I may have some great resources for you, but I am waiting to get the permission to publish them directly on the open internet.

I have been to a couple of meetings now, but still don’t know much about any of you! I’ll start!
My name is Tage Bushman and currently, I am in my third semester at Western Technical College in the Computer Network Administration course. I moved to Wisconsin back in 2007 from Santa Rosa in Northern California.
I have used Linux for quite some time (mostly Ubuntu) on servers to run websites and some online apps. Last semester, we had a Linux Administration class that opened my eyes to so much more in the Linux world than I had even thought of before and since have become an avid Linux fan. I went from using Webmin (a web administration dashboard) to do all of my domain configurations to installing all the services from scratch and manually configuring them through the terminal.
I will say that I was hesitant to come to the monthly meetup because I thought everyone would be a Linux guru and I would feel extremely out of place, but it is a very welcoming and non-intimidating place! Thank you all for that!
I look forward to continuing to learn more and more about Linux and hopefully work my way up to a presentation for the group at some point. I have found the discussions at the meetups extremely interesting and educational and am excited to see what I learn in the future.
RE: May 2017 Meeting is on the 18th
Last night’s meeting was nice. I liked the presentation on GIMP as I was aware of GIMP, but had not really seen a lot of its capabilities before. Adam’s presentation of Manjaro was also interesting to me with the repositories and the GUI that they use. I might try it out.
I also appreciate the open conversation that we had about privacy and encryption on the internet and all of you who spoke up to answer my questions about the concern.
I look forward to the meeting next month!
