UNIX Users Association of Southern California - LA

This page is for the Los Angeles County chapter of the UNIX Users Association of Southern California. We welcome people who are interested in any and all forms of UNIX. The primary focus of the group is our monthly presentations, which are designed to hopefully improve technical knowledge, rather than be just sales-type presentations.

Membership is FREE. Just come to a meeting, and sign yourself up for the (e)mailing list!

Next Meeting, Thursday, Febuary 5th, 7pm-9pm

Location: Q 6100 Center Drive (Pepperdine building) Ste 660 Los Angeles California, 90045

William Turner: Staying sane in an Embedded World: A SysAdmin's Perspective

About the Presentation:

Many things we take for granted on desktop and server Linux distributions (like package management) are slightly altered and less friendly in the embedded world. In this meet up William will discuss and demonstrate strategies, techniques, and software packages that help the user leverage the power of embedded Linux systems in a manner that translates well from the desktop and server platforms we know and love.

William will go into some detail on the work he is doing with the Intel Edison, a low-cost, arduino like, general purpose compute platform that fits within the palm or your hand.

About the Presenter:

William is a Linux System Engineer with a background in electronics and math. Currently at EdgeCast networks / VDMS, his main duties consist of helping out with the upkeep of a CDN. During off hours, William has been pursuing his embedded linux passions on the Edison and A13 platforms, playing with digitally addressable LEDs, and 3d-printing.


If you plan to attend please RSVP at our meetup site

http://www.meetup.com/UUASC26/events/219197032/ so we can properly scale the snacks and chairs.

About the Location:

PARKING: Plentiful parking is available at the Howard Hughes Promenade across the street for a $3. Avoid the parking structure behind 6080 Center Drive - it's crazy expensive.

SECURITY: there is a security desk in the lobby, in case they ask, let them know you're going to Q's office at suite 925.

About UUASC:

The UUASC (http://uuasc.org) is for all persons using UNIX either personally or professionally, or interested in learning more about UNIX. We recognize all varieties of UNIX, including (without prejudice) SCO, Linux, SVr4, Solaris, AIX, HP/UX, and BSD. This is a good place to meet others with similar interests and broaden your skills and knowledge.

We usually meet on the first Thursday of the month in L.A.

Both UUASC chapters are open to everyone; there is no separate membership, we would like you to join our general mailing list at http://uuasc.org/general.html so that you can join in the conversation between meetings.
