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.


for Thursday, April 3, 2008

Filed at 3:19 pm under by Ruscetta

The ALE North East meeting presentation
for Thursday, April 3rd will be
“Instant Supercomputer: Just add Linux!”
presented by
Vernard Martin

As the popularity of computing clusters increase, so do the number of
clusters running Linux. Vernard will relate his experience with how
Linux fits in these environments.

Vernard Martin is a founding member of ALE and a Senior Problem
Wrangler for the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University
where he runs their high performance computational environment. He has
been using Linux longer than any sane human being would care to admit.
He lives right outside Atlanta, GA with with his cat Lieutenant and of
course, his own baby cluster.

The ALE North East meetings are held at 7:30pm on the First Thursday
of each month and are hosted at Georgia Gwinnett College, Building C,
room C-1260. Map links and directions to Georgia Gwinnett College location
are posted at the side bar link.

The ALE North East Meeting has found a new home at
Georgia Gwinnett College in the Building C Auditorium
and will resume a regular schedule of meetings on the
First Thursday of each month at 7:30pm.

Map links and directions to Georgia Gwinnett College
location are posted at the side bar link.

The new volunteer meeting moderator for the N.E. group is
Brian MacLeod, and he will be also providing the main presentation
for the N.E. meeting on Thursday, March 6th entitled:

“Kickstart Your Linux Boxes”

Kickstart is an installation method created by Red Hat for the purpose
of quick deployment of Linux computers. It is available for most Red
Hat based distributions (CentOS, Fedora, etc). I will go into some of
the advantages and disadvantages of this method, and what gains we
have made at Georgia Gwinnett College by using it.

Brian MacLeod is a Linux System Administrator and developing VOIP geek
at Georgia Gwinnett College. He has worked for several University
System of Georgia institutions that have called Lawrenceville home,
and has previously presented at ALE meetings on Kickstart, SYSLINUX,
and DHCP Failover.

The meeting may also include further discussion about the direction of
ALE-NE (jumping off from the Feb. ALE Central meeting), including,
as always, volunteers for presentations, as well as discussion about what
people would like to see in the future.
