CentOS Meetup in London 3rd Dec 2015

By | December 5, 2015


We now have a CentOS Users and contributors group for the UK on meetup.com ( http://www.meetup.com/CentOS-UK/ ), and I hosted the inaugural meetup over beer a few days back. It was a great syncup, and lots of very interesting conversations. One thing that always comes through at these meetings and I really appreciate is the huge diversity in the userbase, and the very different viewpoints and value propositions that people focus on into the CentOS Linux platform, and the larger ecosystem around it.

The main points that stuck with me over the evening were the CentOS Atomic Host ( https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Atomic/Download ) and the CentOS on ARM devices ( and the general direction of where ARM devices are going ). Stay tuned for more info on that in the next few weeks.

Looking forward now to the next London meetup ( likely 2nd week of Jan ’16 ), and also joining some meetings in other parts of the UK. Everyone is welcome to join, and I could certainly use help in organising meetups in other places around the UK. See you at a CentOS meetup soon.
