UNIX Users Association of Southern California - LA

This page is for the Los Angeles County chapter of the UNIX Users Association of Southern California. We welcome people who are interested in any and all forms of UNIX. The primary focus of the group is our monthly presentations, which are designed to hopefully improve technical knowledge, rather than be just sales-type presentations.

Membership is FREE. Just come to a meeting, and sign yourself up for the (e)mailing list!


Next Meeting, Thursday April 3rd, 7pm-9pm

Location: Q 6080 Center Drive Suite 925 Los Angeles California, 90045

Illumos: Past, Present, and Future - Garrett D'Amore

Garrett D'Amore is the founder and technical lead of the Illumos Project, a fully open community project to develop a reliable and scalable operating system that began as a fork of the OpenSolaris operating system, returns to UUASC to give an update to his January 2011 presentation.

Since that time various distributions are now based on Illumos, including an OmniOS image available on Amazon Web Services. There folks at Joyent have ported KVM to their SmartOS distribution and Illumos provides the upstream source code base for the OpenZFS project which brings together developer from Linux, FreeBSD, and OSX.

To get some background the video of the Jan. 2011 presentation can be seen at http://vimeo.com/18799117 .

The livestream for the event will be https://new.livestream.com/accounts/5492092/events/2872230. The stream should come up around 6:30 PM. About the Location:

PARKING: Plentiful parking is available at the Howard Hughes Promenade across the street for a $3. Avoid the parking structure behind 6080 Center Drive - it's crazy expensive.

SECURITY: there is a security desk in the lobby, in case they ask, let them know you're going to Q's office at suite 925.

About UUASC:

The UUASC (http://uuasc.org) is for all persons using UNIX either personally or professionally, or interested in learning more about UNIX. We recognize all varieties of UNIX, including (without prejudice) SCO, Linux, SVr4, Solaris, AIX, HP/UX, and BSD.

Both UUASC chapters are open to everyone; there is no separate membership, we would like you to join our general mailing list so that you can join in the conversation between meetings.
