This month, Kris will be presenting *"Hovercraft! - Merging `convenience`
and `cool`!"*

*Hovercraft!* is a framework for creating slides using reStructuredText ,
compiling to impress.js compatible output - all that is needed to display
the slides then is a browser!

Having your slides defined as pure text allows the entire project to be
version controlled and automatically processed, and rendering in a browser
means no office software is necessary on the presenter machine, removing
any compatibility issues.

Its output supports a presenter area with notes and previews, as well as 3D
effects, pan + zoom, just like any modern slide creation and presentation

If you have never been to one of these meetings, just know that it's
friendly and informal - grab a pint or a soda, come ask questions, get help
with open source software and Linux, or simply rant & rave!

There will also be a Linux laptop on hand for a quick show and tell for
anyone who is curious, and you can also bring your own laptop to
troubleshoot Linux, or try Linux on your own laptop - without installing it.

The meeting will be in the back room of the Southsider pub, West Richmond
Street, Edinburgh from 7:30pm, with a brief introduction to Linux, open
source and free software for any newcomers.

The scheduled talk will start at 8pm.
