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, January 8th, 7pm-9pm

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

Gareth Greenaway aka Dr. Saltstack in How I Replaced All the Crons

About the Presentation:

Salt Stack is at it's heart a remote execution system which also does configuration management very well. Using recent additional to the 2014.7 release, Gareth's presentation will demonstrate how Salt can be used to replace Cron for command scheduling. The talk will also include a brief introduction to Salt and some basic examples.

About the Presenter:

Gareth is SCALE Organizer Extraordinaire, FLOSS Weekly Co-Host, and a core contributor to Salt Stack. Gareth was also featured on the cover of the August 2011 edition of the Linux Journal, the last print edition.

Note: This UUASC-LA meetup occurs on the second Thursday of the month.


If you plan to attend please RSVP at our meetup site

http://www.meetup.com/UUASC26/events/219180294/ 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.
