Saint Louis Unix Users Group

The Saint Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) is an IRS 501c(6) designated not-for-profit professional association dedicated to education and communication among computer users. SLUUG members include many Linux and UNIX professionals, Networking experts, System experts, hobbyists, students, plus many who are interested in Unix, Unix-like Operating Systems, Linux, BSD and other Free Open Source Software (FOSS) applications, products, projects and services.

We have met continuously since we incorporated in July 1992.

All of our meetings are free and open to the public. There is no individual membership fee.

Monthly Technical Presentations

Connection instructions will first be sent to our mailing lists and then linked here .

We will open the remote session at about 6:00 PM, so that you can join early to test your microphone, screen and video sharing.

Then we start at 6:30 PM with our BASE introductory level session (usually focused on personal computing); which may include either amazing graphical packages, blinking lights, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, displays of newly discovered web sites, major resolution of long standing anomalies, quantum discoveries, smoke and mirrors, superb tutorials, or shifts in both time and space.

Sometime after 7:00 PM we attempt a quick welcome, introductions, announcements, current events of interest, and a general CALL FOR HELP (Questions and Answers) segment.

Sometime after 7:30 PM, we may take a short break before our MAIN topic (usually focused on enterprise computing),

Possible Future Topics

What!

Something fundamental, introductory, instructive, short, simple or small.

BASE Topic: Alternatives

Presenter: Scott Granneman

Instead of a single shorter item, followed by a single larger topic, think of this as Web Dev night.

Rather than multiple Lightning Talks, think of the following four items as longer, related, Rolling Thunder Talks.


Something more advanced, detailed, important, new, profound, significant, timely or useful.

MAIN Topic: Four Rolling Thunder Talks

Presenter: Scott Granneman

  • Archiving Web Pages
  • How do you back up a website? Is the backup a complete archive? Did you really get EVERYTHING you needed? Are there things that are referenced or pulled in? What is screen-on-screen, and will it be saved also?

  • Securing WordPress.
  • Free and easy to build blogs or web sites. Open source content management system (CMS) written in PHP and paired with a MySQL or MariaDB database with supported HTTPS. Highly targeted by bad actors.

  • Setting up a Linode .
  • A Linux DOT COM NODE in the cloud that provides virtual private servers.

  • Visual Studio Code (Beginner Level).
  • Free code editor redefined and optimized for building and debugging modern web and cloud applications. For Windows, Linux and macOS.
