The Linux Users' Group of Davis is a 501(c)(7) non-profit computer club serving the Sacramento region, consisting of hundreds of people who share an interested in the Linux® operating system, Free & Open Source software and other related topics — both technical and non-technical.

Our goals are to advocate the use of Linux and Open Source, to educate the community on these software alternatives, and to support and provide a social network for local Linux users.

LUGOD holds regular meetings twice a month. On the first Tuesday of each month, we hold a social gathering at a local restaurant or café, and on the third Monday of each month we meet at the Davis Public Library to listen to informative presentations by guest speakers. (Day, time and location subject to change!)

We also hold other events and workshops and maintain a number of active mailing lists (some with over 200 subscribers), an IRC channel for live chatting, and communities on social networks (Facebook and LinkedIn).

Our meetings, events and membership, are free and open to the general public. Join us!

Next LUGOD Meeting

Monday, January 16, 2017 @ 7:00pm

* Taming a dinosaur with Docker and JavaScript
Anniversary meeting!
Presented by
Dennis Stevense, Streamline (a division of Digital Deployment)

Open source software can be used in various ways, and 'old' and 'new' can be used together. This talk will discuss maintaining a Drupal 6-based codebase — long after the releases of Drupal 7 (2011) and Drupal 8 (2015), and the recent 'end-of-life' of Drupal 6 (early 2016) — with the help of Docker and JavaScript.

About the Speaker:
Dennis Stevense is Lead Software Engineer at Digital Deployment, responsible for managing the development team, and planning ongoing development of their platform.

About Streamline and Digital Deployment:
Digital Deployment, Inc. is a Sacramento-based web development company specializing in content management systems where ease-of-use and scalability are required. Their clients include UC Davis, United Way, CalSTRS (Calif. State Teachers' Retirement System), and others. Streamline, a division of Digital Deployment, creates tools that help local governments stay compliant with Internet requirements, such as California's Senate Bill 272 (SB-272), the California Public Records Act.

This meeting marks our 18th anniversary! Join us in celebration with free pizza and snacks. Special location: Smashwords, Inc., downtown Davis.
