[PLUG] [plug-announce] PLUG West - Monday August 19, 2013 - Introduction to Project.Phree by Brent Saner (7pm at FIS in Malvern)

The Philadelphia Area Linux Users Group (PLUG) cordially invites
you to a PLUG West meeting on Monday, August 19 at FIS in Malvern,
PA from 7-9 pm.  This month, we welcome Brent Saner, who will be
speaking about Project.Phree. Brent has previously given a version
of this talk at PLUG North.

  What happens when three friends, some beer, cheap hardware, and big
  dreams get together? Hint: not a sitcom. Learn about the benefits (and
  pitfalls) of deploying a city-wide wireless mesh network.

  Using B.A.T.M.A.N.-Advanced, a provisioning system, and a ton of
  TP-Link WR1043ND routers along with a multitude of cheap high-gain
  antennas, it is possible to build a large-scale wireless mesh network
  that not only provides Internet access to impoverished neighborhoods but
  also to unite Philadelphia into a tighter-knit community. Iâ??ll be
  discussing what work has been done in this project so far (getting a
  little technical), how we accomplished it, future plans, and how you can
  get involved.

Interested in Linux, BSD, and Free Software? Whether you're
already an enthusiast or want to learn more, come and join us!
PLUG meetings are free and open to everyone, and anyone who is
curious is invited to attend.

The meeting will be at the FIS office in Malvern, PA:

  2 West Liberty Blvd, Suite 300
  Malvern, Pennsylvania 19355
