Nick Jones is offering a talk on the Sausage Data Centre - spin up tiny weiners with 512MB RAM and 1GB storage, up to massive cumberlands with 32GB RAM and 100GB disk and 8 CPUs…! Run out of a datacentre in the back-end of Scotland, the talk will cover how the datancentre is run, and how open stack is leveraged to its fullest potential!
Laurie Ibbs will be talking to us about the Berkley Software Distribution, a direct descendent of the Bell Labs UNIX system and now most popularly known through the FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD projects. It is an Open Source, permissively-licensed operating system which often both competes with and complements Linux, primarily in the server space.
Right in line with the back-to-uni crowd, we’ll be doing an Introduction to Linux session for those who are curious about it but never knew where to start! We’ll cover
To kick off the new year Paul Broadwith will give us a talk on some technology you’d probably not expect to feature at a LUG…
This month Ian Stuart will be giving us an overview of Jupyter Notebooks, a solution for active web-based documents with running code in them, and how he deployed it on Kubernetes.
This month we will be getting a talk from JB about Termux, a fantastic terminal emulator and GNU/Linux sub-environment for your Android device!
This month’s talk will be on running games on Linux, using Steam, and the state of Proton’s support for Windows games!
For July 2019, Thomas Kluyver will be giving us a rundown of the state of open source smartphones!
Tai has gradually been moving the EdLUG website to Gitlab’s hosting service, with a static website written with markdown and built with Jekyll.
Previously scheduled for May was my (Tai’s) talk on the website, but our guest speaker has a very interesting topic to share - and will be leaving the country soon. So I’ve bumped mine to June.
The Foxy Fiddler announced at our very first meetup on their premises that they would be shuttering and changing to becoming a restaurant. This is unfortunate, as we did try our best when choosing a location, but such is life.
