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 August 7th, 7pm-9pm

Location: Q 6080 Center Drive Suite 925 Los Angeles California, 90045

Crypto Currency Mining For Fun and Profit/Loss with Ali Razeghi

About the Presentation:

in July of 2011 UUASC hosted a Digital Money panel which focused primarily on Bitcoin and included miners on the panel. At that time Bitcoin was trading for around $30 and mining was done on high end graphics cards.

Fast forward a few years and bit coin now trades at around $600 and bit coin mining is done on custom ASICs.

Ali Reghazi will bring us up to speed on current day bit coin mining and other technical aspects of Crypto Currencies as the inevitable questions come the members in the audience.

About the Speaker:

By day Ali Razeghi is the Lead DB Engineer at Verizon-Edgecast with a strong focus on CDN automation. Ali is also a principal owner of ABM TECH LLC, a processing company focusing on multi algorithm crypto currencies using ASICs and GPUs.

RSVP and Livestream

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.
