Eglug volunteers who participated in the event:

  1. Manal

1st day

we took the 7:15 train from Cairo and arrived in el Menya @ 10:20. we were staying at The Gam3eyet El Sa3eed hotel in Abu Qurqas, so we decided to have breakfast first in Menya then head to Abu Qurqas.

We met a fellow Linux user from Menya (Dr. Ahmed), who knew us from the photos, he invited us to breakfast and we had a small talk on how EGLUG can help in doing a seminar about FOSS in the Menya university, which Dr. Ahmed and his collegues will try to organize.

Intro to CFEngine session

Cfengine, or the configuration engine is an autonomous agent and a middle to high level policy language and agent for building expert systems to administrate and configure large computer networks. Cfengine is designed to be a part of a computer immune system. It is ideal for cluster management and has been adopted for use all over the world in small and huge organizations alike.

this is a chance to learn about an advanced administration tool from someone who uses it in his daily work.

EGLUG growing???

I just noticed that we passed the 1000 nodes milestone, I suppose thats a long way for our website.

is anyone wondering about the rate by which eglug is growing?

I made a crude plot of eglug's growth with time using.

green is for nodes and red is for users.

what do you make of it?

even though the growth is steady our active members are still among the first 200 (most among the first 100 actually), how to we engage the new members?
