Welcome to the Silicon Valley Linux Users Group

Linux - The Operating System of the 21st Century TM

SVLUG meetings are first Wednesdays of each month at 7PM-9PM!

Next Meeting

Date Location Speaker
February 17th, 2015 Symantec , Mountain View Sarah Newman,
Software Engineer, prgmr.com, Inc.
Topic: Ansible: Configuration Management for the Impatient

Ansible is an orchestration and configuration management tool, often compared to Puppet or Chef, but is relatively easy to learn, and requires only ssh and Python. Ansible can also be used locally. By the end of this presentation, attendees familiar with the command line but unfamiliar with Ansible should learn enough to start using its basic features immediately.
MORE ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Sarah Newman is a software engineer helping with all aspects of keeping prgmr.com, Inc. alive and running, who has been active for many years in SVLUG. She last spoke at SVLUG concerning the Linux kernel's Netfilter network-management suite, in June 2013.

Future Meetings

Date Location Speaker
March 4th, 2015 Symantec , Mountain View Markus Bawidamann
Topic: X2go, the old Linux Terminal Server Dream has Come True!


Earlier meetings and more details are available on our previous meetings page.
Possible future meetings, yet to be scheduled, are listed on our TBA page.

Note to presenters: At present, we have no Internet connection in our meeting room, so please plan accordingly. If you will be giving a presentation using a Mac, please bring your own Mac > VGA adapter. Symantec does not provide these, and this is the one accessory Mac users forget to bring.
