I have secured a speaker for the Wednesday, November 12th Columbia Area LUG
Our guest will be Amy Begg De Groff, Director of Information Technology at
the Howard County Library.
For those that are unaware the Howard County Library system consistently
ranks highly on national lists of public libraries. While maintaining these
high standards they are strong proponents of Open Source. These high marks
are achieved using Ubuntu on all of the nearly 300 [if memory serves on that
number correctly] customer facing PCs. A majority of the staff machines are
running Ubuntu and the backend inventory systems are about to be switched
over to use Open Source solutions.
Go take a peek at the HC Library's blog at
http://hclibrary.org/opensource/to see what she's been talking about
recently. Visit the library if you
haven't for a while and notice the new images that are on the PCs (Full
installs are [being] rolled out, I saw one of them yesterday) with the
customers using them for various tasks, use the free wifi and get your
questions together for her.
As normal the meeting will run from 7-9pm at Tenable Network Security's
Columbia, MD office located at 7063 Columbia Gateway Drive. Enter via the
back door with the blue tables.
