RSVP to the Startup Edmonton ELUG Meetup event

The Edmonton Linux User Group (ELUG) Meetup is a chance to get together with other users of Linux, GNU, and Unix-like operating systems, and open source software. Our members range from newcomers to power users to seasoned administrators and developers; so, all are welcome!

We meet as an opportunity to exchange ideas, knowledge, and experiences for several reasons:
– to educate for personal and professional growth
– to promote and advocate for the free and open source movement
– to support and assist with Linux-related challenges
– and to socialize with peers who have a common interest

Examples of topics that may be discussed or presented include (but not limited to):
– Exposure to different distributions
– Workshops on various tools and commands
– User-level and system-level development and tuning
– just about anything else Linux-related

We welcome anyone with an interest in Linux and/or open source software and look forward to building the Linux community in Edmonton.

Standard Agenda:

6:00pm – Arrival, mingling, setting up techno-stuff
6:30pm – Welcome & introductions, presentation begins
7:30pm – Announcements, open discussions
8:00pm – Event conclusion (officially, but we usually hang around for as long as we feel like it after)

If you would like to help with the operations of this group, or even just make suggestions, please contact Robert Salomons or Manuel Eller or David Laycock.

This month we had a bit of a round table to think of some ideas of what to talk about in future meetings.

Some of the ideas include:
> Repository management
> Hardware issues: tools and utilities for managing devices
> Security: SSH, GPG, securing your home network, using networked/wireless cameras
> Network: setup, vlans, remote desktops/admin
> Other: how to build a container, user’s personal projects, desktop customization

David showed us how to set up a NextCloud instance. Nextcloud is your own personal cloud offering a myriad of features and functions. You want to setup your own, private iCloud? Nextcloud makes sure your data never leaves your control. You want to be able to edit office documents on in the cloud? Nextcloud offers a full fledged office solution. You want to synchronize your phone’s data with your Nextcloud instance? Install the iPhone or Android app, connect to your server and you are good to go.

If you want to have a quick look at what was covered in our last meeting please feel free to review the video here:

A new year and the ELUG is still strong on their VIM journey. This month, Rajiv presented some of the really, really advance features that VIM offers. If you want to see for yourself, there is a video about that available here.

We had a great walk through this month. Spencer showed off a way to setup his own NTP server in-house. The details are hosted on a private GITHUB site. If you want access to follow Spencer’s instructions, please join our SLACK chat at and contact Spencer for the access to his GITHUB.

ELUG Meetup: September 23, 2021

This month we had an open forum. The focus was on general networking. There were a few questions around DHCP and static IPs. Some basics around network protocols were discussed as well as how these were developed. A few of the items that came up were token ring networking, OCI, TCP, UDP to name a few.

If you want to take a look into our Nextcloud instance you can find that here:
