As has been announced at the last couple of meetings and refernced in posts to PLUG-discuss, we are restarting the planning committee. If you are interested in helping drive PLUG, please join the mailing list. It would be helpful if you can also join the meetings, but that is not required.
PLUG exists only because volunteers work to get things done. This is an open invitation to participate.
As before, the PLUG planning committee is open to anyone who wants to help PLUG. Be prepared to volunteer as it is a working committee.

On any given weekend, the best pub in the Phoenix metro area is whereever the Keltic Cowboys are playing. This weekend the lucky pub is Fibber Magees, a fine pub even when the Keltic Cowboys aren't playing. Last week it was the Tempe Oktoberfest, as funny as that sounds :). The week before it was Rosie's, also a nice pub for any occassion.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Job Night @ Stammtisch! The Free Software Stammtisch is hosting a job night at this coming east valley event on Tuesday, 2012Oct16. The goal is to bring in engineers and managers from groups that are hiring in addition to job seekers and recruiters. For technical positions it's much better to talk directly to the team that is hiring.
Added several modules to my shell scripting class tonight. Added a couple that had been recently been created. Also added a couple I created tonight. Good work on a couple others as well, but they're not yet going online. Working on a lab exercise now. It should be available for tomorrow.
Topics that might be of interest to students include: Resume Writing Strategies and Tips from Tucker Wolfe ( technical and corporate recruiting since 1998 for a wide array of industries ); Mobile Device Forensics from Kristy Westphal ( Director, Security Operations for T-Systems North America ); and Discovering Performance Possibilities in Linux from Curtis Zinzilieta ( Principal Engineer, Walt Disney Animation Studios ). See the schedule for a full list of the topics.
SCaLE 10x was a grand time. Thanks to all of the volunteers that make it happen every year for us! SCaLE adds new things and puts on a very organized, successful experience every year. The volunteers who make it happen are amazing.
SCaLE has once again accepted one of my talk proposals. This year they've tagged me to talk about Nginx.
I'm really looking forward to SCaLE 10x. It's a fun, informative conference. They also add something new every year. For instance, this year one of the new things is a youth-driven mini-conference. Along with the annual educational mini-conference, I think SCaLE's definitely a great resource for parents and educators. I certainly hope the kids enjoy the youth conference!
