ABLEconf CfP deadline this Saturday, 2011Jan22

Update: The Call for Presentations deadline was extended to Saturday, 2010Feb05, in order to take advantage of FUDcon being in town with lots of great potential speakers in the crowd.

Added list of orgs to contact for ABLEconf

At tonight's PLUG meeting I asked everyone there to help promote ABLEconf. To that end, it was requested that I post a list of organizations to contact, so I pulled the list out of last year's wiki and created a blog entry.

If you are interested in helping us, please choose appropriate organizations for the Call for Presentations as that closes soon and we still need to reach more people.

Linux paid internship in Scottsdale

There's a post on the PLUG site about a paid Linux internship in Scottsdale.

###
A Scottsdale company is looking for someone to fill a paid Linux Internship. This requires knowledge in Red Hat based distros with a "nice to have" in LAMP type setups. The candidate would report directly or perhaps indirectly, to Mike Ballon; the position does have a good possibility of becoming full time.

Annual PLUG party

Every year PLUG has an end of year party for the December east side meeting.

We encourage bringing family and friends. This is a social event with no presentations. We will have some giveaways including some new Free Software comics.

We also encourage bringing some food to share.

No alcohol because the meeting is at a school.

This will be the only in person PLUG meeting this month, so turn out and participate.

new security lab

PLUG is starting a new security lab on the second Saturday of every month. We'll be meeting from noon until 15:00 at UAT.

A security tool will be presented and then we'll work on using it. Bring a laptop and be prepared to use Live CDs to experiment with various Free Software security tools.

Thanks to UAT for providing a space for us to meet and especially for allowing us to run a security lab on their network.

ABLEconf is almost here

ABLEconf is the brand new Free Software conference for Arizona. Our goal is to introduce Free Software such as GNU/Linux, Firefox, Thunderbird, the GIMP, Inkscape and OpenOffice.org to the general public. We'll also have geek stuff like programming and storage and toys and games :).

The inaugural ABLEconf event is being held on Software Freedom Day, Saturday, September 20th 2008, at the University for Advancing Technology (UAT) from 10:00 to 17:00.
