Next Meeting – November 2013 MUG Meeting

We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.

OpenBSD

OpenBSD is known for incredible security, but that’s not what it’s really about and that’s not what the project exists for. Lucas will present on OpenBSD’s history, its technology, and what drives the community. You’ll learn not only what makes OpenBSD unique, but why you should keep an eye on it even if you would never dream of switching away from your current operating system.

Michael W. Lucas is a network engineer, systems administrator, martial artist, and critically-acclaimed author. He was on the Internet before the Web existed, and now works for an independent telecommunications wholesaler in Michigan. His recent books include “Absolute OpenBSD, 2nd edition,” “DNSSEC Mastery,” “SSH Mastery,” “Network Flow analysis,” and the forthcoming “Sudo Mastery.”

Clojure

Clojure is a functional language that runs on the JVM, in the browser, and on the .NET runtime. It provides a clean and syntactically-minimal Lisp dialect, without hiding with the powerful features of the platforms upon which it runs. In this talk we’ll explore the basics of Clojure and see why it’s a compelling choice for industrial-strength application development.

Will Fuqua is a current MUG board member.
