Ubuntu in Philadelphia

Last week I traveled to Philadelphia to spend some time with friends and speak at FOSSCON. While I was there, I noticed a Philadelphia area Linux Users Group (PLUG) meeting would land during that week and decided to propose a talk on Ubuntu 16.04. But first I happened to be out getting my nails done […]

Ubuntu 16.04 in the SF Bay Area

Back in June I gave a presentation on the 16.04 release down at FeltonLUG, which I wrote about here. Making my way closer to home, I continued my tour of Ubuntu 16.04 talks in the San Francisco Bay Area. A couple weeks ago I gave the talk at SVLUG (Silicon Valley Linux Users Group) and […]

Ubuntu 16.04 at FeltonLUG and the rest of California

On Saturday, June 25th my husband and I made our way south to Felton, California so I could give a presentation to the Felton Linux Users Group on Ubuntu 16.04. I brought along my demo systems: Lenovo G575 running Ubuntu 16.04, which I presented from Dell mini9 running Xubuntu 16.04 Nexus 7 2013 running Ubuntu […]

Spring Trip to Philadelphia and New Jersey

I didn’t think I’d be getting on a plane at all in March, but plans shifted and we scheduled a trip to Philadelphia and New Jersey that left my beloved San Francisco on Sunday March 29th and returned us home on Monday, April 6th. Our mission: Deal with our east coast storage. Without getting into […]

Ubuntu 14.04 Presentations at FeltonLUG and BALUG

This past week I’ve had the opportunity to join two separate Linux Users Groups (LUGs) to give presentations on the Ubuntu 14.04. The talks were a full talk version of the mini talk I gave at the release party in San Francisco last month, covering: Unity Desktop Server Phablet Xubuntu I’m a member of the […]

Code Review for Sysadmins talk at BALUG

On the heels of my trip to Illinois to speak at ACM Reflections | Projections on building a career in open source, I had the opportunity on Tuesday to speak at the Bay Area Linux Users Group (BALUG) on the system the OpenStack Infrastructure team uses to do systems administration. It was a happy coincidence […]

Ghana presentation at BALUG, DVLUG interview, Mini 9 and off to SCaLE11x!

On Tuesday I had the pleasure of heading out to Chinatown for a Bay Area Linux Users Group to give a presentation on the work I did in Ghana with Computer Reach and Africa ICT Right. This was the first formal presentation I’ve done on the adventure, my previous two talks being a lightning talk […]

Xubuntu Presentation at FeltonLUG

Yesterday afternoon MJ and I headed south to Felton LUG so I could give a presentation with the ambitious title of “Everything you ever wanted to know about Xubuntu” for the group. The group was incredibly welcoming and engaged during my presentation, asking interesting questions throughout. At the end I was able to give a […]

Union Square SF, dinners, BALUG

I sort of feel like I’m still on vacation. Work has certainly been demanding as usual, but working from home in an exciting city is a very different than doing the same while living in the suburbs anywhere. No longer do I feel confined to my home during the work day – my lunch break […]

Berkeley Jam Wrap-up

The Ubuntu Global Jam at BerkeleyLUG was a lot of fun! MJ and I arrived around noon and ordered some pizza (I think I found my good pizza in California, why does it have to be all the way over in Berkeley?). First on the agenda at the event was working on a tri-fold brochure, […]
