    Ubuntu Server Explained!

    Unlike the flashier desktop edition Ubuntu is better known for, Ubuntu
    Server is a lean, mean, no hand-holding OS. We'll take a dive into what
    makes Ubuntu Server a great choice for the datacenter, as well as on EC2,
    and other virtualization platforms. We'll talk about the release of 10.10
    Server and what is planned for 11.04.

    We'll also take a close look at “cloud-init”, an open source package
    written by Canonical's Scott Moser, that allows you to dynamically
    configure your EC2 and private cloud instances on startup. This allows you
    to maintain fewer server images that are capable of bootstrapping
    themselves to handle a wider variety of tasks and roles.

    More information:

    * Ubuntu Server

    * Ubuntu Cloud

    * Getting Started with Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud

    * Official Ubuntu Images for UEC and EC2

    About Mark Russell:
    Mark Russell is a system engineer working at Canonical, supporting major
    customers using Ubuntu Desktop and Server, Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, and
    Landscape Server. Before jumping into Linux support full-time with Novell
    a few years ago, he spent 10 years in the IT trenches, supporting a bit of
    everything, including some less than open platforms. However, he has found
    true FOSS bliss in the Ubuntu community and will never go back to the dark

    Meeting Location:
    Please note that this meeting will be held at IBM, 590 Madison Ave,
    12th floor, corner of 57th Street, and not at Google. This is
    the building with the IBM logo on the front of the building.


    Swag (Give Away):
    During/after the meeting... unusually terrific swag may be given

    After the meeting ... You may wish to join up with other NYLUGgers
    for drinks and pub food. This month we'll be over at TGI Friday's
    (677 Lexington and 56th Street, Second floor, Northeast corner),
    but we are also evaluating other options for the future and welcome
    your suggestions.

    Coding Workshops/Hacking Society:
    This is a group of people that wants to learn about and work on coding
    in Python, Smalltalk, Ruby, C++, and other languages, and hack on code.
    There will also be help given for those who wish to install Linux for the
    first time.
    Sometimes they go out to eat afterward.

    Bring something to show off and discuss!

    The workshops meet every other Tuesday, at the NY Public Library,
    Hudson Park Branch. 66 Leroy St. NY NY from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    Next meetings are November 23, and December 7.
