Organizational meeting - December 2

Thu, 2010-11-11 10:33

RESCHEDULED: Thursday, December 2, 2010

===============================================
For the last ten years, TriLUG has been operating as a NC non-profit corporation. In the early days, that structure was necessary because the LUG accepted donated hardware and re-donated it to schools and local LUG's. Since then, Linux has become more mainstream, accepted at corporations, and sometimes even used at schools. And in that time, TriLUG's mission has changed significantly, from being an incubator to more of an educational/technical/social group.

November 11 meeting - Open Source Software for Musicians

Mon, 2010-11-01 14:45

Have you ever wanted to use your computer to record or play music?

In the old days, it took a studio full of equipment to produce and record music. But now, the required tools are much more affordable, and can easily fit into a home studio. There is a wide selection of very robust audio applications that run on standard PC hardware, and many of them are FREE ("free" as in "beer" -- but also as in "freedom").

So your web server listens on port 80 and your firewall blocks most everything else. Secure, right? How about that port 80? Do you trust your application code? Is your server patched? Are your developers really more clever than the folks who want to break in? Is security even on the mind of your developers?

November 12 meeting - PostgreSQL 8.4

Sat, 2009-10-24 20:17

Location: Red Hat HQ, NCSU Centennial Campus
Speaker: Andrew Dunstan
Time: 7pm

The PostgreSQL project released v8.4 of its relational database in July. Andrew Dunstan will introduce us to the project as a whole, and delve into some of the new features (e.g. Windowing Functions) of the recent release. Andrew is also part of the Postgres development team, so as a bonus, we may get a sneak peek at in-development improvements (e.g. Streaming Replication).

Postgres is behind the scenes of many well-known sites and companies, including Cisco, Debian, MySpace, OpenStreetMap, Skype, and Yahoo!.

September 10 meeting - So, You Think You Want to Start an Open Source Business

Mon, 2009-08-24 09:21

NOTE - There was some concern that our speaker might not be able to make it on Thursday night, but we have confirmed that the presentation will proceed as originally planned. - Alan Porter, 9/8 10pm

In 2002, Tarus Balog took a leap of faith by leaving his steady day job and taking over the management of a software package called OpenNMS. He has managed to slowly grow his business by providing support for this open source package, and by following the mantra "spend less than you earn".

Tarus will share his experiences with open source business, how it is viewed by customers, competitors, contributors and leeches.

And if you've got this lingering feeling that you could participate in the open source world and make it your full-time profession, Tarus has plenty of advice. Come join us for an unforgettable talk.
