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.

ALE CENTRAL MTG. for 7:30pm on Thurs., January 16, 2014

Filed at 1:16 pm January 16, 2014 under by Ruscetta

The discussion topic for the ALE Central Meeting at 7:30pm
on Thursday, Jan. 16th will be:

It’s been 20 years!?!??! Who’s flying this barge?
moderated by Jim Kinnery

SYNOPSIS: This will be a very informal discussion of ALE past
to future with likely much bleary-eyed reminiscing of the
“the good old days” (the Atlanta Linux Showcase is bound to
be mentioned fondly) and a rousing discussion of where do
we go from here now that Linux won (Microsoft released code
that runs on Android – the Office 365 app for Android devices
[- HA!]). Come join a bit of a victory dance and bring ideas of
where you want to see yourself and ALE over the next year.

We will meet in the Emory Psychology And Interdisciplinary Sciences
(PAIS) building, where we will be guests of the CCI / BMI Lab.
The venue is on the west side of the Emory campus, just off of
Oxford Road at 36 Eagle Row, Atlanta, GA 30322.
