Welcome to the

Atlanta Linux Enthusiasts

Promoting Linux and Open Source Software Freedom in Atlanta Since 1994
Atlanta Linux Enthusiasts (ALE) is a diverse group of friendly people who enjoy the freedoms and benefits of GNU Linux Computing and Free Liberating Open Source Software technologies. From novices to network administrators, from smart phones to data centers, we strive to empower every information technology user with freely distributable software and to improve every computing environment with the superior security, functionality and flexibility of Open Source Operating System solutions. -- more about ALE --
For information about upcoming weekly and monthly meetings, please check the ALE Meetup Group Calendar. We do not, and never will, require anyone to sign up with Meetup (or any other service) to attend any of our meetings; we only use it as an additional platform to connect with others in the local Atlanta area who are also interested in Linux.

You can do so from here: https://mail.ale.org/mailman/listinfo/ale.

ALE-Central Meeting: Tuesday May 15, 2018 @ 7:30 PM — “Upping Your Game With My Linux Tool Tricks”

Filed at 9:04 pm under by Robert

This month, we have a presentation on Linux Tools by Al Snow: “Upping Your Game With My Linux Tool Tricks”. Based on its reception at November’s DC770 meeting, it is expected to exceed our normal hour-and-a-half.

Al Snow has had a long career using Unix (Bell Labs/Unix,
SunOS, Solaris, HPUX, Mac OSX) and Linux (Ubuntu, Debian/Kali).

Al has created a list of 36 questions that we will go through
together and learn more about 12+ different Linux software tools.
Al will hand out the questions before the meeting so you can
get a head start.

Example question:–
What one-line command do you use to create a word list from a text file?

Graciously hosted by the Decatur Makers (https://www.meetup.com/Decatur-Makers/) on West Ponce de Leon.

Please follow the DM parking advice: Although there is parking available in the church parking lot at the makerspace, we suggest you consider parking across the street or around the corner in the neighborhood to avoid conflicting with a pre-existing weekly Tuesday night church event.
