October 11th 2016 - MUG Meeting
We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.
Ten Things You Don't Know About Vim
The last time Wolf spoke at a MUG meeting in August 2014 he extolled the virtues of the Sublime text editor. Fast forward to October 2016, and Wolf suggested a talk about "Ten Things You Don't Know About Vim". Did those ten things change his mind about his editor of choice? Watever the case he'll present new insights into the world's most popular text editor: tools to expose the raw power you didn't know existed, simmering just below the surface of an old favorite --- Vim. This is a great opportunity to listen to a master developer talk about Vim and we're sure you won't want to miss it!
Wolf has been a software engineer for 40 years and lectured on Open Source related topics around the world. He's worked on such varied projects as Mozilla, Final Cut Pro, the Newton, and the SoundDroid. He currently works on K-12 learning software at Cambium Learning Technology.
Bash on Ubuntu on Windows
Windows 10 now provides developers with a familiar Bash environment. This environment will allow users to:
- Run common command line utilities such as grep, sed, and awk
- Navigate the file system using these commands
- Run bash shell scripts which rely on supported command line utilities
Windows accomplishes this through the Windows Subsystem for Linux which allows Ubuntu user-mode binaries provided by Canonical to run on Windows 10. This means that the command line utilities are the same as those that run within a native Ubuntu environment. In this session we will showcase scripting, code editing / compilation, and execution of X11 apps compiled for Linux using a local X11 server from within the Bash on Ubuntu on Windows environment. We will then discuss the implications of these features as they relate to existing developer workflows. Finally, we will show how to obtain the latest bits for Bash on Ubuntu on Windows that are in the recent Windows 10 Anniversary update.
