The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, June 13.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Agile Software Development Environment

   Specialized and robust tools for Java development are available to
   the Open Source  community for everything from source code control,
   to document management,  to  running  your finished application.
   Weaving all these components together on a central development server
   for team of developers can  be  a  challenge.  These  frequently
   overlooked components in the development environment can make or break
   your project. Where do you keep the information everyone needs to see?
   Who is responsible for maintaining it?  How  do you know if code you
   just committed to the repository has impacted someone else's? You are
   writing JUnit tests, but how much of your project's  code  is actually
   being tested? With the focus on developer productivity, how can you
   address all of these questions without adding to the burden of just
   getting code written?

   In this presentation, Steve Moffat will show us how one project is
   doing it.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave.
   (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
   sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
   (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15pm, 
   so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30pm. Don't be late, or you may
   not get in.  (But don't come too early either, since security may not
   be there to let you in before 7:15 or so.)

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, either on Ellice
   Ave. or on some of the intersecting streets. Indoor parking is also
   available nearby, at Portage Place, for $3.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.

Also note that MUUG maintains two mailing lists, called "muug-announce"
and "roundtable".  If you're not already on these lists, we encourage you
to subscribe now:


The "muug-announce" list is used for monthly meeting announcements (such
as this one) as well as other important announcements of interest to MUUG

The "rountable" list is meant to be a forum for follow-ups to topics
discussed at the meetings, or for round-table-style discussion on other
topics that come up between meetings.  Of course, for this to be effective,
we need to reach a certain critical mass.  So, please subscribe, and stay
