What are you hoping to gain from VanLUG?

I hope to gain a new circle of people to talk with about Linux and open source. I hope to hear stories of professionals and grizzled veterans and new admins with their thoughts on their company's tech. I would like to build up a set of acquaintances who I feel free to discuss and debate with on a myriad of issues I find interesting. I hope that my own experiences with hard numerical computing might be of interest to others that I meet. Basically I am looking for a conversation that I missing with the current crowd I associate with.

What Linux related interests and skills do you have to share?

Linux administrating and server maintenance. Coding for the linux desktop. Running different distributions. Python on Android. Hacking with node.js. These are some of the things I have experience with directly and am interested in the opensource movement and history more generally.


Hey there, I am currently working on my masters up at UBC in the field of geophysics. I am an Arch Linux enthusiast yet find myself without Linux users among my usual circle. I love coding as a hobby and hacking on new tech.
