Definitely. I'll be going early to do an equipment check, to have better audio and video quality.

I'll make sure to mention this when I send a reminder to the mailing list.
Does anybody else need to carpool? Please let me know so I can also mention you.

I'm in, you guys are awesome. If you need help with setup, logistics, please let me know!

Tarek: It depends on what you're looking to get out of it. Programmers have interesting ways of thinking about problems and that could be useful to learn even if the actual technical details don't mean anything to you.

Also, there are always interesting people at LebGeeks meetups and that's worth it even if you don't listen to the talks!

Hi All-
As always, ahlein bi AltCity.

Samer, venam, we have some people coming to AltCity on Friday eve (for a separate event, though maybe we'll try to get them to check out part of the LebGeeks event), I think from Tripoli. Could be a *possible* ride link. Samer, can you link me and venam by email so I can do an email intro to the possible ride-sharers?

Cheers.

Not a programmer, but interested in the Pi media player part.
I'll try to make it. Could be a good chance to dust off my coding skills

@Ra8: I won't be able to attend. Can you tell us a bit more about your talk? "Dynamic Programming" can mean anything.

It's a technique to solve big problems by dividing it into smaller ones. But with dynamic programming you only solve each smaller problem once. You can read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_programming. Or wait till the video comes out. I can send you my presentation if you want to also.

Probably in a couple of weeks. I've done good progress on them already, but polishing them and uploading hundreds of megabytes will take some time.
