What: A Stammtisch is a gathering of people with a common interest, so there is no formal presentation for this PLUG meeting.
Please come and join us for some good conversation over good food and drinks, which are both optional... Friends and family are all welcome.
Come see where the conversation leads this time, it doesn't just stick exclusively with Linux. Us Linux geeks are interested in all sorts of things tech, so the conversation always leads to a good time.
If you have any problems, feel free to bring in your machine and we'll see what we can do to fix your problem...
Quarterly ( Januaries, Aprils, Julys and Octobers ) there is a Jobs Night event at 18:00 before Stammtisch.
Getting to know others ( networking ) has always been part of Stammtisch ( the conference hallway track without the conference ). The Jobs Nights events came about due for requests for a more directed approach to job networking from both hiring employers and those seeking new jobs. It was therefore natural to create standalone events that merge into Stammtisch.
Januaries and Julys host resume events while Aprils and Octobers have jobs networking events.
Resume Review Nights
Bring your resume and questions for review by tech industry veterans. We can help with content, display and editing. If you regularly read resumes, edit or help people write, please stop in to help.
Jobs Networking Nights
We encourage engineers from groups that are hiring and hiring managers to attend. The goal is for prospective candidates to learn about the company and the actual job and for the team to have a chance to meet prospective candidates. Interviews are bi-directional, so are job searches.
When: Third Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM (People usually start arriving as early as 6 though)
Where: Boulders on Southern, 1010 W Southern Ave, Mesa, Arizona 85210
