PLUG North will be meeting on Tuesday, February 10 at CoreDial's new

This month's meeting will feature a talk by Bruce Momjian.  Bruce
is a co-founder and core team member of the PostgreSQL Global Development
Group, and has worked on PostgreSQL since 1996. He is the author of
PostgreSQL: Introduction and Concepts, published by Addison-Wesley. Bruce

computer science teacher for five years, holds a Masters in Education, and

  Most websites haves several frequently-accessed or slow-downloading
  files. They might also have content that could be very popular one day.
  This talk shows how you can use cloud storage for these files to greatly
  increase your website's bandwidth and responsiveness. This requires
  minimal website changes. The demonstration includes Amazon S3 bucket
  configuration, mapping DNS subdomains to S3 buckets, and using Linux's
  s3cmd tool to upload files. Also included is configuration of CloudFront
  to increase the responsiveness of your website globally.

Never been to a meeting before? New to Linux? Please help us plan an
series of new-user-friendly talks.

At 6:30, prior to the main meeting, we'll assemble in CoreDial's game room
for shuffleboard, pool, and conversation. (Note: RSVP is not required this
month, as food is not being provided.)
The meeting will take place on Tuesday, July 8, from 6:30-9pm (6:30-7 games
and conversation, 7-8 General Q&A, 8-9 Presentation) at CoreDial's new
office space in Blue Bell, PA.
