ANNOUNCEMENT: Job Night @ Stammtisch! We are hosting a job night at this coming east valley Free Software Stammtisch on Tuesday, 2012Oct16. The goal is to bring in engineers and managers from groups that are hiring in addition to job seekers and recruiters. For technical positions it's much better to talk directly to the team that is hiring. Job Night @ Stammtisch is geek networking for finding the right person to join your team or to find the right team to join.
As this is geek networking in Arizona, suits are inappropriate. Sure, dress for success, but remember that the Stammtisch is a casual setting.
Free Software system administrators ( GNU/Linux, *BSD ) and developers ( Perl, C, Python, Ruby, Java, C++, etc ) are in high demand and companies are having trouble finding good candidates. One way for them to find good candidates is to go where the candidates are. Companies and their engineers should participate in local group mailing lists and events. They should also go to conferences such as SCaLE.
Job Night will run from 19:00 to 20:00, but everyone is welcome to hang out for the rest of Stammtisch if they'd like.
The Free Software Stammtisch is intentionally not tied to a particular group, but gets regular participation from members of groups such as the Phoenix Linux User Group (PLUG), League of Professional System Administrators (LOPSA), and the AZLoCo.
Iguana Macks is a commercial restaurant. The Stammtisch is a social event. There is no obligation to buy something, but we will NOT be providing no cost food or drinks. If you want something order it and pay for it :).
Job Night @ Stammtisch
19:00 - 20:00
The Free Software Stammtisch is a social environment for GNU, Linux, *BSD and Free Software enthusiasts. We start arriving at 19:00 and hang out until at least 22:00, with several of us often there until closing time.
If you are interested in starting a new Free Software Stammtisch, please contact der.hans, either in #PLUGaz on Freenode ( please specify a sane nickname and #PLUGaz as your channel ) or via identi.ca. You can also follow the Stammtisch at @flossstammtisch.
You might have heard it called the Linux Stammtisch, the GNU/Linux Stammtisch, the FOSS Stammtisch or the FLOSS Stammtisch. That's us, we're just name flexible :).
Iguana Macks changed ownership recently. The menu and food have returned to previous quality. They have also added a return customer program with good discounts.
Thanks to Brian the wifi at Iguana Macks is in great shape.
The East Valley Free Software Stammtisch has been meeting on the third Tuesday of every month for over a decade.
We meet in the meeting room in the back, might have to occasionally meet elsewhere if Iguana Macks needs to schedule a private party.
We have wireless access, good food and good drinks.
If you don't find parking in the front of Iguana Macks, there is plenty more behind the building.
LUGY in Prescott has a Free Software Stammtisch on the second Tuesday of the month.
The Free Software Stammtisch originally met at Bandersnatch in Tempe for many years. Unfortunately, Bandersnatch was closed and bulldozed :(. The Stammtisch wandered around a bit. It still meets in the east valley, but now in Chandler.
There used to be a Stammtisch in Avondale. The person leading it got a job out of state and was unable to continue leading it.
