Fwd: Pine Rivers Computing April Club Night.

Good evening all,

Geoff has contacted me below to see if anyone is available to help the Pine Rivers Computer Club (to the north of Brisbane) with their migration from Windows XP to Ubuntu. With Geoff's permission I've forwarded his email below with all the details.

I will be unable to attend myself but thought I'd see if anyone else was available to help Geoff and the Club out. If anyone has spare time on the 27th of April I would recommend contacting Geoff directly to see how you can help out with their workshop day.

I hope you're all preparing for the upgrade to 14.04, I made the switch yesterday and found it very smooth. If anyone wants to hold a release party it's not too late, just send an email to the list with the details.

Regards,

Jared Norris

Subject: Pine Rivers Computing April Club Night.
To: Jared Norris


Hello Jared (Ubuntu Aust.),

Pine Rivers Computer Club had a presentation night of Open Source systems after much research over past months trying to ready Members for the Windows XP support closure by Microsoft.  MS has been a hard nut to crack owing to the contentment of MS products that many Members had not thought further in their minds that one day product support would alternatively change one's thinking.
 
Club President Mike Dodds pointed out that Microsoft was not leaving 'us' but changing their support basis of products to Tablet and more of Mobile Phone development, plus their recent software development like Window 8, of which some Club Members were experimenting with.

Mike demonstrated Ubuntu and Linux Mint 16.  A Member mentioned how he was happy to be using Linux Mint 15 along side his Windows Xp.  Some Members have expressed interest of obtaining Ubuntu and other Open Source programs for evaluation. (Jared, your donated Ubuntu product is now finding more acceptance as a result of Club Night.)

So, Jared and Matthew, we think we may have 'cracked the nut' in changing Members perceptions about a wider range of IT products.  In some way, you both have played a part in this and for that I thank you.  I certainly have learnt much from our contact!

Our Workshop Sunday Apr.27  will feature demo of Ubuntu product and Linux open Source systems as well as sorting out more Window problems that Members seem to keep for such a Workshop day.

Please feel free to drop into our Club Night first Monday of month, and Workshop Sunday (forth Sunday of month).  We look forward to seeing you.

regards Geoff.

Potential job for a Ubuntu System Admin

Hi all,

I'm looking for someone with skills in Ubuntu System Administration, custom ISO generation, Ubuntu/Debian packaging, server and package testing, and optionally C and/or Perl development for a potential job at my work. 

One of our products is a large server appliance written in C, Perl, and PHP, and built on Ubuntu Server. It is manually packaged into an ISO and Update file, using some complex custom bash scripts - which as you can imagine is a pain to maintain. I'm looking for someone who can turn our custom scripts and hacks into a proper deployment method that can be easily upgraded as new versions of Ubuntu are released. Part of the job could also be maintaining some of our low-level scripts that power the core of the application, which are written in C and Perl.

The position hasn't been confirmed, but a large part of getting it approved is finding someone with the skills we need. It would be a work from home job, unless you're located in Adelaide (where the office is).

Reply to me directly if you're interested or would like more information.

Thanks,
~Stephen

P.s. Please let me know if this sort of post is not allowed on this mailing list, and I won't mention it again.

kubuntu stickers

I have recently received around 200 kubuntu stickers, with the intention to send the to people Australia wide. I'd ideally get whoever sends the "powered by ubuntu" stickers to do this, but until then, send me a paid envelope with your address on it and how many stickers you want. Email me for my address.

Meeting & Team Verification

Good evening all,

Just a brief wrap of the meeting from Sunday, essentially we discussed the awesome event Joel ran at UQ recently where he had 50+ students keen to hear about Ubuntu and also linked up with some of the local LUG members who helped out.

I also wanted to let people know that I went ahead and submitted what we had for the team verification as per the discussion at the meeting. The main feedback at the moment is that it's a little bare of photos so if anyone has any team photos from the last 2 years if they can add them to the team flickr group or the page itself that would be great.

I will do a proper write up of the verification when I have a little more time, if anyone has any specific questions please feel free. The application is purely the wiki page, nothing secret. I believe Joel is going to do a little write up of his event so I look forward to reading it.
