My apologies - it appears I forgot to re-announce the Beginners Meeting
talk that was rescheduled from March and will now be held today:
Start: Apr 18 2015 12:30
End: Apr 18 2015 16:30
Location: RMIT Building 91, 110 Victoria Street, Carlton South
Daniel Jitnah will have a look at virtualisation technology in Linux,
including a brief demo of setting up and managing virtual machines. Then
he will talk about what "the cloud" really is and its relation to
virtualisation and will demonstrate a very simple cloud system:
OpenNebula... just as an example. He'll also have a look at what are the
common offerings for Linux based cloud software systems.
Daniel is currently vice-president of LUV. He has a particular interest
in free software in education, and has been using Linux for over 15
years as his main operating system. He claims to have never used a
Microsoft OS on any of his machines as main OS.
There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux
installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop
if you need help with a particular issue.
LUV would like to acknowledge Red Hat for their help in obtaining the
Buzzard Lecture Theatre venue and VPAC for hosting.
Linux Users of Victoria Inc., is an incorporated association,
registration number A0040056C.
Hope to see you there!
