BALUG reminders, etc.: Tu. Oct. 18, 2005 meeting: Shell Programming; ...

BALUG 2005-10-18 meeting presentation: Shell Programming, by Michael Paoli

This presentation promises to be a quite useful, informative,
interesting, well referenced and fast introduction to Bourne (sh) and
compatible [Korn (ksh), POSIX, Bash (bash), ash, etc.] shells.

The presentation will cover a fast, but thorough tour of the shell and
shell programming.  It will cover all the way from why one would want to
learn shell, why start with Bourne, etc., how to compactly learn it,
through and including most key features of shell programming, and some
key differences and caveats among the shells, and a collection of
references to help round out leaning about shell programming.

About Michael Paoli, our presenter for this event:
Michael Paoli has been doing UNIX systems administration for well over a
decade, been doing LINUX systems administration for over 7 years, and
has been using and programming Bourne and compatible shells (bash,
etc.) since even earlier than all that.  He's also done well received
classes/labs/presentations before, including topics of security, shells
and Logical Volume Manager (LVM).

LISA '05, San Diego, CA, December 4-9, 2005, sponsored by USENIX & SAGE

USENIX would like us to mention to or remind folks about LISA '05.
LISA (Large Installation System Administration) is a great event for
system (and other computer-related) administrators.  I've been to LISA
multiple times, and highly recommend it.  Lots of great information
about the event can be found at the URL following ... and their clamis
are not overstated:
