[PLUG] [plug-announce] Wed, Mar 4, 2015: PLUG Central - "systemd: The Anti-Busybox" by Rich Freeman (7pm @ USP)

PLUG Central will be meeting on Wednesday, March 4, at USP in
Philadelpha, beginning at 7pm. Directions to the meeting location
at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia can be found at
the end of this email.

This month's meeting will feature a talk by frequent presenter Rich
Freeman. Rich is a long-time member of PLUG, and currently serves 
on the Gentoo Council. The talk will be entitled "systemd: The 
Anti-BusyBox", and versions of this talk have been previously given
at PLUG North and PLUG West.

  By now, everone has heard about systemd, the new init
  implementation that has been taking the Linux world by storm.
  This talk will introduce the underlying concepts of systemd;
  discuss its practical, day-to-day use; and explore some of the
  possibilities that it holds for the developer, the distribution
  creator, and the system administrator.

The meeting will be held at our usual location:

  University of the Sciences in Philadelphia (USP)
  Griffith Hall (Room "C" or "A", look for the signs)
  600 South 43rd Street
  Philadelphia, PA 19104-4495

USP is located in University City. Driving directions are
available at, or, both of which have an aerial
view of the campus buildings. USP is also easily accessible by
public transportation.

There will be an open Question & Answer session at 7PM, prior to
the main presentation at 8PM. This is an open meeting; all are
welcome and encouraged to attend.

Usually, a number of members get together after the meeting at a
nearby restaurant for food and perhaps a beer or two. Come join
the camaraderie!
