NYLUG - New York Linux Users Group Message Board › So we have the following talks lined up this year.
New York, NY
August: Migrating from CVS to Git
September: Scientific computing with Python
Oct: Linux on the desktop, Google-style
Nov: Managing virtual clusters with Ganetti
Dec: Holiday Party
What do people want to hear about? (No guarantees I can find a speaker, so if you have an idea, and a speaker to give the talk you get bonus points!)
A couple ideas to get you started:
1) Opensource cloud stacks. e.g. OpenStack, Cloudstack, and Eucalyptus
2) FLOSS Provisioning tools, e.g. Dell's Crowbar, Ubuntu's Metal as a Service, EMC's Razor, Foreman, and Cobbler
3) A look at all the MySQL clones and forks. e.g. PerconaDB, MariaDB, Drizzle
4) Icinga monitoring
(Yeah I can't count.)
I will probably need close to 2-3 dozen ideas, as I can't always find a good speaker for every topic.
