VTLUUG and CSEC meetings

I’ve attended somewhere around 8 meetings this semester split between the VT LUUG and the Cyber Security meetings and I thought I would reflect on my experiences. Overall I feel like they go over great material in both. The only problem is the groups are more for experienced Linux users. The things they go over require more understanding than just a high level knowledge. Since in class we don’t get to go into too much detail in every area, it is difficult to understand everything they present. The atmosphere is great and for the most part there is a feeling of mutual respect in the room when there are speakers present. The good thing about their presentations is they always have links you can go to if you don’t fully understand everything in the presentation. But the links are much more dense than the version presented in the meetings.
