Fantastic Linux debugging tool. Dave Rodriquez gave a great presentation.
I was unable to make it to the meeting last Saturday at the Camarillo library. Would anyone please let me know how it went and or if it was a good location.
I met with the Camarillo Library Business Coordinator today and all the conference / meeting rooms are available. However... for a regularly scheduled meeting there are things that are in the way:
Meeting every (2) weeks cannot be scheduled.
Meeting on Saturday or Sunday is not available. Would have to be M-F. Evenings are good till 9:00pm Monday or Wednesday. Again subject to availability. They have to be able to allow others too.
There are exceptions to the above restrictions. They do have some small 6 person rooms available to anyone however they cannot be reserved. If they are all being used we would not have a meeting place.
On a plus side of things:
The regular meeting rooms are open, free of charge for a large gathering of tech oriented people such as the "JuJu" presentation from Clint Byrum of Ubuntu or David Lang on large Scale Wireless and David Rodriquez on "strace".
The large meeting would need to be publicly announced by us and the library. There are rooms that will hold up to 200 people and the rooms are very nice.
There is a nice coffee shop in the complex.
Any thoughts? Other locations to consider? Anyone want to do a large presentation we can schedule and promote? Know someone who would? Could be a great opportunity for us, other Linux User Groups and the general Linux community.
I have been to the Camarillo Library and lets give it a try this meeting. Go the second floor and there a small rooms available. They are for Group Study. However the library does allow use by a single person. If all the rooms are being used by single users go to the desk on the second floor and let them know you have a small group for study. They will go and ask the person to leave the room.
Same time, 2:00pm to 5:00pm. http://goo.gl/maps/CFcnI
I do have a meeting with the Camarillo Library Monday to pursue other options. I cannot be there for this meeting, it is a race weekend for me and my son.
This Saturday VCLuG will have another presentation from David Lang on how to handle large amounts of log messages. On the order of thousands of messages per second. Should be very interesting. There will be time to ask questions. We meet generally on the second floor in Theory Room 2 however sometimes we have to use another room nearby. Will have a couple of signs along the way and at the door.After the presentation we will help you with any problems / questions you have about Linux.
New to Linux? Come on by, we are here to help you learn more about the best OS there is!
"Large Scale Wirless" with David Lang. David implemented the wireless for SCaLE, the Southern California Linux Expo. At one time there were 1,900+ connections! There will be time for any questions and answers.
We will have our regular meeting after. Bring you questions / problems and we will do what we can to help.

Bring your thinking caps! We are going to break an application and attempt to debug the errors live! We will not focus on any specific application, this will apply to any application that makes system calls on a Linux system. We encourage everyone to bring your most difficult challenges, although we may not have time to solve them all, David can provide you the information you need to solve your own problems.
VCLuG meets at the ITT Technical Institute in Oxnard: http://goo.gl/maps/XVU8
This presentation only became available today and the only opportunity for it is this weekend.
This Saturday VCLuG along with the Ventura County WebDev and the Ventura PHP Group will present an Introduction to WordPress and "one on one" WordPress help. Glenn Benett, a WordPress expert, runs Happenings , IGroups and has many websites using WordPress. The presentation will run from 1:00pm to 4:30pm. Refreshments will be available.
The juju presentation by Clint Byrum went very well. It was good to learn about how Ubuntu is making headway and creating software to easily manage cloud servers. It is well apparent Ubuntu is taking the lead for all Linux distributions to follow. Clint's presentation was well delivered, to the point and concise. Follow up questions and answers after was great. Many from the Ventura PHP Developers Group were there, SBLUG and various close communities.
