What we're about

GTALUG helps unite Toronto area Linux users.

Since the early 1990s, GTALUG has provided a common forum to exchange information pertaining to Linux and other open source software and operating platforms. Members meet regularly, participate in our email discussion list, and use the resource facilities of this website. Through participation in the GTALUG forums, and the use of the GTALUG resources, we combine our efforts to both teach and disseminate information, allowing us to better understand and control the open source world we are using, building and promoting to others.

GTALUG welcomes anyone who has an interest in Linux. GTALUG will be a benefit to any Linux enthusiast, from newcomers, filled with questions, to seasoned programmers and system developers, and anyone in between. Have a look at the site and find something that tweaks your curiosity. Then come on out to a meeting and see what we can do for each other.

Code of Conduct

We want a productive happy community that can welcome new ideas, improve every process every year, and foster collaboration between individuals with differing needs, interests and skills.

We gain strength from diversity, and actively seek participation from those who enhance it. This code of conduct exists to ensure that diverse groups collaborate to mutual advantage and enjoyment. We will challenge prejudice that could jeopardize the participation of any person in the community.

The Code of Conduct governs how we behave in public or in private whenever the Linux community will be judged by our actions. We expect it to be honored by everyone who represents the community officially or informally, claims affiliation, or participates directly. It applies to activities online or offline.

We invite anybody to participate. Our community is open.

We encourage you to read the complete Code of Conduct (https://gtalug.org/about/code-of-conduct/) before attending the meeting.

Have a good day, and happy open-sourcing.

FPGAs for Fun, Acceleration, and Profit! with Chris Tyler

George Vari Engineering Building, room 203 (second floor)

This is re-scheduled meeting, as we had to cancel our February meeting due to severe weather conditions. Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have moved from being expensive, exotic prototyping tools to affordable mainstream devices for hardware customization and acceleration. This talk takes a general look at FPGAs, how to use them, the current technology landscape, the increasing use of FPGAs as cloud, leaf, and server accelerators, and related technology initiatives around standardization and cache coherence. We invite anybody to participate. Our community is open.
