Back on the 11th, I announced that we'd be hosting a party to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Unix
I'm happy to say that this party will be co-hosted by the following local Unix/Linux groups:
Capital Area Central Texas Unix Society (CACTUS)
These guys are the oldest *nix group in town. Back in the early 90s, I used to give them a discount on O'Reilly books at Europa. These guys were the who's who of Austin's first generation of sys and network admins. I'm looking forward to seeing them again.
Austin Linux Enthusiasts
This group started out as the Goodwill Linux User Group. After losing the meeting space at the old Goodwill Computer store, they changed the name. When I started buying servers to build my home lab, Les Nemeth and the ALE guys were a tremendous help teaching me about system and configuration. If you need help, this is a tremendously friendly group.
League of Professional System Adminstrators -- Austin Chapter.
If you want to learn about standards and best practices for system and network administration, LOPSA is a good place to start. A real sharp helpful bunch of guys this is. They have the jobs you want. Meet the group and find out how they got them.
It looks like we may have rain tomorrow, but there is plenty of parking at the Dog and Duck. Plenty of space inside, the patio is covered, and they have a great selection of beer.
Hope you can make it!
