Scratch Meeting links

We've uploaded the links for the last meeting on Scratch in a post in the forums here:


November PLUG Meeting: SCRATCH

Remember that PLUG now meets on the FIRST MONDAY of each month. Same location, same time.

Jason Wallwork will provide an introduction to Scratch, a visual programming language. Scratch was developed primarily to introduce K-12 students to the art of programming. However, it provides a low-barrier pathway for anyone interested in learning programming concepts. Jason will show you the basics.

Monday, November 2, 2015 - 7 PM

We have a Linux magazine swap at each meeting. Bring your recently-read Linux magazines to trade with other members. And we have a draw for an e-book of the winner's choice. Members get double the entries.

Applewood Manor
1500 Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
Parking is on the east (right) side. Entrance is at the front of the building. From the front, go down the hall to the right, and enter the last door on the left.

After the meeting, everyone is invited to Tim Horton's on MONAGHAN ROAD (just a stone's throw north of Lansdowne). They have free wireless in addition to their tasty doughnuts and coffee.

Hope you can make it!

Note: PLUG MUG nights continue every MONDAY night except the week of a regular PLUG meeting (as long as there is interest). Please check the forums for the weekly sign-up list.
