== Details ==

The purpose of Manchester Free Software is to promote the Free Software

Every meeting we start with an opportunity for informal key signing.
For an explanation of what this is about see:

The main part of the meeting will be a workshop.

Discover the opportunities for truly free and secure chat, voice and
video with WebRTC, mobile VoIP and the free desktop.  Manchester Free
Software[1] hosts a workshop with leading developer Daniel Pocock[2],
project founder of Lumicall[3], JSCommunicator[4] and DruCall[5] and an
active participant in Debian[6] and many other free software projects in
the SIP and XMPP domain.

This is an interactive session with practical, hands-on opportunities
for developers, system administrators and users to explore this topic.
People wishing to fully participate in all the activities are encouraged
to bring a laptop with the Wireshark[6] software and Android tools[7]
(especially adb[8], the command line utility) or if you prefer to focus
on WebRTC, have the latest version of Firefox, Iceweasel, IceCat and/or
Chromium installed.

If you are keen to run the DruCall module for WebRTC or your own SIP or
XMPP server, you can try setting it up as described in the RTC Quick
Start Guide and come along to the workshop with any questions you have.

People wishing to become familiar with the topic before the workshop may
wish to review Pocock's DebConf15 video[9] and the Real-Time
Communications Quick Start Guide[10].

== After-meeting ==

The meeting will be followed by informal discussion and socialising in
the Terrace (which is next door to Madlab).  There are soft drinks
available and there is no pressure to consume alcohol.

== Location ==

The meeting will take place at the usual venue of Madlab, details above.

== Transport ==

=== Parking ===

Around the venue there are parking meter bays that become zero cost
after 8pm on Tuesday so you will have to pay up until then and the
maximum stay is 2 hours BUT MAKE SURE YOU VERIFY ALL THIS on parking.

There are paid parking lots around the venue, they are marked by a blue
P in this OpenStreetMap centred on Madlab
<http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/53.4843/-2.2365>.  Most of those
parking lots are owned by NCP <http://www.ncp.co.uk/>.

If you can’t decide otherwise then park in Manchester Arndale

=== Public Transport ===

Manchester Victoria (MCV) train station, Shudehill tram and bus station,
and Manchester Piccadilly bus station are all fairly close to Madlab,
