From TLUG Wiki
TLUG meetings will be announced on this page. We are always looking for people who would like to give demonstrations. If you have any ideas about meeting events, please let us know.
All Linux lovers, and supporters of open source code and free software, in the Kanto area (or anywhere else) are invited to attend the next Tokyo Linux Users Group meeting. Membership is open to anyone. There are currently no membership dues or entrance fees.
TLUG meetings are traditionally small and unstructured (VERY CASUAL). Most of the benefit of the meeting comes from chatting with other Linux users and having informal discussions.
As a general rule, the Technical Meetings are held on the 2nd SAT of odd numbered months and the Nomikai Meetings are usually held on the 2nd FRI of even numbered months. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, so it is best to keep an eye on the mailing list, or check back here for date/venue changes as the date approaches.
Meeting / 2007 - 07
July 14th, 2007 (Saturday)
14:00-16:30 (doors open 13:30)
"All the World is a Filesystem: What FUSE is and Why You Care" by Josh Glover
Josh explained FUSE (Filesystem in UserSpacE), introduced a few neat filesystems built on top of FUSE, and mentioned his s3fs-jmglov. A future Lightning talk will be used to present s3fs-jmglov once the code advances beyond Proof-Of-Concept stage.
A Lightning Talk is a short presentation given at a conference or similar forum. Unlike other presentations, lightning talks last only a few minutes and several will usually be delivered in a single period by different speakers.
"OpenSolaris: an update on happenings in Japan and around the world", by Jim Grisanzio, Sr. Program Manager, OpenSolaris Engineering
Jim had OpenSolaris DVDs for all; if you could not make the meeting but want to try out OpenSolaris, you can download CD or DVD images or the OpenSolaris Starter Kit, or request a Starter Kit be mailed to you, free of charge!
"Time Tracking that's not Evil" by Emerson Mills
"Partitioning with LVM2" by Edward Middleton
Questions, trouble-shooting, and smaller demonstrations. If you need some help or have something to show off, please bring your notebook.
"XEmacs" by Stephen J. Turnbull, XEmacs Project Release Manager
