Welcome to the TriLUG home page. We are a LUG dedicated to the Triangle area including Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Research Triangle Park. This site, along with our wiki, will enable you to keep abreast of TriLUG information (meetings, events, news), and to communicate with local Linux and FOSS (Free and Open Source) enthusiasts.

The primary modes of interacting with us: mailing list, IRC, or coming to the monthly meetings.

Scott Hall will kick us off with some of the background and history of Software Defined Radio, and give us an overview of the technical theory behind it. After that, he'll launch into some of the common implementations and cover practical concerns.

Once we've got a bit of technical grounding in the subject, Phil Rhodes will step in with a live demo of some of the hardware and software involved with SDR.

After that, we will open the floor to let others give it a shot, or demonstrate their own SDR equipment. So bring your own SDR dongle on down and play!

About Scott Hall:
I have been interested in electronics and radio since a child (first ham-license when I was 9). I apprenticed & journeymaned to a professional broadcast engineer in high-school going into college, and at the same time building and using computers and software. After getting degrees in both hardware and software engineering, I have careered mostly in Software Development with forays into Embedded Engineering. My first experience in Software Defined Radio was using some DSP's and ham-radio gear back in the 1990's.

Summary
From concept to finished product, it has never been easier to obtain professional results when it comes to audio-video production on Linux.

We will cover some of the hardware that should be part of your production suite, from microphones to jog wheels and highlight some of the top tools for animation, audio, broadcasting, effects, modeling, music, transcoding and video. We will also go beyond the usual suspects and introduce some tools that might not be typically used for AV production.

By the end of the presentation, you will have all the tools you need to improve the quality of your communications, for your personal enjoyment, your career, or your business.

Topic: 
Amazon Web Services (AWS) for Linux Engineers
Presenter: 
Brian Beach

Summary
This session will introduce Amazon Web Services (AWS) for Linux engineers. During this one and half hour session, we will build a web scale application from the ground up on AWS. We will begin with an introduction to Amazon Linux. Then we will examine a few options to deploy and configure an application in the Cloud. Next we will add a load balancer and auto scaling to dynamically add and remove capacity in response to load. Finally, we will externalize static content and add a CDN to take load off our application.

Bio
Brian Beach is a new TriLUG member who recently relocated the Triangle. He has a Computer Engineering degree from NYU Poly and an MBA from Rutgers University. He has been at AWS for two years and currently manages the Enterprise Support team for the Southeast. Before joining AWS he wrote “Pro PowerShell for Amazon Web Services” published by Apress but we won’t hold that against him.

Sponsor
