What: Ubuntu Idaho LoCo Meeting
Where: Open Lab Idaho, 108 W 33rd Street, Garden City, ID (next door to the Reuseum)
When: Tuesday, January 29, 6:00-8:00 PM (added ½ hr for this month’s topic/lab)
Topic(s): Install & Configure Ubuntu Server

Happy New Year to everyone. We've decided to spend the next few meetings on a new theme: Ubuntu Server. The first meeting will be about installation and configuration of a base server. While building a base server, we’ll discuss various configuration options to prep for various server roles and security.

The few months that follow we will cover related topics, currently on the table: Zentyal, Remote Administration & SSH Keys, SAMBA, Shell scripts, Authentication/LDAP, Email server, FreeNAS, Virtualization (Virtual Box, OpenStack & JeOS), LAMP & web frameworks/apps. Feel free to send us requests for presentations (or to offer to do a presentation).


  1. We will be doing a server installation as part of this month's session, so feel free to bring your own machine if you'd like to follow along.

  2. If there is interest, we will also order pizza this round. We ask that if you plan to attend and want pizza you send us an R.S.V.P. at the email address below so we can get a head count. If you don't RSVP we can't guarantee the 'Za!

  3. If you are already familiar with Ubuntu Server, you’re still welcome to come by and help out with those that are learning it for the first time.

Hope to see you there!
