We'll have 2 presentations with month. One from Phil Waclawski on Krita held over from last month and the other from der.hans on Asciidoc
Phil Waclawski: Krita Basics - Tools, Layers, Coloring etc
Krita is a powerful painting program, designed for graphic designers and general artists. I will introduce the basic features it provides, along with some special filters, including G'mic. I will however not be able to demonstrate any artistic skills :)
Phil has been a faculty member, focusing on open source software at MCC for nearly two decades.
This summer, Phil will once again be offering a "MCC Multimedia Madness" summer camp for 6-8th graders. Over the two weeks I will cover a wide range of open source software, including GIMP, Inkscape, Krita, Audacity, Blender, Hydrogen Drum Kit, Tux Guitar, Openshot, Linux Multimedia Studio, work with green screen and more.
For hobbies, Phil has too many. Blacksmithing, archery, Leatherworking, Wood Working, Jewelry, Sound Recording/editing and SCUBA diving. Phil is also learning to play the Bass.
Phil has been using linux at home for desktops and servers since 1994.
der.hans: AsciiDoc - Plainish text for fancy output
AsciiDoc is a great text tool for documentation from simple notes to books. A text editor is all it takes. Since it's all text, AsciiDoc lends itself to revision control and revision control WebUI systems like GitLab and GitHub support it.

In his free time, der.hans endeavors to help build community through user group and conference leadership. He is chairman of the Phoenix Linux User Group (PLUG), BoF organizer for the Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE) and founder of the Free Software Stammtisch.
