can attempt to accommodate a couple of different topics.

We do not have a specific topic this evening, so it is a free forum night. If you have questions, bring them and perhaps the collective experience of the group will be able to answer them.
In addition, this will be a hardware swap meet. If you have some unused hardware lying about, you can bring it along and see if anyone is interested in taking it away to a new home.
Given the new location and short notice, we will not be having the pre-meeting help session, however that does not mean we will not entertain such questions as part of the general meeting.
We will also entertain ideas for future meetings and volunteer speakers.

Location: Strathcona Park Ottawa
This is a casual, family oriented event. Bring kids, significant others, devices, laptops, battery operated projects, your homemade drone or whatever suits your fancy. Bring some food to share and a fun attitude.
LITW typically occurs around the same time as the Ottawa Linux Symposium, so we will probably have a few extras from the symposium attend as well. Come out and meet some new people and old friends.
The board will bring a cooler of pop/juice/water, some paper plates, utensils, paper towels and anything else we think would be a good idea.
If you are planning on attending, please RSVP to the board with a count of how many people you are bringing so we have an idea as to how much to bring.
Looking forward to another successful LITW and we will see you there!

Location: Smoque Shack
Unfortunately, we lost our venue this month due to Shopify's Hacker Week events. As a consolation, we have a reservation across the street at the Smoque Shack at 7:00.
Come out for discussions, food, beverages, break-out groups or whatever you feel like.
This also means we will not have a one hour pre-meeting item from 6:00 to 7:00 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, etc.
