Regular BozemanLUG meeting for the month of December.

Topic Docker - Docker is "an open-source project to easily create lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application." Docker was originally targeted at Ubuntu systems but Red Hat has taken an interest in it and sponsored some contributions that make it distribution agnostic.

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

BozemanLUG: September 2013 Meeting

Sep 5 2013 - 7:00pm
Sep 5 2013 - 9:00pm

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.

The meeting this month was delayed by one week because several members went to LinuxFest Northwest in Bellingham, Washington at the end of April... and weren't quite ready for a meeting the following Thursday.

Topic for this meeting is open but we will be discussing the LinuxFest Northwest trip if anyone is interested. Another informal topic will be systemd.

Hope to see you at the meeting.
