Typical Presentation Setup

Typical Presentation Setup

Thank you for offering your presentation to PLUG.

Our meetings at the Chandler Police Desert Breeze Substation located at 251 N Desert Breeze Blvd, Chandler, AZ 85226. The meeting starts at 7PM but feel free to come early, someone is usually there by 6PM.

The facilities include a lectern, wireless internet, projector with a resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p). Please show up early if possible to test your computer out on the projector epectially if you have never connected to it before.

The projector has a VGA connector and we have converters for full size HDMI and full size DVI.

We expect that you will be using your own laptop unless other arrangements have been made.

Please let us know as soon as possible if anything comes up that would prevent you from presenting on the selected date so that we can make other arrangements and corrections to our advertisements for the meeting.


Only used for internal purposes, never given out
ex. What is your Linux/FOSS background, Your hobbies and interests.. etc...etc... Please write your biography as if we were writing about you (3rd person)
Our meetings take place the 2nd Thursday of each month for the general meeting and 3rd Thursday of each month for the security meeting

Tips for helping us get the best quality video:

  • Don't wear a green shirt or has a design that contains green on it. We use a green screen so that we can replace the background and create the best video that we can.
  • Try to stay behind the lectern when presenting. The video will be shot relatively tight on you so If you wander around you will be walking off camera.
  • Don't directly point to the physical screen, instead use your mouse. By using your mouse, both the audience and the people at home will know what you are pointing at and you won't be walking off camera.
  • Don't walk in front of the lights. The lights are there to make sure we have even lighting of the presenter. If you walk in front of them, you become a silhouette of yourself because of the bright back lighting.
  • Unfortunately the light needs to be fairly bright in order to be effective. Give yourself a few seconds for your eyes to become adjusted to the light. If the lights are still way to bright or too far into your direct line of sight then please let us know before you start your presentation so that we can adjust them. We would like you to be as comfortable as possible.

PLUG uses email to communicate with those people who choose to be included in the various discussions.

The way email lists work, is once you have subscribed to a list, you then receive any emails that are sent to the email list, by your or anyone else subscribed.

Email lists are a very important method used to communicate within the group. Conversations, discussions, news and assistance are available in the various email lists.

If you are new to PLUG or Free Software we suggest you join the plug-discuss list.

Please feel free to sign up to any email list that may interest you.

As a courtesy to those uninterested, please do not cross-post items to several lists. That's why we have more than one list.

PLUG archives all messages for viewing on the web. This includes any posts you might make.

The posts are archived for posterity and available to anyone else wanting to read them.

You are able to access the archive for the individual mailing list via a link on the same page that provides for subscription maintenance above.
