Introduction

All Linux lovers, and supporters of open source code and free software, in the Kanto area (or anywhere else) are invited to attend the next Tokyo Linux Users Group meeting. Membership is open to anyone. There are currently no membership dues or entrance fees.

TLUG meetings are traditionally small and unstructured (VERY CASUAL). Most of the benefit of the meeting comes from chatting with other Linux users and having informal discussions.

As a general rule, the Technical Meetings are held on the 2nd SAT of the month and the Nomikai Meetings are usually held on the 3rd FRI, every month. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, so it is best to keep an eye on the mailing list, or check back here for date/venue changes as the date approaches.

Presentations
"Bioinformatics as Viewed by a Computer Scientist" by Raymond Wan

Raymond Wan will introduce the field of bioinformatics (or computational biology) from the perspective of someone with a computing background. Since no knowledge in biology is assumed, I will begin with some basic concepts and then move into the types of data being analyzed by others. I will end with an overview of "second generation sequencing" and how it relates with my current work.

Other items on the agenda are:
  1. Introduction of new members
  2. News about Linux/Open Source, general announcements, Q&A
  3. Auction (bring any gear that would would like to donate to TLUG)

This event is open to all Linux users and friends, and is to promote casual Linux (and non-Linux) related discussions over a few cold ones. Even if you're not a Linux user or a LUG member, but want to hang out with Linux people, please come.

To help us make sure that there will be room for everyone to seat, please register your attendance in Doorkeeper.

Even if you want to come at the last minute it's okay - we may have to squeeze a bit, but please come!
