Reddit: Giving a 1-hour introductory session to Linux to undergraduate CS/CE students, what are some cool things I must show them?

Wednesday 27th of September 2017 04:20:11 PM

Well, the session is under the title "Introduction to Linux", and I thought that the best use of that 1-hour session is to try and show off what you can do with Linux or the main strengths of it.

I have already thought of some basic uses of commands to show them how creative you can get with just a terminal window (e.g., making a simple alarm clock using a one-line command, some vim magic, i3wm and how you can configure each of them to ur own liking, etc.) So I am basically trying to "impress" them or something of that sort which would probably much more useful than just showing them how to use it (given that the majority of them just use Windows or Mac).

So, if you guys have any suggestions of that sort or some Linux strengths that have to be mentioned/shown in such a session, it would be very much appreciated.

TuxMachines: Installing Linux on your PC is super easy - here's how to do it

Wednesday 27th of September 2017 03:29:00 PM

The Manjaro Linux developers announced the release of version 17.0.5 last week. My objective today is to use this release to show that Linux can be installed from scratch, configured and used for everyday work without using command line (text console) access, and without having to download, compile, install or otherwise perform any manual tasks to install device drivers or other hardware support.

Best of all, the complete installation and configuration can be done in well under an hour!

First, I want to be absolutely clear about this, if you already have Manjaro Linux installed it is not necessary to reinstall from scratch with this new release. All you need to do is make sure that your system has all the latest patches and updates installed and you will in fact be running this new release.

The purpose of these new ISO images is to roll up all the updates and patches that have been made since the last Manjaro point release, and to update the installer itself to the latest version.

Reddit: Heading to a Linux User Group meetup tonight

Wednesday 27th of September 2017 02:25:52 PM

It'll be my second time, with the first mostly being just feeling people out. There's a lot of professionals there, which i strive to be one day, and more than a few literal gray beards. I was the only newbie in this well established group and seem to be the least experienced.

I'm really hoping to get some pointers and network with these people, maybe get some business recommendations. Trouble is, I don't know what to say. Anybody have some advice?
