This talk will include a discussion of several tools, configurations, and advantages and disadvantages thereof. All tools involved are 100% free and open source.

LUG Organizational Choices, Summary, 13 January 2011

Sun, 2011-01-16 18:27

Ten years ago, TriLUG started operating as a North Carolina non-profit
corporation, in order to accept hardware and monetary donations, in turn
re-donating to schools and local LUGs, acting as an incubator for promoting
Linux. Over time, Linux has become more mainstream, is accepted in the
business world, and even used at schools. TriLUG's mission has therefore
changed accordingly, to become more of an educational and social group for
technology and Open Source. Although we're still devoted to education and
outreach, our income and expenses are now related to pizza and meetings.

Organizational meeting - December 2

Thu, 2010-11-11 10:33

RESCHEDULED: Thursday, December 2, 2010

===============================================
For the last ten years, TriLUG has been operating as a NC non-profit corporation. In the early days, that structure was necessary because the LUG accepted donated hardware and re-donated it to schools and local LUG's. Since then, Linux has become more mainstream, accepted at corporations, and sometimes even used at schools. And in that time, TriLUG's mission has changed significantly, from being an incubator to more of an educational/technical/social group.

November 11 meeting - Open Source Software for Musicians

Mon, 2010-11-01 14:45

Have you ever wanted to use your computer to record or play music?

In the old days, it took a studio full of equipment to produce and record music. But now, the required tools are much more affordable, and can easily fit into a home studio. There is a wide selection of very robust audio applications that run on standard PC hardware, and many of them are FREE ("free" as in "beer" -- but also as in "freedom").

Title: Introduction to ModSecurity, the Open Source Web Application Firewall

About this talk:

So your web server listens on port 80 and your firewall blocks most everything else. Secure, right? How about that port 80? Do you trust your application code? Is your server patched? Are your developers really more clever than the folks who want to break in? Is security even on the mind of your developers?
