At a recent Tempe Ubuntu Hour, there was a discussion about the orange Ubuntu Pens and their left twist to open.
The Southern California Linux Expo 14x will be held 21-24 January 2016 at the Pasadena Convention Center.
Well, it was not a fluke. There is some interest in Linux and Free and Open Source Software in Cochise County.
After 13 months of hosting a Ubuntu Hour in Sierra Vista and discovering the previous existence of a now defunct Linux User Group, I joined with two other Linux users and members of AZLOCO to attempt to bring the Cochise Linux User Group (CLUG) back to life.
Starting on 18 July the twice a month installfest will return to University of Advancing Technology: 2625 W Baseline,Tempe, AZ 85283 (between 48th and Fry's). The time remains the same 10am to 4 pm.
Anyone interested in Linux is welcome. We can just chat. We can install almost any version of Linux on your computer, router, server, Raspberry PI, or ???. You can fix or learn open source programs in a one on one training class.
Every two years each Ubuntu Local Community must be re-validated by the Ubuntu LoCo Council. Our turn is approaching. Our application has been submitted, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam/Re-validationApplication2015 and we have been placed on the schedule for 1300 MST (1 pm) on 18 August 2015. The meeting will take place on line at #ubuntu-meeting. Please attend if possible. Your support will be appreciated.
