LXC – LinuX Containers:

It's safe to say that today's cloud computing wouldn't be nearly as prevalent without virtual environments. But virtual machines that emulate hardware (VirtualBox, VMware, QEMU, etc.) can be resource intensive and slow to provision. LXC (LinuX Containers) is an operating system-level virtualization solution that allows for running multiple isolated Linux systems (containers) on a single control host. It allows for flexible and rapid provisioning without requiring additional resources to emulate hardware. Scott Moser is a member of Canonical and has been working extensively with LXC as LXC forms one of the local deployment strategies for testing Juju. But LXC can be used for so much more. In this presentation Scott will talk about how to get started with LXC containers, their uses, and what applications they have in the development and deployment process.

Scott Moser is currently the Ubuntu Server Technical Lead at Canonical Ltd.


Building rich, JavaScript-heavy web applications can be a frustrating experience – HTML is great for static documents, but once we start including JavaScript the complexity of code can quickly spiral out of control. AngularJS, an open-source JavaScript framework from Google, eases the process of developing JavaScript-intensive web applications by extending HTML to allow for expressive, testable abstractions. In this 30 minute presentation Will Fuqua will review the "whats" and "whys" of the framework, and build a rich web application demonstrating the power of AngularJS.

Plus we'll have an eBook giveaway courtesy of O'Reilly Media and our usual fare of fun and thought-provoking discussion!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
