GNU Screen is part of the GNU project, and is an overlooked utility that can make working on the command line much easier. Screen is a terminal multiplexer that allows for disconnecting remote sessions, multiple ways to enhance viewing of your command line sessions, and better ways to capture data from those sessions. I’ll show you how to more effectively use Screen, as well as how to install it under several GNU/Linux distributions. The talk is targeted at beginner or intermediate UNIX users. Those attending are encouraged to bring a laptop with GNU/Linux or another UNIX to install Screen and work along during presentation. It will be interactive, with questions encouraged.
Bob Murphy: Create Your Own RedHat Style Home Lab in About an Hour.
Need to learn about Linux servers? Get a self-contained RedHat based lab up and running in no time. What's required: A host computer with virtualization tools installed, RedHat-based iso file to install, and about an hour. It should interest anyone looking to quickly set up an environment to study Linux, either for an exam like RHCSA/CE or just to learn how it works. It will be interactive, with questions encouraged. If the audience members bring a laptop with a VM host installed, and a Red-Hat based .iso file, they can follow along (quickly). The talk slides are at https://github.com/murphnj/hourlab.
Bob Murphy is a long-time desktop Linux user, and a current Linux sysadmin, EFF and Software Freedom Conservancy supporter.
Ben Cotton: Fedora and Future of Operating Systems
Join the Meeting for going to https://lufthans.bigbluemeeting.com/b/plu-yuk-7xx on Apr. 8th at 7pm MST
Operating systems are not boring, but they’re no longer the end of the Linux development pipeline. As interest shifts up the stack to containers and other abstraction technologies, what are operating system makers to do? This talk describes how the Fedora Project views the future of the Linux distribution, why it’s still relevant, and how we’re going to get there. The operating system may not get the attention it used to, but it still plays an important role in providing the foundation that modern applications are built on.

We'll have 2 presentations this month, A conversation with Bradley Kuhn about the Software Freedom Conservancy and (ab)Using DNS

Bradley Kuhn: A conversation with Bradley Kuhn about the Software Freedom Conservancy
We're going to start the new year off with an interview. Bradley and our host will chat about the Software Freedom Conservancy, Free Software and licensing and his history in the Free Software movement.
Bradley M. Kuhn is the Policy Fellow and Hacker-in-Residence at Software Freedom Conservancy and editor-in-chief of copyleft.org. Kuhn began his work in the software freedom movement as a volunteer in 1992, when he became an early adopter of Linux-based systems, and began contributing to various Free Software projects, including Perl. He worked during the 1990s as a system administrator and software developer for various companies, and taught AP Computer Science at Walnut Hills High School in Cincinnati. Kuhn's non-profit career began in 2000, when he was hired by the FSF. As FSF's Executive Director from 2001–2005, Kuhn led FSF's GPL enforcement, launched its Associate Member program, and invented the Affero GPL. Kuhn was appointed President of Software Freedom Conservancy in April 2006, was Conservancy's primary volunteer from 2006–2010, and has been a full-time staffer since early 2011. Kuhn holds a summa cum laude B.S. in Computer Science from Loyola University in Maryland, and an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Cincinnati. Kuhn's Master's thesis discussed methods for dynamic interoperability of Free Software programming languages. Kuhn received the O'Reilly Open Source Award in 2012, in recognition for his lifelong policy work on copyleft licensing. Kuhn has a blog and co-hosts the audcast, Free as in Freedom.
Donald Mac McCarthy: (ab)Using DNS
Let's take a look at DNS from a new perspective. In this presentation we will discuss using DNS for cost savings and speed increases in datastore operations. We will also take advantage of DNS's unique architecture and capabilities to improve redundancy and increase distribution for near zero cost. Finally, I will show how to push security farther toward the entry into the technology stack and make our applications a part of our security posture.
