The Eastern Connecticut Linux User Group was founded in 1997 to promote Free Software running on the Linux operating system and other Free Unix-based operating systems such as OpenBSD, NetBSD, and FreeBSD.
Since the beginning, the group has attracted a wide range of users, from the absolute beginner to seasoned gurus. Our members include MIS staffers from large corporations and local Internet Service Providers, independent developers and consultants, and computer hobbyists. Whether we are beginner or expert, young or old, enterprise or home users, we are united by our love for this versatile, stable, and powerful operating system.
It has been a few months since the group had a regular meeting. I assume we are still able to use the conference room at Norwich Free Academy, with enough prior notice. However, I am not going to continue posting monthly meeting notices here, unless there is sufficient discussion on the mailing list, and we have a definite topic and speaker/coordinator.
This is a fairly comprehensive list of possible speaking topics on eclug.us, based on the lists we've all talked about here previously on the mailing list in years past.
I've tried my best to organize the list into two areas; Beginner and Advanced.
Let me know if any of this seems possible, or off-base, and I can clean it up or edit it to add/remove/reorganize it a bit more.
We could potentially split some of these off into multi-month talks, like a mini-bootcamp style course, for those who really want to learn about some of the topics.
ECLUG is looking for speakers to present at our upcoming meetings.
If you would like to speak, or know someone who would like to speak, please put them in contact with us. Just have them send a quick bio + synopsis of what they would like to talk about to 'firstname.lastname@example.org'.
We'd like to hear about lots of things related to Linux, Unix (yes, including SCO and BSD), Open Source, Free Software, privacy, any many other topics.
Some things we'd like to see in the future include:
* Virtual Iron
* Windows Migration
* Business impact of Linux
* The Ruby scripting language
*..and many many more!
Any other topics are certainly welcome. Contact us and let us know!
