October 12th: Engaging Young People in Technology

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

The next WYLUG meeting is on Monday the 12th October at Old Broadcasting House. The talk is “Engaging Young People in Technology” by Tim Dobson from DFEY-NW.

He’ll be talking about what “Digital Freedom in Education and Youth (DFEY)” is all about and how free software communities can engage with young people.

This talk will be recorded and posted online under a Creative Commons Licence.

Tim is an active member of the Manchester Free Software group and is well known at many other technical events. Having just finished his A levels, in his spare time, he enjoys dinghy sailing.

The talks starts at 7:00pm, but the room will be open for coffee, tea and chat from 6:30pm. Afterwards, we usually go to The Fenton pub, across the road from OBH, for more geeky chatter.
