What we're about

KeyLUG, in Frederick, MD, US, is all about Linux and the Open Source ethos, and is for anyone who is

• curious about Linux,

• seeking alternatives to Windows,

• seeking to advance their Linux knowledge and skills,

• seeking alternatives to common proprietary software (including to run on Windows and Mac),

• a developer or other IT professional seeking to better apply their craft in Linux environments,

• a Linux admin or other Linux professional seeking career networking opportunities (patience and comfort with non-professionals and willingness to help them use Linux, and skill in a teaching role, are all greatly valued in KeyLUG).

This group is also intended for STEM students to experience the potential of Linux and associated open source software, and consider the value of a career in this field.

Meeting topics cover a range of experience levels from beginner through advanced professional.

Oh, and we have a lot of fun doing this too!

Ansible—Orchestration Playbook

Mosaic Power

Enterprise IT infrastructure is just too complex to manage manually anymore. Ansible is one of the leading orchestration tools for automating large and complex enterprises. Donny Davis will share his hands on experience with Ansible, to help you grasp the power and simplicity of Ansible as a universal language to turn tough tasks into repeatable playbooks, and roll out enterprise-wide protocols with the push of a button. Come and see how to automate, solve, and share.

Bash in PowerShell and Linux on Windows

Mosaic Power

If you are among the too many people who love Linux but are stuck in Windows much of the time, here are some ways to get some open source love from the Microsoft platform. You can even load a Linux distro and run it on your Windows machine, courtesy of Microsoft! At our May 4 meeting, Preston will show how it's done and explain what's really happening under the hood.
