Topic: Drupal 8
Discussion Lead: Scott Dowdle

Drupal is a very popular and widely deployed web Content Management Framework / Content Management System (CMF / CMS). MontanaLinux has been on Drupal since 2006. Drupal 8 has been in development for a couple of years now and will be released "when it is done"... which I'm guessing will be in the next 6 months. I have watched a number of presentation videos on what is coming in Drupal 8 and I've set up a testing deployment of it to learn about it. I hope to share what I've learned about Drupal 8.

Topic: GNOME 3 Shell
Presenter: Jakub Gedeon

GNOME 3 Shell came out a couple of years ago and was a radical change from the previous GNOME releases. Since its release it has gone through a number of iterations, adding new features, refining the interface, etc. Jakub has been using GNOME 3 for quite some time and will show us how to get the best out of it.

Topic: Btrfs Update
Discussion Leader: Scott Dowdle

It has been a couple of years since we last talked about Btrfs. Btrfs is in a lot better shape now than it was back then so it is time for an update.


Jeff Sharkey emailed the BozemanLUG list to say he was in town and planned to make the meeting... and that he uses Btrfs.

Here are the slides (PDF) to a presentation from a Novell/SUSE guy. The video is here.

Here's a Wired article about Ingress, the mobile game that a few LUG members in the state have been playing a lot of.

Some additional topics of discussion include the eminent Fedora 20 release, and advanced x2go usage.

Topic: dwm - dynamic window manager
Discussion Leader: Alan Cleary

DWM is a very efficient, tiling window manager. Alan will discuss why he likes it and show us how to use it.

As you may recall, Chris Ching showed us Awesome window manager a couple of years ago, so we are definitely in need of a tiling window manager refresh.

Topic: Multi-media tools
Discussion Leader: Scott Dowdle

Scott will be discussing the various software tools he uses for doing some common multi-media things like ripping video DVDs, creating video DVDs from a variety of video media file types, converting music files, etc. He has discussed similar topics in the past but has learned about a few newer tools so a refresh is in order.

BozemanLUG: August 2013 Meeting

Aug 1 2013 - 7:00pm
Aug 1 2013 - 9:00pm

Topics: WebRTC, VP9 and Opus

While there isn't a formal presentation planned, we'd like to spend some time talking about the disruptive technology that is WebRTC. With recent browser releases, WebRTC is very usable and there are a number of applications currently available with lots more coming.

Google has been working on updating the webm media container to include two new codecs: 1) VP9, and 2) Opus. These are major quality/compression enhancements for free / royalty free software.
