KLUG Annual Holiday Party 2016

The Kalamazoo Linux User Group was very pleased to welcome Kalamazoo’s native son, Matt Crampton, to our holiday party.  Matt co-founded KLUG in 1998, and as a rising star in the Silicone Valley, he co-founded Gigwalk in 2010.  He currently serves as Gigwalk’s CTO.

Gigwalk is an innovative addition to the “Sharing Economy” where Gigwalkers can earn extra income using a mobile app on their smartphone and performing “Gigs”. Follow this link to a Wall Street interview Matt gave explaining the whole concept:

Those who attended our annual holiday party were very impressed with Matt’s accomplishments and his willingness to share his journey with us. We also had Erbellie’s Pizza and Pasta salad and, of course, our usual Raspberry Pi and Banana Pi from The Crew Restaurant

KLUG Meeting Dec. 13th 2016

The group remoted into the ClearOS server that we are setting up for our network lab.  Working from a terminal on a Linux laptop we used the SSH protocol and learned the how to login remotely.  We then created group and user accounts using command line tools.  We will be expanding the network in future meetings with a variety of physical and virtual machines with a both microsoft and linux software.

The public is welcome to join us at our weekly meetings we welcome both novices and experts!
