Just a reminder to everyone that we will have our September  LUG meeting  at 6:30pm on Thursday, September 11th. Directions: When you arrive at Rasmussen College take the elevator to the third floor then turn left.  Tonight we are moving to Classroom 302   to take advantage of the whiteboard!

  • Python Development – Calvin Schultz is going to discuss and hopefully demo a new automation framework he has been developing in Python. He will discuss many  of the issues that you need to keep in mind when developing complex projects in the language.
  • Linux BotNet Discussion –  Joe Granneman of, our resident security expert, is going to give a discussion on the most recent Linux Botnet, its impact, attack vectors, and ways of protecting your Apache/Tomcat servers from its damaging effects.
  • Open Source Security Opportunities – Joe Granneman is also going to discuss his new security company,, and their needs for security talent with a focus on  Linux/FOSS. They are seriously looking for individuals interested in doing security consulting, penetration testing, forensic analysis, and compliance.

The August  RRLug meeting had 5 members attending.  We met at the usual time of  6:30pm in the Rasmussen College Boardroom. We were sadly hit with the double whammy of the Boone County fair and numerous vacations, so our attendance numbers were lower then usual. Consequently we had two old school efforts afoot. One was another debugging session and the other was discussing the News of the Linux news of the month.

  • Linux Debugging Session – we bad a little old time Linux fun in installing and  tuning Linux to run on older hardware. Surprisingly  we were again hit  no one having a cdrom or dvd burner on their laptops any more! Made the challenge even more fun.
  • Linux News – Discuss the general Linux news items from the past month.

We had an outstanding evening of open source fun!
