The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, November 18.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:


    This month, Brad Vokey will give a demonstration of LiveCode:
    an open source, cross-platform, rapid application development
    language. LiveCode evolved from MetaCard (the original Unix
    HyperCard clone) into becoming a true cross-platform IDE
    capable of running on iOS, Android, OS X, Windows, and several
    variations of Unix including Linux, Solaris, and BSD. It can be
    used to write mobile, desktop and server/CGI applications and
    is the most widely used HyperCard/HyperTalk clone.

    LiveCode uses a high level, English-like programming language
    that is dynamically typed and tightly integrated to your
    program's interface. The language and compile-free work flow
    generate code that is self-documenting and very easy for casual
    programmers to comprehend.

    As this month's RTFM topic, Wyatt Zacharias will compare and
    contrast the curl(1) and wget(1) commands.

    Please note change in meeting date for this month.

    This month's meeting is also the Annual General Meeting, where
    we will have an election (most likely by acclamation) for the
    new MUUG board of directors for the 2014-2015 year.

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 *NEW* meeting location for this month: Room 1L08,
    Lockhart Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave.
    between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

    Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
    on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
    or ask a security guard.
