MUUG Monthly Meetings for 2020-21


Please note our current meeting location: In light of the current concerns over COVID-19 and the risk of infection, and current directives from the University of Winnipeg, MUUG meetings will take place online (typically using Jitsi) until further notice. Meeting link will be provided on the home page, prior to meeting start time.

September 8, 2020: AWS Quickstart

For the new user, the multitude of AWS services and configurations can be daunting. Wyatt Zacharias showed how to start an AWS account from scratch, including how to properly set up your user credentials, and how to get a VM up and running for the first time.

RTFM: fd(1) - a simple, fast, user-friendly alternative to find(1)

Most Linux users are all too familiar with the find command and its frustrating syntax. This month, Brad Vokey showed us an alternative to the find command, called fd.

Some of the features of fd: convenient syntax: fd PATTERN instead of find -iname '*PATTERN*', colourized terminal output, it's fast!, uses smart case by default, ignores hidden directories and files by default, ignores patterns from your .gitignore by default, uses proper PCRE, and the command name is 50% shorter than find. :-)

October 13, 2020: OpenBSD Traffic Shaping and Firewall Setup

Alberto Abrao will show how to set up an OpenBSD box as a router, with a basic firewall, DHCP server etc., and as a bridging firewall, where it behaves like a transparent barrier. Alberto plan to touch on subjects such as the reasons for doing so, the motivation for the choices made, the hardware needed, OS installation and basic configuration. Then, he will give an overview of both scenarios aforementioned, and how to accomplish them.

This will once again be an online meeting. Stay tuned to our muug.ca home page for the official URL, which will be made available a few minutes before the meeting starts. (Reload the page if you don't see the link, or if there are issues with connecting.)

AGM

Plus, this month's meeting will be the MUUG annual general meeting, which included the election of the MUUG board of directors for the 2020-2021 year (often by acclamation, but we're always hopeful for a "real" election).
