We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.
Our talks include:
Sudo: You're Doing it Wrong
You all use sudo--it ships with almost every Unix-like operating system. You might even know that sudo has features you don't use. This talk will take you through some of sudo's lesser-known features, including: managing unlimited numbers of machines and operating systems (either with a single policy file or LDAP), using sudo for intrusion detection, logging, debugging, and replaying sudo sessions, and more. Based on the book "Sudo Mastery."
Michael W Lucas has been a sysadmin for twenty years now, and his Unix experience is old enough to have gone out and earned its own master's degree by now. (Sadly, it didn't, preferring to hang out in the computer lab and play NetHack instead of going to class until its scholarship ran out.) Lucas has written a bunch of technology books, including "Absolute OpenBSD" and "SSH Mastery."
2014 and 2015 have some important milestones in the UNIX and Linux communities. Craig and Jim will take a look back at some of the these milestones from the past and upcoming year and reflect on where UNIX and Linux have been and where it's going.
Plus we'll have our usual features: jobs looking for people, people looking for jobs, refreshments, and dinner at Red Lobster after the meeting.
Hope to see you there!
