March 25th is Document Freedom day. So in light of that, lets plan on a discussion around document freedom. I’ll put together some video’s about document freedom that we can watch. If anyone has any lightning talks they would like to do, this would be a great month to bring them! It will likely be a shorter meeting, but we will still have the social hour at Basils afterwards.

This turned out to be a very unique meeting. Starting with a garage door mishap, and then experimenting doing a live stream for the first time. All in all, a really great talk about some great technologies coming out of Canonical. Thank you Matt for coming up to talk to us. At the end we had a short lightning talk about tiling window managers, and a brief demo of Awesome WM. Below is a link to the slides from the main presentation.
Matt Bruzek from Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, will be coming to talk to us about Juju charms.
Juju is a system that provisions and orchestrates across a variety of cloud environments. Juju allows you to deploy best practice services called “charms” to virtual machine instances. The presentation will include a demo of the Juju technology and some of its tooling.

Recloudify Your Life
There was a lot of interest and enthusiasm with this months topic. Covering everything from privacy and security concerns to self hosted file syncing and media center solutions. There where quite a few jokes thrown around, and an almost failed demo due to a lack of an HDMI -> VGA adapter. There was also a brief lightning talk about the tor network, and the idea of black sites. Very cool stuff all around. Below is a link to the slides from the main presentation.
Tired of wondering what all those companies are doing with your data? To kick of the new year, Marc will be discussing some of the problems with cloud computing, and how to recloudify your life by moving to your own cloud. Make your 2015 resolution to become more independant, safe and secure!
