July 14th, 2015 MUG Meeting
We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.
We've all heard about systemd. Whatever your feelings about it the majority of Linux Distributions have adopted it in some fashion. Scott Tobias will walk us through systemd, including what it is, who is adopting it, and why Linux Administrators need to know systemd (even if they don't care for it). And if you're not fully up to speed on System V initialization he'll also cover some of the differences between the two. You'll also learn about Service Units - the “basic” unit type, Unit file configurationi, Systemctl - systemd’s Swiss Army Knife, and Journald / journalctl. It's a presentation you won't want to miss!
Scott Tobias is a network administrator for the Dearborn Public Schools where he works with Microsoft, Apple and Linux technologies. He was the system admin for the Big Surf Cyber Cafe, Michigan’s first cyber cafe, back when a 14.4 modem seemed fast . From there he moved on to the College for Creative Studies where he ran labs of Apple computers and SGI workstations and finally, DPS. His interests include programming, web development, databases, information design, swimming and eating food.
