Northern Virginia Linux Users Group (NovaLUG) is the oldest in the Northern VA area - probably in the whole of US. Established 1993, the group is still going strong talking about Linux and anything Open Source. The group meets once a month to socialize and "geek out" on different topics, and in between mailing lists are busy connecting people to solutions, answers to questions and just people interested in Linux to other people with similar interests. For more info about the group check out our web page built by one of our members - http://novalug.org
Containers have taken over how we work with Linux. More and more workloads are created for containers first. This will be an introduction to containers as a foundation for a container platform talk next month. We'll cover what Linux containers are, how to use them, how to make your own, why they are such a big deal and get a bit of hands-on demo while we're at it.
