Bob Murphy: An Introduction to GNU Screen - or How to Make the Command Line Work for You When the Network is Working Against You.
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.
