What we're about

New!! We now have a Slack channel: https://the-it-crowd-naper.slack.com
If you'd like an invite to the channel, shoot Charles an email or message on here and I'll shoot you the link.

Also, if anyone sees the "$2.00 charge requirement" occur for this group, please let me know and then email or text me your RSVP - don't pay the $! My group isn't one of the 'test groups' that I'm aware of and I plan on never passing that cost along to all of you. If we need to, I'll take the group to another hosting company/service before I will ask for a dollar from any of you.

We are a group of IT professionals that are interested in many aspects of the IT industry. The initial purpose of this group is to allow IT hobbyists and professionals to be able to get together, share information, and help each other learn. We will be discussing many topics including, but certainly NOT limited to, the following: Virtualziation, Firewalls, Security, White Hat/Grey Hat/Ethical Hacking as related to securing networks, Networks in general, and Linux. Other topics along these lines are more than welcome!!

We now have a WebEx account that Charles's work is allowing us to use for our Saturday morning sessions. This means that if you can't make it out to Naperville due to distance, time, etc. and you would still like to attend/participate on the sessions, you can now do it remotely. We will have a different link for each session, so if you can't make it to a session, shoot a message to Charles and he will get you the link for the session so you can join in.

Why Linux, How Linux, and a Privacy Focused Mobile OS

Having the freedom and control of our computer systems may take some time and knowledge, but it is worth it. Craig will share his life experiences on how you too can use Linux at home or on the go with examples such as the open-source Android based GrapheneOS to be secure, private, less distracted, and have more time for what matters in life.

Craig Nuzzo holds a Masters in Computer Science and currently works as Cloud Engineer. He has over a decade of experience using Linux for all his computing needs.

This session will be available via WebEx and Charles, the host, will be sharing the link for the event a day or two before the actual session. For anyone who does want to and is comfortable with it, you are welcome to join us in person. We will be doing our best to maintain social distancing, so please be respectful of those who wish to refrain from getting too close to others. Hand sanitizer and Lysol wipes will be present. Donuts will NOT be provided at this time.
