What we're about

The Atlanta Linux Enthusiasts (formerly GA 400 Linux Group) was been started to allow the casual to advanced Linux users to get together and share ideas, knowledge, and face-time with other Linux users. We're focused on helping beginning and returning Linux users learn the basics by establishing a solid foundation. We'll discuss distributions, file systems and storage, installation, databases, networking, and more!

Please visit the http://ale.org website and join the email lists (http://ale.org/?page_id=5) there based on your interests.
This website will be used primarily for event notices, discussion lists and calendaring.

Definitely sign up to the general ALE email list if you want to stay in the know about ALE. You may want to filter email.

If you want immediate help with an issue, both the email lists AND our IRC channel at freenode #ale (https://webchat.freenode.net/) are good places to ask for help.

Upcoming events (4+)

NW Weekly Linux Sessions

Online event

This will be an online-only event.

The CDC now recommends that in areas of "substantial or high transmission" of Covid even fully-vaccinated people should wear a mask in "public indoor settings." As of now, Cobb and other Atlanta-area counties fall into one of those categories.

Since requiring a mask of everyone at Schlotzsky's would be onerous, we're going back to online-only meetings via Jitsi Meet until circumstances change:

https://meet.jit.si/ALE-NW

___________________________________________________________________________________

A hands-on group for assistance with installation, administration, or just about any question related to Linux. Attendees set the agenda. Usually people will form small groups of 2-3 to discuss a topic or work on an issue. Bring your laptop -- please, no desktops -- and show us your problem. If we can't help at least we'll amuse you. No presentations.

If there's interest we can work through a HowToForge tutorial together. Usually this will mean having access to a server or VM (local or remote) to install test stuff into. Feel free to post the URL for a tutorial you'd like for the team to use (must be from https://www.howtoforge.com/) and the crowd choice wins.

Please RSVP, so we have an idea of how many people will be joining us, but only if you are 95% certain of attendance.
