Welcome to the TriLUG home page. We are a LUG dedicated to the Triangle area including Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Research Triangle Park. This site, along with our wiki, will enable you to keep abreast of TriLUG information (meetings, events, news), and to communicate with local Linux and FOSS (Free and Open Source) enthusiasts.

The primary modes of interacting with us: mailing list, IRC, or coming to the monthly meetings.

August 12 meeting: Getting Started with IPv6

The IPv4 address space is running out, and the future has arrived.
IPv6 is the new standard for the Internet, and the time to adopt it is
now.

Long time TriLUG member Kevin Otte is a Linux Systems Administrator
and a Network Engineer, and he has more IP addresses in his home
than some countries have.

Come hear Kevin give us not only the "what it is" and "the end is nigh"
parts of the IPv6 puzzle, but also the "how can I tinker with it" and "why
would I want to" parts, as well.

Meeting logistics on the wiki.

July 8 meeting: Why Linux Is Bad For Business

We all love free software. We think it should be used everywhere,
right? And that means Linux... Linux everywhere, right?

Not always. Actually, there are times when Linux is not such a
great fit for the task. There are other solutions...

Wesley Shields will be telling us about his favorite open source
project, and how it can be a good fit for companies that need a Unix
solution. He'll tell us what's similar to Linux, what's different, and
why companies might care.

Wes is a Senior Information Security Engineer for a government
contractor. He spends his days in the trenches fighting the APT and
his nights poking at FreeBSD with a stick. His interests include C
code, network traffic and general mischief and shenanigans.

May 13 Meeting: Puppetize It!

Join us and Mike Seda at Red Hat HQ, May 13th, 7pm

Mike Seda, CEO and IT Consultant at Seda Systems, Inc., will introduce us to Puppet, an Open Source Data Center Automation and Configuration Management framework.

Puppet, is an extremely powerful System Administration tool. This presentation will demonstrate the value in "Puppetizing" both system and application tasks that were originally performed only by hand or via home-grown scripts.

Mike Seda has years of System Administration experience in Research and Enterprise Computing environments. The niche skills that he accrued during this time were (and still are) deemed extremely rare and valuable in the IT industry. One such skill is Puppet, which he has been using to automate tasks for businesses of all sizes since 2008.
