Welcome to BLUG

BLUG was started in 1998 by a small group of computer geeks who wanted to get off Windows and learn from local Unix gurus. We hold a presentation meeting the first Thursday of the month at Bellingham Technical College in Campus Center CC201. On the second Thursday we hold an informal organization meeting with the time and location announced on the mailing list. We also put on special events including the regional LinuxFest Northwest in the Spring.

The last meeting of 2001!!!
Come to the first BLUG meeting of the year! This presentation will be focused on how to easily setup Linux to work as a full desktop replacement to Windows using the Ximian Desktop. Features include:
Ximian Gnome
Ximian Red Carpet
An introduction to Java Server Pages and Oracle using examples from a web application.

As time permits the following subjects will be covered :

Hardware architecture of application and database servers.
A synopsis of Jython - an implementation of Python in Java. Python is an O-O rapid prototyping language which plays very nicely with 3rd gen languages such as C/C++ and Java.
This month's meeting will talk mainly about Linuxfest design and setup for the 20th. More information will be added as it is brough to my attention.
