UbuCon, FAD and Keysigning at SCALE


SCALE 8x Update: Ubucon, FAD and Keysigning, oh my!

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fedora team invites those interested in 
| attending to help create process and how-to 
| content, solve and mentor problems and 
| educate the wider community about how 
| participation is conducted this year in an 
| effort to improve the capacity for more 
| students and mentors for the Google 
| program, as well as others. 


Sign Up for a Spot at LinuxCon 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| The 2010 conference season is already 
| underway â having launched auspiciously if 
| not officially with last month's 
| linux.conf.au â and it's safe to expect 
| that attendees will quickly begin 
| registering, presenters will begin 
| proposing, and before you know it, live-
| from-the-floor reports will be rolling in. 
| Though the latter will have to wait, as of 
| last week, the registering and proposing is 
| on for LinuxCon 2010.


LinuxCertified Announces its next Linux System and Network Administration BootCamp 

,----[ Quote ]
| LinuxCertified,Inc. a leading provider of 
| Linux training, will offer weekend Linux 
| system administration bootcamp on  February 
| 27th - 28th, 2010 in South Bay (CA). This 
| workshop is designed for busy information 
| technology professionals and is designed to 
| cover the most important Linux 
| administration areas. 


Micro LUGs & the LUG Buddies

,----[ Quote ]
| That rules out my own training business, so 
| I have enquired about setting up a Linux 
| Users Group (or LUG, as they are fetchingly 
| known). However, this would be a LUG with a 
| difference. The difference is two-fold: it 
| will be a micro LUG, on an individual town 
| basis, and it will incorporate a buddy 
| system, whereby an experienced Linux user 
| would be teamed up with a newbie, who would 
| hold their hand throughout the setting up 
| process. A suitable name may be LUG 
| Buddies.


Materials from the Free Technology Academy

,----[ Quote ]
| The Free Technology Academy, a "virtual 
| university" with support from the European 
| Commission, has announced that it has made 
| a set of free-software-related educational 
| materials available under the CC ShareAlike 
| and GNU FDL licenses. Available books 
| include The concepts of free software and 
| open standards (291 pages) and GNU/Linux 
| advanced administration (545 pages). Both 
| books are available in English, Spanish and 
| Catalan.
