Hang out with us Friday, December 13

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Click here to join us! Delayed to 2 PM Central because of issues with Google hangouts.

We’re doing an online hang out on Friday, December 13. We’ll get started at 1:00 PM US Central time, and go for roughly an hour. I have a presentation for the first portion, going over the new features and changes in 2.1 release, and what we’re currently doing on the coming 2.2 release. Then I’ll present a tutorial on troubleshooting port forwarding. There will be time for audience questions as well.

This is the first in what will be a monthly recurring series. Each month, we’ll have a how to tutorial on a specific topic or area of the system, and updates on development and other happenings with the project. We have several topics in mind, but also welcome community suggestions on topics (if nothing else, that will help us prioritize).
