The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, April 8.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:


   Want to sell something on the net? This month Brad Vokey will
   be presenting on OpenCart -- a powerful open source shopping
   cart system that is feature rich and user friendly.

   OpenCart is a robust e-commerce solution for internet merchants
   to create their own online business and participate in
   e-commerce at minimal cost. It includes an intuitive admin
   interface that allows you to have complete control over your
   store. It also has thousands of high end themes available and
   integrates with hundreds of payment gateways and shipping

   There is also a thriving OpenCart extension market with over
   12,000 extensions currently written for it (and more being
   added all the time). If there is something you need your store
   to do, there is probably an extension already written for it.
   If there isn't, or if you don't like the price someone is
   charging for their extension, you can simply add the code
   yourself, add it to the OpenCart store, and maybe make a little
   money selling your extension to others.

   For this month's RTFM, Michael Doob will talk about PDFtk --
   A handy tool for manipulating PDF.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our *NEW* meeting location for this month: Room 1L08,
   Lockhart Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave.
   between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

   Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
   on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
   or ask a security guard.
